You might have seen it already, but if you haven’t, Apple has recently rolled out its first ever software update for the Apple Watch, Apple Watch OS 1.0.1, – updating the entire Watch Operating System.
All in all, the Apple Watch OS 1.0.1 update is supposed to provide many bug fixes that were present in the previous version, as well as improvements for the overall performance and the display support for the new Emojis which were added to both OS X and iOS earlier this year.
How to update to Apple Watch OS 1.0.1
If you wish to get the new software update for your Apple Watch, make sure you follow simple steps from the article found in Apple’s knowledge base. Or you could just follow the steps below:
First of all, connect your Apple Watch to a power source and charge it to at least 50 percent and have your Watch connected to a Wi-Fi network. Don’t forget to keep your iPhone close to your Apple Watch, as it’s a crucial part of the whole updating process.
Find the Software Update option within the Apple Watch app, which you can find on your iPhone. Go to the My Watch tab and tap General.
If the watch asks you to enter your Apple Watch or iPhone password, do so.
If you did everything correctly, the Apple logo progress indicator should appear and complete without any interferences, after which the Apple Watch will restart itself.
