The Apple Watch is a great device. It was first released in 2015, and since then it has sold several million units. However, the device did not come with the default iOS software. Instead, it came with its custom software, called watchOS, and eventually, there were updates when the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus were released. Now, users have to update their Apple Watch software as soon as possible.
Updating your Apple Watch software to watchOS 3 is not so difficult, though it takes a bit of work. However, before you start updating, make sure of the following:
- Your iPhone must run at least iOS 10 and your Apple Watch must be paired with your iPhone.
- Your Apple Watch should be charged to at least 50% battery power, or at least it has to be plugged to a power outlet.
HOW TO UPDATE YOUR APPLE WATCH SOFTWARE
If you have fulfilled the conditions stated above, open the My Watch app on your iPhone. From the General button, find Software Update. If you are on the first watchOS, a new update prompt should show and proceed with the download. Enter your four digit password on the Apple Watch screen. The software installation should take a little while.
If anything goes wrong, just hold down the power button and wait until the Apple Watch restarts. If you need to do a hard reset, hold down the power button and the crown until the Watch restarts with the Apple logo.
