Apple Releases watchOS 2

Apple has today released watchOS 2. After a whole summer of beta testing, the public can now get their hands on watchOS 2. You must be running iOS 9 first in order to get this update. It is available on all Apple Watches. To obtain watchOS 2, you need to go to the Watch app (that’s how it’s named in iOS 9. Previously called Apple Watch), then go to General > Software update > watchOS 2.

In this update we see many new watch faces, including time-lapse and new colored ones, some new live emoji figures, support for apps to be installed directly on the watch, ability to have developers create their own watch face widgets, called complications, multiple pages of friends, and more. You can learn more about what’s new here.
