Apple’s watchOS 6 update delivered major features and the new watchOS 6.0.1 update packs in important fixes for watchOS 6 problems. This small update packs in performance, security, and bug fixes all into one, and if you’re coming from watchOS 5 even more changes. Some users should install the Apple Watch update today, while others will want to wait until tonight or even next week to upgrade to watchOS 6 or watchOS 6.0.1.
The watchOS 6.0.1 update is compatible with the Apple Watch Series 3, Series 4 and Series 5. If you own the Apple Watch Series 1 or Series 2, you can’t install this update yet. You may need to wait for watchOS 6.1 to deliver compatibility.
watchOS 6 is a big update for the Apple Watch with new faces, new apps and an Apple Watch store along with other upgrades. It also promises performance and security updates for the Apple Watch. The watchOS 6 update is pretty big, so you need to plan on spending a decent amount of time on downloading and installing the update. If you are already on that update, the watchOS 6.0.1 update is smaller and installs faster.
We’re hoping this will fix some of the watchOS 6 battery life issues which may be tied to the noise monitoring or the Always on Display on the Apple Watch 5.
Unlike the iOS 13 update, you cannot downgrade from watchOS 6 or watchOS 6.0.1 to watchOS 5.3.2. Once you install watchOS 6, you are stuck on it until Apple releases a new version. Expect to see a WatchOS 6.1 update in the coming weeks.
If you’re on the fence about installing watchOS 6.0.1 on your Apple Watch, this is what you need to know to help you decide. For some users, now is a perfect time to upgrade, but for others, it is better to wait and let others work out any bugs.
