It seems the trend this year for Apple to release day one patches for its new hardware. iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models received a day one patch in the form of iOS 16.0.1. In the same manner, Apple Watch Ultra is receiving a day one patch with watchOS 9.0.1, while other Apple Watch models will remain on watchOS 9, until watchOS 9.1 ships next month.
watchOS 9.0.1 fixes just one issue, as per Apple’s official release notes:
