watchOS 3 Now Rolling Out to Apple Watches Everywhere

Following the release of iOS 10, Apple today began rolling out a software update to the Apple Watch which brings with it the title of watchOS 3. This new OS upgrade for Apple’s wearable was announced back at WWDC 2016 and entered a beta process which consisted of six different builds all being released over the course of three months. If you’re a developer who’s been testing watchOS 3, you received the first official public release of the software six days ago in the form of the GM seed. The rest of us who haven’t opted in to receive prerelease builds of the update have had to wait until now to get our hands on what Apple’s brining to the table in watchOS 3.


Speaking of which, watchOS 3 will come with 7x faster speeds, a new Dock UI, Control Center, improved Messages app, a Breathe app for stress relief, new fitness features, fresh watch faces, and much more. Not much was released during the beta process of watchOS 3, however tweaks made to various fitness features were present alongside the standard bug fixes and security enhancements.

To install watchOS 3 on your Apple Watch, navigate to the Watch app on your paired iPhone and tap the “My Watch” tab. From there, go to General > Software Update and you should see the updated OS ready for download. Be sure to place your iPhone on Wi-Fi while downloading this software as it’ll surely gobble up plenty of your data.
