After watchOS 7.3 with the Pan-African Unity watch face, it’s now time to look ahead to the next batch of features and improvements for the Apple Watch. In watchOS 7.4 beta, developers can already test them. The update will be available to everyone soon, but first it is up to the developers.
Most recent watchOS 7.4 Beta
watchOS 7.4 beta 1
January 27, 2021 – Apple has released the first beta of watchOS 7.4. We will update this article as soon as we know more about the new features.
Download watchOS 7.4 beta
The beta of watchOS 7.4 is available to developers with the correct beta profile. If you have already installed a previous beta of watchOS, you will see the update appear automatically. We expect the beta to be available to public testers soon.
Pay attention: these betas are only intended for developers and public testers are not suitable for use on devices that you need on a daily basis.
Over watchOS 7.4
Because this is already the fourth update, we expect that there will be mainly small tweaks. Apple will also fix some bugs and problems from previous versions, but we do not expect really big new functions.
Timeline watchOS 7.4 beta
Below is a timeline of the watchOS 7.4 betas. We expect watchOS 7.4 in the spring of 2021.
- watchOS 7.4 beta 1: January 27, 2021 (published)

About testing betas
You can often run into problems when testing betas. First of all, not all functions are usually available immediately, but are added and expanded during the test period. You can also suffer from crashes or some apps may not work properly yet. So keep this in mind if you decide to test a watchOS update. It is therefore not recommended to install a beta on a device that you use every day, because there can still be many problems in the beta. In addition, you cannot downgrade with watchOS.
This article will be published over and over with new betas, updating the newly added features.
