The First Beta of watchOS 3.2 With Theater Mode is Now Available to Developers

watchOS 3.2 theatre mode

Last week we saw the first betas of iOS 10.3 and MacOS 10.12.4, but we did not see anything about watchOS except the promise of a “theater mode” with which the watch would not turn on its screen and thus not disturb other people when we are in a cinema

Well, that “theater mode” is already here in the form of new watchOS 3.2 beta for developers. This version will be the second major update of watchOS 3 after the arrival of watchOS 3.1, and should come out accompanied by iOS 10.3 and MacOS 10.12.3 within a few weeks.

The theater mode, let’s remember, allows you to turn off the screen but keep the notifications in the form of vibration. Let’s say it’s a “Do Not Disturb mode”, but that just bothers you. In addition to this novelty we also have SiriKit, which will give more flexibility to developers to take advantage of Siri in the Apple Watch.

Remember that at the moment watchOS 3.2 is a developer-oriented beta, and it is an unstable system that is not recommended for anyone who wants the maximum performance and stability in their watch. If you still install it, remember that you must do it using an iPhone with iOS 10 installed and with more than 50% battery in the Watch.

It is advisable to wait for the public release of watchoS 3.2 as it may contain bugs which may lead to problems. So, wait for a few weeks and let developers test the system and notify Apple of any bugs present.
