The upcoming watchOS 4.1 software update has reached the developer beta 4 now as we continue to inch closer to its commercial release, probably around the time iPhone X is scheduled to land on store shelves two weeks from today.

Beta 4 contains no major changes aside from the usual bug fixes and speed improvements.

The first major update to the software powering Apple Watch following the initial watchOS 4 release in September, the watchOS 4.1 software brings several new features.

Some of the more important changes in watchOS 4.1 include a new Wi-Fi toggle in Control Center, over a hundred new emoji, a brand new Radio app, untethered streaming of Apple Music, Beats 1 and your iCloud Music Library over Wi-Fi or cellular and other changes.

For those wondering, Apple Pay Cash should launch with watchOS 4.1 and iOS 11.1.

  • How do I change the layout of the watch apps to be listed like on the video instead of the confusing home screen icons? Or this feature is only for the Series 3 too?

      Go to the app layout screen (where you see all of your apps, like the home screen on iPhone. I hope I’m
      Not over-complicating this exaplaination) and then force touch, you should then receive an option to have grid view or list view.
