Apple released betas today for iOS 9.3, Mac OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan, tvOS 9.2, and of course, watchOS 2.2. All of these new betas are packed with new features, so it’s pretty exciting when compared to the last beta cycle of Mac OS X 10.11.3 El Capitan and iOS 9.2.1, which both aren’t available to the public just yet.
The main feature of watchOS 2.2 is the ability to pair more than one watch at once, just in case you’re a friggin billionaire.
Here are the release notes.
watchOS 2.2 Beta Release Notes
