On Monday March 21st Apple held a special event
in the Town Hall at the Cupertino headquarters. As Tim noted at the end, this will actually be the last new product update ever at this location as they will soon move to their new spaceship headquarters.
Anyways let's cut to the chase, there were a few small Apple Watch updates that were made at the event. Headlines below:
Apple releases watchOS 2.2
Not a lot of new features with this update. You can now pair multiple Apple Watches with a single iPhone (who has multiple Apple Watches anyway?). The update also brings a new look to the built-in Maps app, along with some much needed under-the-hood performance improvements and bug fixes.
Here are the full release notes from Apple.com
