The latest version of watchOS has gone live today, with the promise of security and performance improvements across the board.

watchOS 6.0.1 Released Today

One of the things that the update has fixed is Mickey and Minnie Mouse watch faces’ inability to speak in watchOS 6. It’s still unclear whether the 6.0.1 version has solved battery life problems some Apple Watch users are experiencing.

The summary of the changelog of watchOS 6.0.1 is summarized below:

  • Fixed a bug that could affect display calibration data.
  • Fixed an issue where the Calendar may not show events correctly.
  • Resolved the Minnie and Mickey Mouse speaking issue.

You can push the watchOS 6.0.1 update by going into the ‘Settings’ section of your Apple Watch or through the iPhone. Make sure that both devices are plugged in and that you have a stable internet connection.

Apple has watchOS 6.1 in beta, but as far as a release date is concerned there’s no definite data yet.
