Last June, Apple reinvented one of its annual events to a virtual non-face format due to the pandemic. And the WWDC20 brought us a huge amount of news for all Apple devices, whether it is iOS 14 if you use an iPhone, the new macOS Big Sur if you use a MacBook or iMac, or the historic novelty of the new Apple processors that will replace the Intel technology.
But what about the Apple Watch? Apple’s smart watch did not miss the appointment either, coming with watchOS 7, the new version of the Apple operating system for its wearable that will arrive this year. Here in this link you have all the news and improvements that the Apple Watch will have with watchOS 7.
And today we will tell you how to install the public beta that is already available. But for this you need to have an iPhone not with iOS 13, but with the beta of iOS 14, which is available for:
– iPhone SE (Generation 1 and 2)
– iPhone 6s and 6s Plus
– iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
– iPhone 8 and 8 Plus
– iPhone X
– iPhone XR
– iPhone XS and XS Max
– iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max
In this link we tell you how to download and install the iOS 14 beta on the iPhone. And once you have it, you can go on to download the beta of watchOS 7, if your Apple Watch is compatible with it. watchOS 7 will be available this fall as a free update for Apple Watch:
– Series 3
– Series 4
– Series 5
Paired with an iPhone 6s or later with iOS 14 or later. So if you don’t have at least an Apple Series 3 watch, you can’t try watchOS 7.

Apple Watch compatibility
If the Apple Watch displays an “!” red, force the clock to restart. Simultaneously press and hold the Side Button and the Digital Crown for 10 seconds and release them when you see the Apple logo. If the issue is not resolved by force restarting the Apple Watch, or if the Apple Watch restarts in recovery mode or shows other issues that require restoring it to the current watchOS version, you may need to send it to Apple support.
