Whats new in watchOS 9.1?

The build number of today''s update is 20S5072a, compared to the previous build 20S5063c from beta 4. Unfortunately, there are no release notes for watchOS 9.1, so the implications of the update remain unknown. Apple is likely to implement under-the-hood improvements, such as bug fixes and security improvements.

Earlier this week, watchOS 9.0.2 was released to the public with several bug fixes, including one that affected the microphone on some Apple Watch models, and another that might result in interruptions in Spotify''s audio streaming. It''s probable that today''s beta includes the same bugs as watchOS 9.0.2.

Apple has introduced new watch faces and revamped some of the previous ones with watchOS 9, which was originally released for Apple Watch Series 4 and later in September. QWERTY keyboard support includes medication reminders, more detailed workouts, and a redesigned Compass app.

Apple has improved the Sleep app with watchOS 9, by bringing more sleep information together with a fresh Medications app that assists you in collecting all of your medications and vitamins every day.
