After months of waiting Apple now has watchOS 8 ready for us all to download and install on our Apple Watches.

There have been months of betas, both public and private, and now Apple believes that the update is ready to go out into the wild.

Whether you’re picking up a new Apple Watch Series 7 when it goes on sale later this fall, or ready for keeping your old watch for another year, watchOS 8 is what we are all going to be using for the coming year. And it’s got a lot to offer, too.

watchOS 8 helps you stay connected, active and healthy like never before. Share your favorite memories with the enhanced Photos app. Put more fun into your texts. Find new ways to center yourself and be present. And that’s just the start.

Anyone looking to perform the Apple Watch update will need to make sure that their device is connected to a charger and have at least 50% of its battery available at the time of the update.
