Apple starts seeding the second beta of watchOS 9.5 to the developers. Two weeks after the initial beta release, the second beta became available. As an incremental upgrade, we can expect small changes as well as improvements across the system. Read along to know all about the watchOS 9.5 second beta.
Apple plants the new beta on compatible watches with the 20T5538d version number. The incremental beta weighs around 246MB in size, which is obviously smaller than the first beta. You can quickly update your Apple Watch to the newer software.
If you own a watchOS 9 compatible Apple Watch with an Apple developer account then you can freely install the new software on your watch. At the moment, the upgrade is available for developers, it will be released to public beta testers in a matter of time.
Just like the previous beta updates, Apple didn’t share any information about changes in the release notes, but you can expect new features and enhancements with this update. And obviously, we can’t expect much from watchOS 9.5 as we are close to the watchOS 10 announcement which will be revealed at the WWDC event.
