Yesterday, Apple “began rolling out the third betas of iOS 9, watchOS 2, and OS X 10.11 El Capitan and we’ve been digging into each of them, trying to figure out what is new, changed, and improved,” Chance Miller reports for 9to5Mac. “Most of the changes come on the iOS 9 and watchOS 2 side of things, with the new OS X 10.11 beta focusing mainly on under-the-hood changes.”
“watchOS 2 beta 3 includes a variety of enhancements and bug fixes. For one, the update enlarges the size of the keypad buttons, making them significantly easier to tap,” Miller reports. “iOS 9 beta 3 also brings its fair share of enhancements. For one, Apple News is included in the build, also in a beta form.”

MacDailyNews Take: We’ve now been wearing Apple Watch daily for 2 months, 15 days.
The top issues are, in no particular order: Third-party apps are sometimes slow (but, that’s about to change with Apple soon to allow native third-party apps), the display is difficult to see in direct sunlight, the Watch should recognize repetitive motions (sit-ups, for example) and not turn the display on and off with each rep, email should have a reply option (coming in watchOS 2), and (a very minor quibble) the app icons should display the app name when dragged while the apps are in “jiggle” mode for rearrangement (icons alone sometimes get confusing as to what’s what). Other than that, we have no issues of which to speak.
