Apple Releases watchOS 6.0.1 With Bug Fixes

Apple today released watchOS 6.0.1, the first update to the watchOS 6 operating system that was released on September 19.

watchOS 6.0.1 can be downloaded for free through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General -> Software Update. To install the new software, the ‌Apple Watch‌ needs to have over 50 percent battery, it needs to be placed on a charger, and it needs to be in range of the ‌iPhone‌.


Today’s update is minor in scale, addressing a bug with the Mickey and Minnie Mouse watch faces, fixing a calendar complications bug, and addressing an issue that could cause a loss of display calibration data. From Apple’s release notes:
watchOS 6.0.1 optimizes performance, provides security updates, and contains improvements and bug fixes, including:
- Resolves an issue where the Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse watch face does not speak time
- Addresses an issue where the calendar complication may not display events
- Fixes a bug that could result in a loss of display calibration data

6.0.1 just tried to auto install on my watch, first time I have ever seen that happen so quickly. Will have to wait to get home with a charger to install though.

Does it fix the issue where when Theater Mode is enabled, tapping on the display does not turn on the display even when clicking the side button and Digital Crown?
Multiple times the display refuses to turn on until I wait a few seconds and try again.

I installed watchOS 6.0.1 directly on my Watch, without my phone involved (well, actually, it asked me to accept the new ToS on my iPhone). Went by pretty quickly, seems to work fine.
