Specifically, the watchOS update addresses a bug wherein the Apple Watch would detect an irregular heartbeat but wouldn't flash an alert to the user.

The most important part of the update is a fix for an issue that prevented irregular heart rhythm notifications from working for Apple Watch users in Iceland.

Apple Watch series 6 is expected to launch later this year in September, and some notable changes are expected to happen if the rumors are to be believed. No major features have been added to the Apple Watch through the latest watchOS update.

On a related note, yesterday we covered the story of a 13-year-old in Oklahoma who, thanks to his Apple Watch, was alerted to the fact that he had an unusually high heart rate.

The next watchOS 6.2 is now being beta tested and includes in-app purchase support for the Apple Watch. The feature will not only allow users to buy use in-app purchases in their Apple smart watch but also reap universal in-app purchase bonuses from paired iPhones, iPads, Apple TVs, and Mac computers.

The company recently rolled out the 6.1.3 update for the device, which comes three weeks after the 6.1.2 update.

You can get the watchOS update by opening the See application on your iPhone, touching general, then Software update. This process would need an active internet connection to start and complete it.
