Apple has released watchOS 8.4.1, a minor update that likely focuses on bug fixes and security updates.

Apple's new watchOS 8.4.1 update went live on Tuesday, less than a week after watchOS 8.4 was shipped.

The new update is available as an over-the-air update. Users can also install the update manually in the Watch app on an iPhone, given that the Apple Watch is at least 50% charged and placed on a charger.

While it isn't possible to know just yet, the update may address a known issue regarding the Apple Watch Wallet feature not syncing properly.
