One of the main products that Apple Watch users were interested in following the big Apple event this month, was the release of watchOS 2. Apple stated that is would be released soon, but never game a definitive answer to journalists, analysts, or users. It turns out, watchOS 2 had last minute problems that needed to be fixed before release, and on Monday, watchOS 2 was finally released to Apple Watch users.
The newest version of the Apple Watch software is available to users in the form of an over-the-air download, and is a quick download for users to get. Apple told users a September 16th date was their goal, but as the date passed, users were contacting Apple for answers. They are giving users the download in the form of a queued download system, and users will be able to get it as they request it.
Apple stated that they noticed a bug in the development of watchOS 2, and it was taking longer to fix then they expected. They wanted to make sure all the bugs were fixed before the final release, rather than face a large line of users who couldn’t use their Apple Watches. The new watchOS 2 gives native apps, transit directions, better Siri support, new watch faces, and other exciting features, so users are anxious to download it.
Best of all, its simple to download the latest watchOS 2 on your Apple Watch. All you need to do is go into “GENERAL” and then “SOFTWARE UPDATE” and the prompt for the new download will occur. Apple does suggest a Wi-Fi connection though for the download to avoid any issues, and to make sure the Apple Watch receives the update properly.
So, go download watchOS 2 today, and let us know how you like it.
