Apple delays launch of watchOS 2 after discovering bug

Apple is postponing the release of watchOS 2, the first major update to the Apple Watch's operating system, after discovering an unspecified bug in the software. Today's launch of iOS 9 will proceed as planned, but Apple Watch owners will need to wait a bit longer for native third-party apps and other new features included with watchOS 2. An Apple spokesperson confirmed the delay in a statement to The Verge, saying "We have discovered a bug in development of watchOS 2 that is taking a bit longer to fix than we expected. We will not release watchOS 2 today but will shortly." We don't yet know the nature of the bug that's pushed back Apple's plans, but will update this story if the company shares more details.
