As you can see there are no new features and the focus is on improving the overall stability of the Apple Watch itself. If you have an Apple Watch Series 6, 5, 4, 3, or SE, you can go ahead and download the update over the air.
Download watchOS 8.7 wireless
To download the watchOS 8.7 update now, over the air, start by making sure you have 50% or more battery remaining on your Apple Watch and that it should be placed on its magnetic charger. Once these two things are confirmed, follow the steps below:
- Launch it look app on your iPhone. Also, make sure your iPhone is connected to a Wi-Fi network.
- Tap General then Software update.
- When the watchOS 8.7 update appears, tap Download and install.
If you’re new to Apple Watch, it’s worth pointing out right now that watchOS updates take a while to install. Do not touch your Apple Watch during the whole download and installation process. Once the installation is complete, you can then start using the Apple Watch normally.
This may be a minor Apple Watch update, but it’s extremely important if you use your wearable on a daily basis. Also keep in mind that once you’ve updated to this version, you can’t go back to the old software, even if you want to.
This also means that if you’re testing the new beta version of watchOS 9, there’s no way to roll back to watchOS 8 unless you bring your Apple Watch to Apple itself.
