WatchOS 3 will launch on 13 September
Apple has announced that the upgrade for Apple Watch and the new Apple Watch 2 will launch next week.
Apple demonstrated watchOS 3 back at its WorldWide Developer Conference (WWDC) back in the middle of the year, and today it’s announced exactly when you’ll be able to upgrade to it if you’re an existing Apple Watch owner.
WatchOS 3 will become available on 13 September, just prior to the availability of the new Apple Watch Series 2 range. It’ll be a free upload, and you should be notified from your Apple Watch when it’s ready to upgrade.
Apple’s Tim Cook said on stage at the iPhone 7 launch event that Apple Watch is the number 2 watch brand in the world having launched last year, and the number one smartwatch brand in the world.
As with other Apple Watch releases, you can expect the servers to somewhat melt down when available if Apple’s sales figures are accurate, so a little patience on that day would be wise.
