Sixth watchOS 4.3 beta now available

Apple on Friday seeded the sixth beta of watchOS 4.3 to developers. Those in the developer program with the proper configuration profile can install the update over-the-air by navigating to the Software Update tab in the Apple Watch iPhone app.

WatchOS 4.3 isn’t a milestone update, but it does include a handful of new features and improvements. Nightstand mode is now available in portrait (was just landscape-only), there’s a new charging animation, Music app control of iPhone music, and more.
