Apple Delays Release of Watch System Software, Makes iOS9 Available

Apple delayed the release of watchOS 2 due to a bug Wednesday, with a spokesperson telling reporters that the latest version of Apple’s smart watch operating system will be made available “shortly.”

Apple originally planned to make watchOS 2 available Wednesday. The update will make it easier for developers to build full-featured apps running on the device. Some of the apps taking advantage of these new features will include a GoPro app that turns the watch into a view finder for the popular action cam, and a Facebook Messenger app.

The watchOS delay doesn’t impact another major software release for Apple: The company is going to make iOS 9 available for iPhones and iPads starting Wednesday at 10 a.m. PT.
