Apple postpones watchOS 2 due to software bug

Owners of the Apple Watch have a reason to be unhappy today – the company that sits behind these cute small devices, namely Apple, has announced a delay in the launch of watchOS 2. The reason is trivial – there’s a serious bug inside the software.

“We have discovered a bug in development of watchOS 2 that is taking a bit longer to fix than we expected,” an Apple spokesperson has said. “We will not release watchOS 2 today but will shortly.”

This is a big surprise since Apple is a company known for perfectly executing roadmaps while at the same time offering great products. Moreover the bug seems to be affecting the core of watchOS 2 since it alone has prevented the launch of the new mobile OS. Still, on the other hand it is good that the bug was caught before causing tons of damage to unsuspecting watchOS 2 users.

watchOS 2 is expected to offer a number of new features such as expanded support for Siri, transit directions, the ability to travel through a timeline to check weather and appointments, expanded Wi-Fi support when out of range of an iPhone and more. Developers will be happy too – the new mobile OS gives developers the ability to directly access Apple Watch sensors and stream data more efficiently between an iPhone and the watch.
