Apple has just released a new software update for the Apple Watch, upgrading watchOS 2 to version 2.2.1. The update comes nearly two months after the public release of watchOS 2.2, a major update to the watchOS 2 operating system that introduced multi-watch support for iPhone, Maps improvements, and other features. In testing since April 6, Apple seeded two betas of watchOS 2.2.1 to developers prior to releasing it to the public.
The new software is meant to focus on behind-the-scenes tweaks and enhancements, with plenty of bug fixes in tow as well.
To install the new software on your Apple Watch, you’ll need to open the dedicated Watch app on your iPhone, then head into General and then Software Update. To install the new software on your wearable you’ll need to make sure the Apple Watch has at least 50 percent battery and is placed on the charger. It will need to be within range of the connected iPhone as well.
