On Monday, Apple released watchOS 6.2.5, making this the 8th update for watchOS 6. It could also be one of the last updates as watchOS 7 is supposed to be announced at WWDC in June 2020.
Its newest feature is that the ECG app on Apple Watch Series 4 and later are now available in Saudi Arabia. The update also includes the usual bug fixes (features, not bugs) and improvements. Included in the update are new faces to show off your Pride to celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride month, and on their website Apple has released new pride bands.
Some users have reported that the new pride faces are not showing up on their apple watch. According to Apple support, a simple “restart your iPhone and Apple Watch after the update.” might resolve the issue. Unfortunately, it did not fix it for me.
Finally, Apple has also released an update for a parallel watchOS 5.3.7, for old iPhones that are unable to run iOS 13.
To update your watch, it must be sitting on a charger or above 50% battery life remaining.
- On your watch, go to Settings > General > Software Update.
- On your phone, make sure your watch is unlocked, open the Watch App, Under “My watch” tap General > Software Update.
