Apple Releases watchOS 9.0.2 With Microphone And Spotify Fixes
Apple has today released a new watchOS 9.0.2 update to the world, one that appears to fix a number of issues that had been plaguing Apple Watch owners of late.
The update, which can be downloaded now via the Watch app on the iPhone that the wearable is paired with, fixes a problem that prevented Spotify music from streaming correctly.
It also deals with a problem that prevented microphone audio from working properly on Apple’s latest Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Ultra models.
Other fixes include one that saw AssistiveTouch users receive notifications to snooze an alarm even after it was deleted as well as incomplete syncing of Wallet and Fitness data when iPhones were paired with a new Apple Watch.
If you’ve been dealing with those issues or others, we’d suggest downloading the updated watchOS release as soon as possible. Remember that your Apple Watch needs to have at least 50% charge and be on the charger when the update begins, however.
This update arrives alongside a new iOS 16.0.3 update that is also now available for download. Apple is also in the middle of a beta test program for watchOS 9.1 and iOS 16.1, with both updates expected to be released to the public in the next few weeks.
