The latest software update for Apple Watch is now available, just a few days after Apple released iOS 11.2 earlier than expected. The biggest link between iDevice and Watch software updates is Apple Pay Cash, which is now available for use in watchOS 4.2
Apple Pay Cash allows US users. UU Send and receive money through iMessage, with funds from a linked credit or debit card Those who receive money get it in the form of an Apple Pay Cash Card, which they can then use to pay for things through the Apple Wallet application or transfer that money to a bank account. In Apple Watch, users can tap the new Apple Pay Cash button at the bottom of an iMessage conversation to initiate a payment to that contact.
This means that users will not need to open their iPhone to make an Apple Pay Cash payment; The transaction can be made directly from the clock. However, Apple Pay Cash in watchOS 4.2 will only work when the wearable is paired with an iPhone running iOS 11.2.
Apple released the iOS 11.2 software update last weekend in response to a series of bugs that needed fixing, including a serious date error that caused iDevices to crash repeatedly. Initially, Apple Pay Cash was not available to all users who downloaded the update immediately. Now, Apple Pay Cash seems to have been launched for the majority of iDevice users running iOS 11.2.
WatchOS 4.2 solves some other Apple Watch errors, including a heart rate application scrolling problem, a problem that forced Watch to restart each time a user asks Siri about the weather, and a problem that prevents alarms and simultaneous timers from being discarded independently. The software update also adds support for HomeKit sprinklers and faucets and better downhill snow sports tracking for third-party applications running on an Apple Watch Series 3.
To download watchOS 4.2, navigate to View> General> Software update and make sure that Apple Watch rests in its charger and has at least 50 percent battery.
