    Apple today released a new software update for the Apple Watch, upgrading watchOS 2 to version 2.2.1. The update comes nearly two months after the public release of watchOS 2.2, a major update to the watchOS 2 operating system that introduced multi-watch support for iPhone, Maps improvements, and other features. In testing since April 6, Apple seeded two betas of watchOS 2.2.1 to developers prior to releasing it to the public.
    The 2.2.1 update can be downloaded through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General –-> Software Update. To install the update, the Apple Watch must have 50 percent battery, it must be placed on the charger, and it must be in range of the iPhone.

    watchOS 2.2.1 is a minor update, and during the beta testing period, no outward-facing changes or obvious bug fixes were discovered. According to Apple's release notes, watchOS 2.2.1 fixes the following problems:

    Since releasing watchOS 2 in September of 2015, Apple has provided Apple Watch owners with four updates in total, including watchOS 2.0.1, watchOS 2.1, watchOS 2.2, and today's watchOS 2.2.1 update.
