AppAdvice has just learned that there will be a delay in the release of watchOS 2. This will obviously affect the updates expected today, Sept. 16, for many apps that were set to release new features based on the Apple Watch update. Apparently Apple has pulled back the much-anticipated release of watchOS 2 for now. Check out what AppAdvice’s Jeff Byrnes wrote about the announcement from Apple.
