Apple on Wednesday released the first beta of watchOS 3.1.3 beta to developers. Members of Apple’s developer program can install the new beta on any Apple Watch model by launching the Watch app on iPhone and navigating to General > Software Update.

Interestingly enough, today’s watchOS 3.1.3 beta comes just a little more than a week after Apple pulled the public release of watchOS 3.1.1 due to complaints of it bricking select Apple Watch models. We’re not sure why Apple has decided to skip a 3.1.2 build.

We also don’t know what, if any, significant changes 3.1.3 contains. We’re installing the software now, and will be sure to report back if we find anything of note. As always, if you see something interesting in the new beta, feel free to tell us about it in the comments.

    I have a first gen Apple Watch with 3.1.1 installed. No issues at all installing but my battery life has been horrendous ever since. Does anyone know if I can downgrade to 3.1.0?

      Only way to downgrade is to send to apple.

    • I’m on Gen 2 Sport with 3.1.1, only noticed major battery issues. So I’ll be installing this beta via my dev account after work. I hope it fixes the issues, I was getting 3 days per charge. 3.1.1 i’m getting half that.
