Apple releases watchOS 5.3.2 for Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 2

    What you need to know

    • Apple has released watchOS 5.3.2 for Apple Watch Series 1 and 2
    • Both watches will receive watchOS 6 at a later date
    • watchOS 6 is available now for Apple Watch Series 3, 4, and 5

    Series 1 and 2 owners get an incremental update for now.

    While owners of the Series 3, Series 4, and Series 5 Apple Watch enjoy watchOS 6, which was released last Thursday, owners of the Series 1 and Series 2 are still waiting for the software update. Reported by Macrumors, Apple has released watchOS 5.3.2, an incremental update, for the Series 1 and 2 today.

    The update, as detailed by Apple’s support document, addresses a potential remote security vulnerabilty in the Apple Watch:

    A remote attacker may be able to cause unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution

    The Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 2 are slated to get watchOS 6, but Apple has not announced the date for when each device will receive the new software. The beta of watchOS 6.1 is already out, so Series 1 and Series 2 owners will potentially have to wait for the public release of 6.1 to get upgraded. Until then, owners should make sure to download and install today’s update.

    To find the update, users should check the dedicated Apple Watch app on their iPhone. In the app, tap on General > Software Update. In order to do the install, the Apple Watch always requires 50% battery, needs to be on the charger, and is required to be in range of the iPhone it is paired with.
