Apple Has Released watchOS 9.1 With Improved Battery Life And Apple Music Upgrades

Apple has just released watchOS 9.1 for the Apple Watch Series 4 and later devices. Continue reading to learn more.

Apple has begun to distribute watchOS 9.1 for the Apple Watch. The most recent update adds a few new features, such as longer battery life during some workouts and support for downloading songs from Apple Music.

In terms of battery life enhancements, the watchOS 9.1 release notes indicate that battery usage has been optimized for outdoor activities such as walking, running, and hiking. Users of the Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch SE 2nd generation, and Apple Watch Ultra can now reduce the frequency of GPS and heart rate monitoring. When not charging, Apple Watch owners can download songs from Apple Music via Wi-Fi or cellular. This is extremely convenient because users can now download music on their smartwatches while on the go.

Aside from improving existing features and adding new ones, watchOS 9.1 fixes several bugs and issues, such as the chance of rain estimate in the weather app not matching that on the iPhone, hourly weather complications labeling times as AM instead of PM, time duration displayed in Strength Training mode not increasing, and VoiceOver not announcing the name before reading the notification when multiple notifications are received.

However, the Race Route feature, which Apple announced at the WWDC 2022 keynote in June of this year, has yet to be implemented. For those who are unfamiliar, it allows you to race against your previous or best result and provides real-time updates.

watchOS 9.1 is now available for Apple Watch 4 and later users. You can update your Apple Watch by going to the Settings app on the watch, selecting General, and then selecting the Software Update option.
