Apple Pushes WatchOS 3.2 Beta to Developers
Apple today made a new beta version of watchOS available to developers. WatchOS 3.2 beta 1 includes two core additions to the platform: theater mode and SiriKit. With theater mode, Apple Watch owners will be able to disable sound and raise-to-wake functions while retaining haptic vibrations for notifications. SiriKit, available to iOS since last year, will allow third-party app developers to add Siri features to their own watchOS apps, expanding what Watch owners will be able to do via voice commands. Apple often makes public betas available shortly after releasing developer betas. Developers can download and install watchOS 3.2 beta 1 via Apple's developer console.
