A brand-new operating system update is available for Apple Watches. Even though it’s been only two weeks since watchOS 7.0.1 arrived, the Cupertino based tech giant is now releasing a second version. The reason why Apple is hurrying with the new update is because it focuses on introducing major bug fixes. Therefore, we are advising all Apple Watch fans to get their hands on the update as soon as possible.
watchOS 7.0.2 is Now Available for Download
As previously noted, the new watchOS 7.0.2 update is available to download. The update is rolling out through Apple’s official OTA (over the air) channels and therefore, the only requirement to access the update is to keep your wearable device connected to a stable Wi-Fi network.
If the update doesn’t pop up in your notifications panel automatically, then you should be pleased to know that there is a way to manually trigger it from the Apple Watch app available on the iPhone. Head over to General – Software – Software Update. We also want to mention that the Apple Watch needs to have at least 50% battery in order to start the update.
Here are the official patch notes for the new update: watchOS 7.0.2 contains improvements and bug fixes, including:
- Addresses an issue that could cause the battery to drain more quickly
- Resolves an issue that prevented some users from accessing the ECG app in regions where it is available
As we can see in the patch notes listed above, the new watchOS 7.0.2 update introduces two major bug fixes that are improving the overall performances of Apple Watches. The most significant improvement is taking care of the issue that causes the battery to drain more quickly. While this issue shouldn’t be there in the first place, it’s good to know that Apple is fixing it.
