Apple has released the golden master (GM) version of watchOS 6 for developers, one day after iOS 13 GM was made available.
The final build of watchOS 6 for developers comes ahead of the public release of iOS 13 on September 19, the day before iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max and Apple Watch Series 5 launches. The new seventh-generation iPad launches on September 30.
Apple has an unorthodox software release cycle this year, compared to last year. Check out the dates below:

With watchOS 6, supported Apple Watches (Series 1-5) will get new activity trends, menstruation cycle tracking, hearing health innovations, new watch faces, enhanced Siri, an on-device App Store and more.
