With the feature list out of the way, let’s focus on the next big thing – downloading watchOS 9.2 latest update on Apple Watch. It’s super easy, but not as convenient as iPhone or iPad updates. First of all, place your Apple Watch on the magnetic charger. You also need to make sure your Apple Watch has 50% or more battery, otherwise the download won’t even start. Once that’s taken care of, go to View > General > Software Update on iPhone. Tap Download and Install when watchOS 9.2 appears.

watchOS updates tend to take a while to download and install, so don’t be surprised at the end of it. It’s best to perform these updates overnight so you wake up to a fully updated watch the next morning.
