Apple kicks off watchOS 10.4 beta 3 for developers

watchOS 10.4 has been in the testing phase for the past few weeks now, and today, Apple has seeded the third beta of watchOS 10.4 to developers. The incremental beta arrives just one week after the release of the second beta. Obviously, we can’t expect major changes coming with the third beta. Instead, we can expect a few fixes and enhancements. Read on to know more details.

Apple plants the new software on the eligible watches with the 21T5202e build number. The incremental upgrade weighs 322MB in download size. At the time of writing, the update is limited to developers, it should also be available for public beta testers in a matter of time. If you are already on watchOS 10.4 beta, then you can install the third beta on your watch right away.

In terms of changes, there are a few things confirmed to come with watchOS 10.4, including a Vision Pro setting to disable the double tap feature on the Apple Watch. The update bags several new emojis. Apart from these changes, we can expect some other changes based on iOS 17.4.

As always Apple didn’t mention any changes in the beta build’s release notes, but you can expect a number of changes coming with the next watchOS upgrade – watchOS 10.4.
