After Apple released new versions of its iOS, iPadOS, tvOS and macOS operating systems this Wednesday, watchOS 9 was missing. Now, everyone is finally in the fourth beta version of the new software.

Some new features are appearing, as mentioned here.

To install ‌‌watchOS 9‌, programmers will need to download the configuration profile from Apple Developer Center. Once installed, ‌ watchOS 9 can be downloaded via the Watch app on the iPhone.

Within the app, users will be able to go to Definitions > Software update. To update to new software, an Apple Watch must have 50% battery life, be placed on the charger, and must be within range of the ‌‌iPhone‌‌.

What's new?

‌watchOS 9‌ introduces four new watch faces, including Lunar, Fun, Metropolitan and Astronomy, as well as including updates to some existing watch faces and complications.

The ECG application now supports atrial fibrillation history to monitor how long a person has been in atrial fibrillation.

The sleep tracking feature now includes sleep stages, allowing the Apple Watch to track when users are in REM, Essential or Deep sleep, and Apple has added a medication app.

The Medication application allows users to manage and monitor the intake of their medications, vitamins and supplements. Brings reminders when it's time to take them.

Workout app updates add custom workouts and improvements for runners, triathletes and swimmers. Fitness+ workouts now support streaming to select third-party TVs for those who don't have an Apple TV, and notifications have been redesigned to be less intrusive when the watch screen is active.
