    I enjoy using my Watch a great deal, but the one thing I dislike is upgrading its firmware. It takes too long, in my opinion.
    You are right about that. The process took about 1 hour to complete. So far it seems to be doing ok. I will see how it goes tomorrow at work when I have it off the charger for 12+ hours.

    I don't see watchos 4 Beta3 yet? I am on Beta2 and I guess it is the latest!
    I installed WatchOS 4 beta 3 earlier today. Too early to notice any differences in performance or battery life.

    Great observations and thank you for keeping us updated. Are you going to make a Genius Bar appointment soon?
    I Called Apple Support and it arranged for me to pick up a replacement from the local Apple Store. In my rush to get out of the store, I didn’t think to yank the SIM card from my old iPad, so I have to go to Verizon for a new one tomorrow. But iOS 11 beta 3 is running on the new iPad, and seems pretty solid so far.

    But Apple Watch update takes about 4 times as long as an iPhone. It’s painfully slow.

    I feel your pain. At home with 500+mbps download even a 2GB iOS update take 2-3 minutes and a watchOS update of 100mb takes 10-15 minutes. It’s ridiculous. That’s just the download, that’s not including install time.

    Anyone with watch os 4 beta 3 having issues with heart rate only calculating when asked to do so? Mine used to calculate throughout the day but not on the beta.

    Mine is working throughout the day. I installed straight from 3.2.2. I didn’t have beta 2 installed.

    I think the “swipe up to view earlier notifications” is getting ironed out and will return in the next beta/final release? To view notifications on the lock screen (after actually locking it) if you swipe up in the middle of the screen like previously it brings up all notifications. It doesn’t have the text like before to inform you but works just the same. Anyone confirm?

    Also, I’m still not understanding “press home to unlock”. If you just rest your finger on Touch ID like before it “unlocks” then asks you to press home to open BUT if you just rest your finger then click a notification it jumps right into the phone.

    Sorry if this has been brought up earlier

    To those who were having VPN-related issues, has Dev Beta 3 fixed the problem for you?
    My opera VPN issues have resolved themselves. It's rubbing very slow but t connects. I downloaded a second VPN to use that's quicker. Although I'm on the public beta you guys in the dev forum are quicker to answer.

    I found out today from Apple that this feature will be greyed out and disabled. Unable to toggle if “Two-Factor” authentication is not setup yet.

    Makes sense, but it would be nice to see some explanation in the settings regarding the need for the two factor authentication to enable.

    To those of you who use text replacement shortcuts, check the settings to see if your items are still listed. If not, try to create a shortcut and see if you’re successful or not. Thanks.

    Press and hold, drag the notification toward the home button. That is the new swipe motion to delete it.
    Thank you! That was driving me batty. Can't believe I didn't notice that on my own. Not terribly crazy about the method at the moment but we'll see.

    Right? Breaking the habit of swiping is not easy for me. I try that at least once a day and of course it does not do what I’m expecting. Lol.

    No, but I've been having app freezes/resprings fairly often lately. Might have to reset settings if we don't get an update today/tomorrow.
