watchOS 5.1 Now Rolling Out to All Apple Watch Owners
Today, Apple began rolling out watchOS 5.1 to all compatible Apple Watch owners after a short beta period. The update can be installed by heading over to the Apple Watch app on your iPhone. From there, access the Software update section and hit “Download and install” under the listing. You’ll need to have your Apple Watch on the charging puck to install the new beta to ensure you don’t run out of juice during the process.
watchOS 5.1 features mainly bug fixes and security enhancements over new features for the Apple Watch. That was watchOS 5’s job, which brought things like new workout modes and automatic workout detection, a fun little walkie-talkie app, Siri Shortcuts support, an Apple Podcasts app, grouped notifications, and more to the wrists of millions. Of course, if we spot any notable new features, we’ll be sure to let you know.
