Last month, Apple released watchOS 8.1 to the public, which brought Fitness+ SharePlay support. The company has been beta testing watchOS 8.3 with developers and public testers. However, the update seemingly doesn’t add any new major features. Meanwhile, the Cupertino giant has released watchOS 8.1.1 to Apple Watch Series 7 models exclusively. This update fixes a bug that stopped affected models from charging as expected.
Some Series 7 users have noticed that their watches have been charging too slowly. This update should address this issue, and we advise all users to update their watches. If you don’t have an Apple Watch Series 7, then you won’t be receiving this update. To update your Series 7:
Launch the Watch app on your iPhone.
Click on General.
Go to Software Update.
Wait for the page to refresh.
Once it does, the update should show up. Click Download and Install.
Your watch should be charging and at least halfway full to be able to install the update.
