Apple Seeds Second Betas of watchOS 3.1.3 and tvOS 10.1.1 Developers

Apple today released new OS betas to its registered developers. watchOS 3.1.3 beta 2 (build 14S959) and tvOS 10.1.1 beta 2 (build 14U711) are now available for testing to the members of Apple Developer Program.

Apple has officially seeded the second developer beta for watchOS 3.1.3. Like the other developer betas, this new software is more than likely a minor update, which is meant primarily to fix behind-the-scenes issues, boost overall performance, and otherwise fix any bugs discovered since the last public update.

To install it, developers must use the dedicated Watch app on their iPhone, then head into General –> Software Update. For the install process to begin, the Apple Watch must be connected to the charger, have 50% battery, and be within range of the iPhone.

Apple has also seeded the second developer beta for tvOS 10.1.1. The new software is a minor point upgrade, and it focuses on behind-the-scenes tweaks and improvements, as well as general performance enhancements. It will also focus on any fixes necessary since the public launch of tvOS 10.1.

To update, developers must have their Apple TV connected to their computer running iTunes via a USB Type-C to USB-A cable. The software can then be downloaded and installed to the Apple TV 4 running tvOS through iTunes or the Apple Configurator. Once that initial beta software has been installed, all subsequent seeds can be downloaded as over-the-air updates.
