In addition to iOS 16, Apple released watchOS 9. To install the update on your smartwatch, you must first download iOS 16 on your iPhone. You can do this by opening the Settings app, then tapping General, followed by Software, and finally Update. If you own an Apple Watch Series 3, you won’t get access to the software as Apple is dropping support for its wearable in 2017. It’s also worth noting that not every feature of watchOS 9 will be available on every Apple Watch and in every region.
As with previous updates, fitness is a key focus of watchOS 9. You’ll now see your heart rate zones as you exercise and review your sleep patterns. There’s also support for multisport workouts and a way to monitor your personal bests. In addition, you can set up the software to remind you to take your medication. Other new features include a redesigned Siri interface, Quick Actions, and a handful of new watch faces.
