watchOS 3 GM download for Apple Watch is now available to download from the Apple Developer Program website.
Developers Can Now Install watchOS 3 GM on Their Apple Watch Devices Immediately
If you happen to be a registered developer with Apple then you’ll be pleased to learn that you can download and install watchOS 3 GM right on your Apple Watch before anyone else. The download is available immediately, and all it takes is a little patience in order to install it.
The watchOS 3 GM build is the same which will be available to end users later on this month. But of course, if several bugs are found in the run up to that date, Apple will push out a new GM build either ahead of the official public launch, or will end up releasing a slightly updated version of the final build to reflect those changes. But we sincerely wish everything has been ironed out in today’s release, causing little to no problems at all for users who are willing to install it.
Before you even begin installing watchOS 3 GM onto your Apple Watch, there are a few things that need to be made clear. First and foremost, once you upgrade to watchOS 3, there is no way of downgrading back to watchOS 2. Furthermore, having an iOS 10 running iPhone at hand is a strict requirement in order to install watchOS 3, so be sure to check that box before going ahead. Lastly, watchOS 3 is going to take quite a while to install and will require you to have your Apple Watch placed on its magnetic charger. So be sure you are vary of that fact before going ahead with the installation process.
If you’re a non-developer, then you will have to wait a few more days in order to download and install watchOS 3 on your Apple Watch. Unlike Android updates, watchOS 3 will be rolled out the world over on the same day for everyone. So prepare yourself well beforehand for the piece of software tailored for your wearable device.
Non-developers should completely avoid taking unofficial routes in order to install watchOS 3 GM. The full and final build for end users will be available for everyone in a few days’ time, therefore it’s completely not worth it to put yourself into trouble just because a close friend of yours has watchOS 3 well before you.
We will update our users when watchOS 3 final is available for every Apple Watch user out there.
