In a groundbreaking move, Apple has just dropped a game-changing update to its watchOS ecosystem – the highly anticipated watchOS 10.1. This release follows hot on the heels of the recent watchOS 10.0.2, a minor update primarily focused on ironing out pesky bugs.
Getting your hands on this cutting-edge software is a breeze. Simply head over to the Apple Watch app on your trusty iPhone, running iOS 17 or later. Navigate to General -> Software Update, and you’re on your way. Just ensure your Apple Watch boasts a minimum of 50 percent battery and is comfortably seated on its charger.
One of the standout features of watchOS 10.1 is the revolutionary NameDrop. This innovation allows seamless contact exchange between Apple Watch and other Apple devices. With a mere tap, you can effortlessly share contact information, bringing a new level of convenience to your connections.
Exclusive to the Apple Watch Series 9 and the formidable Apple Watch Ultra 2, Double Tap promises a whole new level of interaction. Activated by a swift double tap of your index finger and thumb, this gesture empowers you to swiftly answer calls, conclude conversations, halt alarms, and much more.
Apple, true to form, has also addressed a host of pesky bugs in this update. These include:
- Rectifying an issue causing city sync hiccups in the Weather app.
- Fixing an elevation glitch experienced by some users.
- Introducing My Card as a complication, ensuring swift access to NameDrop.
