watchOS 8.4 Lands With Apple Watch Charger Bug Fix

January 26, 2022

Apple Watch users can now update their device to watchOS 8.4.

The update can be downloaded now through the companion Watch app on your iPhone by heading to General > Software Update in the My Watch portion of the app. You can also go to Settings > General > Software Update on an Apple Watch

Your watch needs to have more than 50 percent power and connected to a charger. Like most Apple Watch updates, it could take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to complete, so be patient.

It’s compatible with the Apple Watch Series 3 and later.

The update fixes an issue that causes problems with third-party chargers and offers other bug fixes and improvements.
