Developers who are part of the beta program can obtain the latest versions by accessing them through the Apple Developer Center or updating their devices with the beta software. Typically, public beta versions are made available shortly after the developer releases through the Apple Beta Software Program.

The second beta follows after the first, which landed on June 5 after the WWDC keynote. The second build is number 21R5295g, replacing the first, build 21R5275t.

Apple's changes

in watchOS 10 are numerous, but the highlights include widget alterations, a more easily summonable Control Center, two new watch faces, updates to cycling workouts and hiking, mental and vision health, and Fitness+ improvements.

AppleInsider and Apple strongly suggest users don't install beta operating systems or other beta software on "mission-critical" or primary devices, as there is the small chance of issues that could result in the loss of data. Testers should instead use secondary or non-essential hardware and ensure they have sufficient backups of their critical data at all times.
