Apple has released a new version Apple Watch operating system – watchOS. Registered developers can download the watchOS 3.2 Beta 1 from now on and install on their Apple Watch.
The build number is 14V5205d. There is no public beta for watchOS as of yet. Exactly six days ago, Apple released iOS 10.3 Beta 1, macOS Sierra 10.12.4 and tvOS 10.2 published.
WatchOS 3.2 brings the much anticipated “theater mode” to the Apple Watch.
Theater Mode in watchOS 3.2
Every time you turn your wrist, Apple watch turns on the screen. While this function can be an advantage in many cases, it is also a major drawback. The problem arises when we move a little and suddenly the whole room gets illuminated by its screen. This is where the Theater Mode comes into play.
Once activated, the sound of your Apple Watch is switched off. Also, your Apple Watch will not turn on when you lift your arm.
You only feel a small vibration when a new message arrives. If you click on the display or click on the digital crown, the display switches on and you can check the message you missed earlier. Here’s the Theater mode in action.
In addition, watchOS 3.2 brings SiriKit to the Apple Watch. SiriKit allows developers to integrate their applications with Siri. Apple introduced SiriKit for developers in iOS 10 first.
In addition, Apple is concerned about other errors, which have sneaked into watchOS. These bugs have been eliminated and performance is increased.
The final version of watchOS 3.2 is still about two months away.
