After a slight delay, Apple has today released watchOS 2 to the public. To install the new watchOS, first make sure that your iPhone is updated to iOS 9. If you’re up to date, just open the Watch app and check for new updates.
The software was supposed to be released on September 16, but it was delayed after an unspecified bug was uncovered just hours before the launch. The update is a pretty significant one, brining a lot of new features. Here are some of the most important features and updates:
- Third-party complications, which allows for different information (weather, world clock etc.) to be displayed right on your watch face
- Beautiful time-lapse watch faces (high-speed videos of Mack Lake, New York City, London, Paris, Hong Kong, and Shanghai)
- Custom photo watch faces
- Developers can now create apps that run on the watch, which opens a lot of new options
- Nightstand mode
- Time Travel, a new feature that allows you to rotate the Digital Crown and see your schedule for tomorrow, or see what the weather will be like in a few hours.
- Enhanced Siri
- Better Apple apps and more
