watchOS 3.2 and tvOS 10.2 now available to the public

watchOS and tvOS both complete Apple’s update chain for now. Apple has seeded watchOS 3.2 to Apple Watch wearables, and tvOS 10.2 to Apple TV users.

watchOS 3.2 comes along Theater Mode, which simply disables raise-to-wake action and mutes alerts when turned on. You’ll continue to receive notifications (including haptics) in the background, though. Tap the screen or press the Digital Crown to view them. Furthermore, the watchOS 3.2 update includes support for SiriKit, allowing developers to connect their apps with Siri for select use. It was limited to iOS apps only until now. That’s pretty much for the watchOS and Apple Watch in this shot.

The really-minor update is with tvOS 10.2, which doesn’t include any flashy new feature to “wow!” at; however, it improves the scrolling of tvOS, making it easier to navigate when using it. The tvOS 10.2 update gives emphasis on “new features, bug fixes, and improvements in the OS and SDK.”

In order to get watchOS 3.2 on your Apple Watch, you’ll first need to update your iPhone to iOS 10.3, and grab the update through the Apple Watch app on your iPhone. Make sure that your Apple Watch has at least 50 percent of battery charge, and is within the range of your iPhone. As far as tvOS 10.2 update is concerned, you can do it through the Settings app on your Apple TV.
