Apple has released watchOS 8.1.1 software platform update. This is a small but important update.
As noted by Apple itself in a release note, the update fixes the charging problem in the new Apple Watch Series 7 smart watches. The update does not bring any additional features.
The update will be downloaded and installed automatically if several conditions are met: the automatic updates option must be activated, the Apple Watch must be on the charger, the battery level must be at least 50%, and the watch must be near the iPhone. Alternatively, users can manually install the update through the Apple Watch app on the iPhone.
