Apple releases watchOS 4.2 and tvOS 11.2 beta 1 for developers

After the release of the first beta of iOS 11.2 for developers, could not miss the rest of operating systems such as are watchOS 4.2 and tvOS 11.2 , although it has not yet seen the release of the corresponding beta macOS 10.13.2. But everything is a matter of time or days, as Apple seems to be used to launch macOS independently from other operating systems, as we have seen in some betas.

These versions only are available to registered developers. In watchOS 4.2, we only find the tools needed to develop applications in this version, i.e. the SDK. All the information can be found on the Apple website, which is Xcode 9.2 compliant.
