The public release of watchOS 9.3 includes bug fixes and under-the-hood improvements for the Apple Watch — and it's now available to everybody.

Apple Watch users can update watchOS by opening the iOS Watch app, selecting General, then Software Update, and following the onscreen prompts.

The update will also automatically install for the user if set to do so within the same app.

The Apple Watch has to be at 50% charge or greater, placed on a charger, and within the iPhone's range to initiate the update itself.

This update, like watchOS 9.2 before it, primarily focuses on bug fixes.

Released in September, watchOS 9 introduced new features to Apple's flagship wearable. Some of the new features included new workout metrics, a new medication tracker, and an improved sleep tracker.
