Apple today seeded the first beta of watch OS 2.2.1 to the members of its Apple Developer Program. The pre-release software can be installed on an Apple Watch through the My Watch → General → Software Update section within the companion Watch app running on an iPhone with the new iOS 9.3.2 beta, which was also seeded to developers this morning.

The software came with a build number of 13V413 and arrived approximately two weeks following the public release of the watchOS 2.2 firmware, a minor update for the Apple Watch that brought out an improved Maps app, support for multi-watch pairing and other tidbits.

The new watchOS SDK 2.2.1 is also available with a complete set of Xcode tools, compilers and frameworks for creating native apps for watchOS. Release notes accompanying the download only mention bug fixes and general improvements.

We’re combing through the release notes and user reports to discover if any new features have been added to watchOS 2.2.1 and we’ll update the article accordingly.
