    So do we think 2.2 will get released to the masses tomorrow with the event? Been anxiously awaiting the ability to rotate Apple watches without unpairing and re-pairing. What do we think? Thanks

    I wonder if Apple will surprise us with any other accessories such as the magnetic charging dock was a surprise.

    Personally, I think it should be released alongside iOS 9.3 and OS X 10.11.4 (I think it's .4?) I also hope the the 9.2 jailbreak will come out tomorrow, but we will see!

    OH-!

    Some new accessories would be cool. I wish Apple made a different dock. The first party one they make looks like a toilet seat IMO.

    I am really surprised they never made an iphone/watch combo dock as of yet as I am still in the market for one and wixh Apple would release one already.

    I am curious to see the new bands and what 2.2 will entail as we get into the next iteration of the AW which I hope is far off enough where the first doesn't become obsolete.

    Does it have to be all Apple? You can find loads of phone/watch dock combinations online, with some of them looking quite good.

    Of course not but I have taken the short cut before on some third party Apple products and they are nowhere near the quality let alone the service you get even after return and warranties have expired.

    Just my take on it of course.

    WatchOS will launch coincided with iOS 9.3. Most likely release next week after Easter. iOS 9.3, WatchOS 2.2 will receive their GM builds today.

    Looks like iOS 9.3 is available today after all. Hopefully that means that Watch OS 2.2 will also be available today. Sad that there hasnt been any mention of its existence in the presentation thus far.

    Doesn't look like 2.2 has been released. Very bummed on that, and no mention of it at all in the presentation. Anyone know anything on it?

    Just checked and it said 2.1 software is up to date. My guess is WWDC is when we might see 2.2.

    I highly doubt that. I'm not seeing 9.3 on my phone yet, but its coming today. Patience...

    9.3 is now downloading to my phone. If I had to guess, 2.2 will be today as well.

    It would be odd to make a point of 9.3 availability in the presentation and skip right over WatchOS unless it's not ready.

    I had checked a few times since the end of the event and iOS 9.3 had not been available. Just checked and it is available! Downloading right now but then I'll have to check my watch. If it wasn't announced though I kinda doubt it'll be out today.

    iOS 9.3 is now available. Watch OS 2.2 Will also be available today since it requires iOS 9.3

    Odd that they did not so much as even mention that in the presentation.

    They were on a very tight timeline. To mention it would have meant spending 1-2 minutes, minimum, discussing it, even a little. They didn't have that time.

    They did keep the presentation short and sweet with very little time on the Watch. Makes sense with a new iPhone and iPad. That iPad looks very sick. I was hoping for a quick mention of new watch faces but I am starting to believe that we may never see those... :( Yes, I hope I am wrong.

    You're wrong! ;)

    Apple is hiring/just hired software engineers for ... watch faces! WatchOS 3!
