Apple recently released watchOS 9.5, the fifth significant update to its operating system, watchOS 9. watchOS 9.5 arrives more than a month after watchOS 9.4.
watchOS 9.5 may be downloaded for free through the iPhone’s Apple Watch app. Just open it and navigate to General > Software Update. To install the updated software, the Apple Watch must be at least 50% charged. Also, it’s connected to a charger, and within range of your iPhone.
The watchOS 9.5 update offers unspecified bug fixes as well as the Pride Celebration watch face to match the 2023 Pride band.
We anticipate that watchOS 9.5 will be one of the final upgrades to watchOS 9 before Apple shifts its focus to watchOS 10, the new version of watchOS that will be revealed at WWDC in June.
