Apple Watch Gets Minor Update With watchOS 10.0.1

Apple has released a minor update for its smartwatch operating system, watchOS 10.0.1, which includes bug fixes and security updates for the Apple Watch. The update comes less than a week after the launch of watchOS 10, which introduced new features such as Focus mode, Wallet app, and Portrait watch face.

How to Install watchOS 10.0.1

To install watchOS 10.0.1, users need to have an iPhone running iOS 17 and an Apple Watch that is compatible with the update. The compatible models are Apple Watch Series 3 and later, including the newly released Apple Watch Series 7.

To check for the update, users need to open the Apple Watch app on their iPhone and go to General > Software Update. The Apple Watch needs to have at least 50 percent battery and be placed on a charger to start the installation process.

What’s New in watchOS 10.0.1

According to Apple’s release notes for the update, watchOS 10.0.1 includes bug fixes and important security updates for the Apple Watch. However, the release notes do not specify what bugs or security issues are addressed by the update.

Some users have reported issues with battery life, workout tracking, and connectivity after updating to watchOS 10. It is unclear if watchOS 10.0.1 resolves any of these problems or improves the performance of the Apple Watch.

Apple has also released watchOS 9.6.3 for users who are unable to update to watchOS 10.0.1 or who have not yet installed watchOS 10. This update also contains bug fixes and security updates for older Apple Watch models.

What’s Next for watchOS

Apple is expected to release more updates for watchOS in the coming months, as it usually does with its software platforms. Some of the features that are announced for watchOS 10 but are not yet available include SharePlay, which allows users to watch or listen to content together on FaceTime calls, and Time to Run, which provides audio guidance from celebrities during outdoor runs.

Apple may also introduce new features or enhancements for the Apple Watch Series 7, which is the latest model of its smartwatch line-up. The Apple Watch Series 7 features a larger and brighter display, a faster charging system, and a more durable design than its predecessors.

The Apple Watch Series 7 is expected to start shipping later this month, with prices starting from $399 for the GPS model and $499 for the GPS + Cellular model.
