Apple’s wearable just received its first update since the debut on watchOS 6 earlier this month. This offers a handful of bug fixes for the most recent Apple Watch models, and unspecified performance improvements are also promised.

When watchOS 6 launched on Sept. 19 it added an App Store to the Watch, allowing this wrist computer to function more independently than previous versions could. There are also additional faces, complications, apps and improved fitness features.

Apple has already made version 6.1 available to developers, so a larger update isn’t far away.

Bugs fixed by watchOS 6.0.1

Apple’s changlog for today’s release shows it’s just a minor one.

“watchOS 6.0.1 optimizes performance, provides security updates, and contains improvements and bug fixes, including:

    • Resolves an issue where the Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse watch face does not speak time
    • Addresses an issue where the calendar complication may not display events
    • Fixes a bug that could result in a loss of display calibration data”

Install watchOS 6.0.1 today

This tweak can be installed directly onto the Apple Watch, as long as the wearable is connected to Wi-Fi. From the Settings app just navigate to General > Software Update.

Alternatively, this update can be installed from an iPhone by opening the Apple Watch app and going to My Watch > General > Software Update.
