watchOS 3.2 Goes Live for Developers [VIDEO]

Apple has seeded the next iteration of its wrist-top OS to testers.

The new version of software –only available to registered developers at the time of writing– finally brings with it that long-talked about “Theatre Mode,” first pegged by Sonny Dickson and said to be coming to iOS (soon).

Apart from its expected future location within iOS Launch Center, though, how or if this feature would work across the company’s other main platforms – was left largely unclear.

That was until the release of watchOS 3.2‘s first beta, earlier tonight.

On Apple Watch, the company details the new feature as consisting of a ‘toggle’ that is designed to “[disable] raise-to-wake for alerts” without having to “change the mode in the Settings app,” Hall writes.

As is shown above the new addition toggle can be found within watchOS‘s own “Launch Center,” (accessible with a single swipe up on the smartwatch’s display), just below the device’s on-screen ‘silent’ mode button … and can be identified by the usual ‘Theatre’ icon of two Shakespearean masks.

Installation of watchOS 3.2 (Beta 1) via Apple’s ‘Watch’ app on iPhone first requires the download of a special provisioning profile, which can be installed at


MacRumors has published a full hands-on video detailing the new feature.
