Apple seeds new watchOS 3.2 Beta 3 build for developers

20 February 2017 0

Apple has just released the third beta for the watchOS 3.2, right alongside the respective betas for macOS, iOS, and tvOS. The new beta comes two weeks after the last one, i.e. watchOS 3.2 Beta 2. and almost a month after the release of watchOS 3.1.3, which is the current public version of the OS.

One of the new things Apple is bringing with the watchOS 3.2 betas is the introduction of SiriKit to Apple Watch. SiriKit lets developers use Siri services and integrate their own apps with the virtual assistant. Previously, the SiriKit was only available to iOS apps.

Another major feature in tvOS 3.2 beta is the Theatre Mode which lets mutes alerts on your watch and disables raise-to-wake. It is kind of a toned down version of "do-not-disturb" mode.

"Theater Mode lets users quickly mute the sound on their Apple Watch and avoid waking the screen on wrist raise. Users still receive notifications (including haptics) while in Theater Mode, which they can view by tapping the screen or pressing the Digital Crown."
