During its big "Spring Forward" Apple Watch event, Apple announced that it will release iOS 8.2 to the public today, with support for the upcoming Apple Watch and a range of bug fixes. iOS 8.2 was first seeded to developers along with the WatchKit SDK back in November, allowing them to begin preparing apps for the device.

iOS 8.2 is available today as an over-the-air download.

Apple is already working on the next update to iOS, iOS 8.3, and iOS 8.4 is also said to be in the works.

Update 11:52 AM: iOS 8.2 is now available as an over-the-air download.

Please tell me there is a way I can hide those two Apple Watch apps. No point on having them if I don't get an Apple Watch.

8.2 isn't OTA on Verizon yet. Maybe after the announcement.
Well, it seems that "today" was used rather than "now", so I guess not that unusual that it's not available just yet.

If there's no bug fixes, then Apple can jump in a hole. I'll wait.

There better be bug fixes or this update is pointless and no I am not running out to get a first gen Apple Watch, I will wait for the next gens and see where it goes.
