tvOS 10.2 And WatchOS 3.1.1 Now Available

Alongside iOS 10.2 software update, Apple has also released watchOS 3.1.1 and tvOS 10.1 updates and they are now available for download. The updates bring some new features to both OSes and are now available on the software update sections on all devices.

The watchOS 3.1.1 is a minor update that is available for Apple Watch Series 2, Watch Series 1 and Original Apple Watch models. The update brings Unicode 9.0 Emoji support to bring the Emoji keyboard in line with the new iOS. This update also makes it possible for users to select skin tones for emoji characters that offer multiple skin colors.

tvOS 10.1 is now available for download for Apple TV fourth generation. The new software update brings the long-awaited single sign-on feature that allows Apple TV users to authenticate with their cable provider once and unlock all paid video apps. For many services the sign-on feature is available through the Settings app. Apple has also added the new TV app that allows users to get access to several video services including Movies and TV shows offered by iTunes. The same app has also been added in the iOS 10.2 update.

watchOS 3.1.1 can be downloaded through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General -> Software Update. To install the update, the Apple Watch must have 50 percent battery, it must be placed on the charger, and it must be in range of the iPhone. An iPhone running iOS 10 or later is required to download the new software, but it is available for all Apple Watch models.

To update, Apple TV owners must have their set-top box connected to their computer running iTunes via a USB Type-C to USB-A cable. The software can then be downloaded and installed to the Apple TV 4 running tvOS through iTunes or the Apple Configurator. Once that initial beta software has been installed, all subsequent seeds can be downloaded as over-the-air updates.
