watchOS 5.0.1 available today with Activity fixes and improvements

watchOS 5.0 was released last week with many new features like Activity competitions, Walkie-Talkie, improvements to Siri face, new Watch faces and more. Shortly after it’s released Apple published a support article detailing that some users may lose their Activity Stickers after updating, or stand credit would be glitchy.

 

The release will be available today Over-The-Air (OTA) for the Apple Watch (Series 1, fall 2016) and later through the Watch app. Make sure you’ve updated to iOS 12 on your paired iPhone 5s or later.

 

This update contains improvements and bug fixes, including:

  • Fixes an issue that caused a small number of users to see an increase in exercise minutes
  • Addresses an issue that caused some users to not receive Stand credit in the afternoon
  • Fixes an issue that could prevent Apple Watch from charging
