    I was looking at the box for my :apple:Watch Sport and saw this... Am I the only one who thinks this doesn't really make much sense?

    Surely if you're using the latest version, there isn't a later one!

    Maybe that means the latest version of iOS 8 (most likely 8.4.X) or later e.g. iOS 9. Or just badly worded.

    It clearly means the latest version of iOS 8 as of April 24 (launch date of the :apple:Watch) which is 8.3 or later.

    Later is on there for the future since that box may be for sale (or when you resale it) when 8.4, 8.5, 9.0.... are out.

    It's just a minimum spec list. Same as when you buy lets say the sims on pc or Mac and it says it needs X to run with optimum performance but if you're running the latest you don't need to worry but if not its upgrade time

    It's basically worded so when iOS9 is released they don't need to redo all the boxes again.

    Let me translate what Apple means:

    You must have the latest version of iOS 8 installed or a later version of iOS installed, such as iOS 9, iOS 10 etc...

    That is until it gets to the point where the os stops supporting it ;)
