WatchOS 2 release delayed due to a bug, Apple Watch owners will have to wait more

WatchOS 2 release has been delayed due to a critical bug found during development. Apple has waited till the release day to announce this, which is odd. It must be a serious issues which made Apple delay the update at the very last minute as the announcement came just a few hours before release time.

Here is the statement given by Apple to TechCrunch and other publications:

“We have discovered a bug in development of watchOS 2 that is taking a bit longer to fix than we expected,” an Apple spokesperson told TechCrunch. “We will not release watchOS 2 today but will shortly.”

WatchOS 2 GM was released on September 9 and has been working well for yours truly so far. There is speculation that the bug is related to Fairplay errors when running third party WatchOS 2 apps. Perhaps, not using any third party WatchOS 2 apps is why I did not see any bugs.

Even though the delay announcement has come too late, it is better that Apple delay the update for Apple Watch rather than release a buggy version. As we all know, a non-working Apple Watch cannot be fixed easily and has to be replaced.
