Apple has released watchOS 8.4, an update to the watchOS 8 operating system. The update comes more than a month after the watchOS 8.2 update.
watchOS 8.4 can be downloaded for free through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to “General” -> “Software Update.” The Apple Watch needs to have at least 50% battery charge, needs to be on a charger, and needs to be in the range of the iPhone.
The watchOS 8.4 update is compatible with the Apple Watch Series 3 and later.
Apple’s release notes say watchOS 8.4 fixes a bug that could cause some Apple Watch chargers not to work as expected with the Apple Watch. A number of Apple Watch Series 7 owners have reported issues with charging after updating to the watchOS 8.3 software.
