Update: Apple has also released macOS Catalina beta 9 to developers.

Apple today has released the first developer beta of watchOS 6.1 to testers. This comes after the release of watchOS 6 to the public last week for Apple Watch Series 3 and Apple Watch Series 4.

Apple tomorrow will release iPadOS and iOS 13.1 to the public, but we don’t yet have a release date for watchOS 6.1. We’re also still waiting on watchOS 6 for the Series 1 and Series 2 and macOS Catalina, both of which are coming later this fall.

Apple notes that the watchOS 6.1 beta is missing “some of the watch faces new to watchOS 6.”

We’ll update this post with any changes and features we find in watchOS 6.1. Have you spotted any major changes? Let us know down in the comments or on Twitter, @9to5Mac.
