One week after seeding the fourth beta and over a month after the release of watchOS 6.1.2 with bug fixes, Apple today seeded the watchOS 6.2 beta 5 to developers.

Juli Clover for MacRumors:

watchOS 6.2 introduces ‌Apple Watch‌ App Store support for in-app purchases, which will allow developers to create and sell ‌Apple Watch‌ apps that offer in-app purchase options and subscriptions.

Code in iOS 13.4, the companion update to watchOS 6.2, suggests that both the ‌iPhone‌ and the ‌Apple Watch‌ will in the future have a “CarKey” feature that will let them be used in lieu of a car key to unlock NFC-capable vehicles. It’s not clear if this feature will be available when watchOS 6.2 launches, but it is in the works.

MacDailyNews Take: With watchOS 6.2 beta 5 now in developers hand, we expect it won’t be long now until users get watchOS 6.2 and their Apple Watches get even better and more fully-featured!
