Alongside iOS 16.0.3, Apple is making available watchOS 9.0.2. This update for the Apple Watch fixes bugs related to Spotify, the recently-launched Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Ultra, and some other errors users were experiencing with the release of watchOS 9.
According to the Apple Watch’s release notes, watchOS 9.0.2 fixes the following bugs:
- Interruptions to streaming audio on Spotify;
- Snooze alarm notifications continue after the alarm is deleted for AssistiveTouch users;
- Incomplete syncing of Wallet and Fitness data for newly paired Apple Watch;
- Audio from the microphone was interrupted for some Apple Watch Series 8 and Ultra users.
