Watch OS 2 Update Gets Postponed Due To Bug Discovered In Software
Watch OS 2 update has been postponed as the company discovered a bug in it. The company says the update will be released soon after fixing the bug.
A major software update that was supposed to go live yesterday has been postponed due to a bug discovered. In a statement given to BuzzFeed News, Amy Bessette, Apple’s spokeswoman, said, “We have discovered a bug in development of watch OS 2 that is taking a bit longer to fix than we expected. We will not release watch OS 2 today but will shortly.”
Watch OS2 already does a good job when it comes to running many apps at a good speed. The update aims at making the watch work even faster and improve the user’s overall experience.
