If you have an Apple Watch, you will need to update to Watch OS2 now that is available. The update will speed up third-party apps, and cut back on your watch’s reliance on the iPhone. For example, voice commands will work when you connect your watch to Wi-Fi and your iPhone is nowhere to be found.
The update process for your Apple Watch is simple but it consumes time. Below is how you can update your watch and make the process very easy.
A few requirements to keep in mind before you start updating your Apple watch:
Your phone needs to remain close to the watch during installation.
Your watch battery needs to be at 50 percent charge or above.
You need to place your watch on the charger during installation.
If you don’t have access to a charging cable, you can still download the update to your phone to speed up installation later.
On your iPhone
Open the Apple Watch app and tap on General.
Select Software Update from the list. It should be the second option.
Once the update is found, tap on Download and Install and follow the prompts.
As it is stated earlier, if you don’t have access to cable, you can download the update to your phone. Then when you have access to cable, simply go back to this screen and tap the Install button.
After the update is downloaded, place your watch on the charger and let the iPhone and Apple Watch do its magic. This installation will take you roughly 20 minutes.
