Apple releases watchOS 2.0.1 with fixes for battery life, app installs, calendar syncing

Apple Watch owners have a new update available that will fix a number of bugs with the device, including various issues that could affect the battery life and performance of the first-generation wearable.




watchOS 2.0.1 is now available to download via the official Apple Watch app on iPhone. It weighs in at 62.8 megabytes.

Apple's new watchOS update features support for the latest emoji characters also found in iOS 9.1 and OS X 10.11.1. They include unicorn, taco, burrito, and middle finger emoji characters.

Apple also noted that the update includes performance improvements and bug fixes. Among the changes found in the update are:

  • A fix for an issue that could cause software updates to stall
  • Fixes for issues that were impacting battery performance
  • A resolution for an issue that could prevent a managed iPhone from syncing iOS Calendar events to Apple Watch


Notably, unlike iOS 9.1 or OS X 10.11.1, there were no pre-release betas of watchOS 2.0.1 issued to developers.
