Apple has announced watchOS 6 with a range of new features. While the developer beta is already available for download, the new software update will be released for public in the fall along with iOS 13 and other operating systems. watchOS 6 brings new features such as new watch faces, enhanced Siri, on-device App Store, Activity Trends, Cycle Tracking and Hearing Health.
Last year Apple introduced watchOS 5 and dropped support for the original Apple Watch aka Apple Watch Series 0. So is Apple going to drop support for any other model of Apple Watch this year?
Well the good news is the watchOS 6 software update will support all models of Apple Watch that are able to run watchOS 5. This includes all models ever released excluding of course the original Apple Watch.
Here’s a list of Apple Watch models that will be supported by watchOS 6.
- Apple Watch Series 4
- Apple Watch Series 3
- Apple Watch Series 2
- Apple Watch Series 1
Even though all of the models mentioned above will be able to run watchOS 6, not every Apple Watch will get access to all the new features that have been introduced in this year’s software update.
