Download watchOS 8 Over the Air

In order to grab the latest watchOS 8 update, first you have to make sure that your iPhone is updated to iOS 15. If it isn't, then go ahead and update it first then come back here in a few minutes.

Once the iPhone is updated, start things off by placing your Apple Watch on its magnetic charger. Your battery life should be 50% or more in order to install the update. So, let both the iPhone and Apple Watch charge beyond 50% first.

Make sure you are connected to Wi-Fi as well. Once you are done with that, follow the steps exactly as they are written below:

  • Launch the Watch app on the iPhone.
  • Tap on General then tap on Software Update.
  • Wait for this page to refresh. When the watchOS 8 update shows up, tap on the Download and Install button underneath.

The update will take quite a while to download and install so don't be alarmed at anything at all. It's extremely important that you leave your Apple Watch on charge at all times and do not play around with it during the installation.

Once the installation is complete, and it will take a while, you will hear a ding sound from your Apple Watch. After that you can start using your Apple Watch as you normally do.
