watchOS 8.4 Beta Update

Apple has seeded watchOS 8.4 Beta with build number 19S5525f! This marks the beginning of a new testing stage for the upcoming watchOS 8.4 software update! It will include new features, improvements and bug fixes!

watchOS 8.4 Release Date

We expect Apple to release watchOS 8.4 in February 2022. Apple might not release any new beta until January 2022, because the company takes a break from issuing software updates during Christmas and the New Year holidays.

Important: It’s risky to update your main Apple Watch to watchOS 8.4 Beta. There’s no way to downgrade to watchOS 8.3 and a new beta fixing potential bugs or serious performances issues, might be weeks away!
