watchOS 2.1 Download Released for Apple Watch


It’s yet another magical Apple update release day. After iOS 9.2, tvOS 9.1 and OS X 10.11.2 (which we’re still waiting for), we now have watchOS 2.1 available for download. The change log says the update brings “new language support and bug fixes”.

How to update? Launch the Apple Watch app, then go to General > Software Update and you should see it. You will require, as always, to have your watch connected to its charger and have at least a 50% charge.

    Well, the installation went well, except the final restart. The watch got stuck with the Apple symbol on while rebooting, so after about 20 minutes I forced it to reboot (both buttons pressed till the screen went dark) and the Apple logo than came back and it rebooted fine and is running fine now.
