These issues in the software during beta stage are common because such behavior and bugs are expected during this stage. This allows developers to work on fixing such problems before rolling out the final, stable version of the software. To recap, with watchOS 5, Apple Watch users will be able to challenge their friends to fitness competitions and get digital awards. Apple is bringing support for WebKit so users can browse some websites powered by the tech on their smartwatch.

There will also be interactive notifications, and support for the podcast app. A new Walkie-Talkie feature is also coming as an Apple Watch app. Once you allow a contact to send you a message, Apple Watch users will be able to drop in and send you a voice memo.
