"We have discovered a bug in development of watchOS 2 that is taking a bit longer to fix than we expected," an Apple spokesperson told TechCrunch. "We will not release watchOS 2 today but will shortly."
What does "shortly" mean? It likely means next week, but before Friday. On Friday the Apple iPhone 6S goes on sale and ships.
Update 09/21: Apple WatchOS 2 released.
The new OS X El Capitan will be released on September 30. It is unusual that Apple delays a release on the day it is scheduled to go live. Apple is releasing new OS builds to Apple developers on a continuous basis ahead of a public release.
Looks like something has gone very wrong at the end of the development cycle for the WatchOS 2.
The new Apple WatchOS adds the crucial native app support. This allows app developers access the sensors on the Apple Watch and work without the iPhone. There are new Watch faces and the new Time-Lapse watch face that shows time-lapse videos shot over 24 hours in iconic locations around the world.
Apple also allows users to customize Watch faces with compilations to display the state apps at all times. Another cool new feature is Time Travel. With Time Travel, users can turn the Digital Crown to see what’s happening and what’s already happened yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Users can see what the weather will be like for a lunch date in a few hours or checking the schedule for tomorrow.
The night stand feature coming in WatchOS 2 turns the Apple Watch into a neat little alarm clock.
Below is the updated Apple Fall Release schedule featuring all upcoming hardware and software releases. There is now of course a question mark for the Apple WatchOS 2 release. Apple will release it likely between September 22 and September 24.
