How to install watchOS 10 Public Beta?

If you were excited by Apple’s return of widgets to the Apple Watch at this year’s WWDC event, you’ll be even more excited with watchOS 10 Public Beta, where you can try these changes without waiting until the fall. We explain how to install watchOS 10 Public Beta here. However, there are some important points you need to know before proceeding with the installation.

First off, watchOS 10 is a serious update, and in addition to bringing widgets back to the platform, it completely redesigns the apps on Apple’s own smartwatch and reimagines the way you interact with the device. This includes changing many of the features and controls you’ve gotten used to by now. Additionally, you can’t revert to watchOS 9 after installing the beta. This means you need to make your decision wisely. If you don’t want to relearn how you use a smartwatch, it might make more sense to wait for the official release in the fall.

Additionally, since beta software is not the final product, some applications may not work properly, the battery may drain faster, and some new features may not be available yet. Additionally, to install watchOS 10, you must first install the iOS 17 public beta version on your iPhone. This means agreeing to install beta versions on both your devices. Therefore, we recommend always creating backups and using secondary Apple Watches and iPhones if possible.

If you’re still eager to install the beta, it’s good news that Apple has made the beta installation process easier this year. Below is a list of what you need to do:
