Apple has just seeded the first version of watchOS 2.2.1 to developers, just over two weeks after releasing watchOS 2.2, a significant watchOS 2 update that introduced new features like multi-watch support for iPhones and Maps improvements.
The beta software is available through the specific Watch app. Those interested in accessing the test software can find it by going into General –> Software Update within the Watch app. To install the new software, though, the Apple Watch must have 50 percent battery life, at least, it must be on the Apple Watch’s charger, and it has to be within range of the connected iPhone.
It’s not yet clear what is included in watchOS 2.2.1, but Apple’s release notes say it includes bug fixes and performance improvements, likely for issues discovered since the release of watchOS 2.2. We’ll update this post with any new changes that are discovered in the watchOS 2.2.1 beta.
