watchOS 6 brings direct OTA update to the Apple Watch

Apple released the Developer Beta 2 for all its Operating Systems, the watchOS 6, iOS 13, iPadOS, tvOS and macOS Catalina.

This feature was added to the first beta of the watchOS 6. You could access it by going to Settings > General > Software Update. But now after the release of beta 2, it is functional.

But according to the tweet by Jeremy Horwitz, users still need to accept the Terms and Conditions on their iPhone in order to update their watch. But it seems to be an temporary step which Apple might remove in the future updates.

This is a step towards making the Apple Watch independent of the iPhone. watchOS 6 already brings in its standalone App Store, and with a few more updates the Watch will be more usable without your iPhone.
