Apple Releases watchOS 2.0.1

Apple updated all of their software today. iOS 9.1 and Mac OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan were both publicly released today, along with the GM seed for tvOS, the OS that will power the new Apple TV that will ship next week.

Perhaps a more subtle release was watchOS 2.0.1. Here’s what’s new:


This update contains new emoji characters,
performance improvements, and bug fixes,
including:
• Fixes an issue that could cause software updates
to stall
• Fixes issues that were impacting battery
performance
• Resolves an issue that prevented a managed
iPhone from syncing iOS Calendar events to Apple
Watch
• Addresses an issue that could prevent location
information from properly updating
• Fixes an issue that could cause Digital Touch to
send from an email address instead of a phone
number
• Addresses an issue that could cause instability
when using a Live Photo as a watch face
• Resolves an issue that allows the sensors to stay
on indefinitely when using Siri to measure heart
rate

As we know, this is a bug fix update. Note that all software conforms to a version standard, which is major.minor.bug fix. For example, watchOS 2 was major, watchOS 2.1 will be minor, but watchOS 2.0.1 is bug fixes.
