Update: Apple has delayed deployment of watchOS 2, possibly for a day or more, after discovering a bug that’s taking longer to fix than expected.

Are you ready? It’s finally time to update your Apple Watch to watchOS 2. The software upgrade will let you run third-party apps right on the Watch without your iPhone, add nightstand mode and new watch faces (including your own photos), and much more.

If you’re ready to make it so, read on and get all these new features on your wrist today.

Ahead Of Big Upgrade, Apple TV Stops Being A ‘Hobby’ For Apple

For years, Apple has been saying its set-top box, the Apple TV, was a mere “hobby,” and reflected that distinction, listing the Apple TV as an accessory instead of a product worthy of its own Apple Store section.

Well, no longer. Today, Apple upgraded the Apple TV to the status of full product line on alongside the Mac, iPod, iPhone and iPad. There’s now a dedicated Apple TV section, as well as a section for Apple TV accessories, Community Q&A and more.

It’s hard to think this timing is a coincidence, given the fact that a new Apple TV update with a focus on gaming is expected soon. Apple’s about to double down on the living room, methinks, and this is just the first sign.
