Apple has delayed the release of watchOS 2, which was expected to be available today to owners of the Apple Watch.
“We have discovered a bug in development of watchOS 2 that is taking a bit longer to fix than we expected,” an Apple spokesperson told TechCrunch. “We will not release watchOS 2 today but will shortly.”
Given that watchOS 2 is a high profile release for Apple, a relatively important system must have been affected. That said, it takes some guts to hold a widely publicized release to get it right, so good for them. Apple did not give any indications on release timeline beyond ‘shortly’.
