    I see no indication on my iPhone, or my wife's iPhone, that OS3 is available today. When I check for it, I get the message that my software is up-t0-date at System 2.2.2.

    They certainly didn't make that clear. There are people who already have it. Would it be made available for different areas at different times?

    IIRC everything comes out at the same time. Other people may be running a beta I suppose.

    From memory the iPad and iPhone updates get battered early doors so probably worth leaving until bedtime if in the UK

    I think some folks who ran the beta were able to get the AW update early.

    That is what happened with my iPhone, I ran the beta and was able to update to iOS 10 GM last week.

    Is the upload for OS 3 available to anyone? I don't have it yet, and it was supposed to be up at 10 AM Cupertino time.

    Both iOS 10 and wOS 3 are available. Try restarting the devices and make sure you have iOS 10 installed.

    I couldn't see the Update, then I deleted the beta profile on my watch and restarted it, then the Update came up :)

    You have to have iOS 10.0.1 installed before you can "see" the update for WatchOS 3.

    If I had a beta profile for my watch, I would definitely try that.

    Try
    Try restarting the Watch (if you haven't done that yet). I had to do that to get it to recognize some other app last week.

    It's taking forever. I'm hoping it does not rely on WiFi because I'm leaving the office in 15 minutes. I'll leave the watch plugged in the laptop as I take it home.

    Available and so far going as well as the iOS 10 update for me! Update nearly finished on the watch and then hung so have had to do a reset. Second attempt...

    I'm getting that too. Actually, initially I got 3 hours, then a minute later, I got 2 hours . . .

    I try not to be the first to install iOS updates, but I wanted to play and use watchOS 3 for a good couple days to see if it's fast enough for me. My pre-order AW2 is arriving on Friday. I know I have a couple of weeks to return AW2, but I'm also coordinating the sale of my AW0. Of course, he could change his mind about buying as I could change my mind about selling the AW0, so it would be good to resolve this as fast as possible. :)

    Update: only 45 minutes . . .

    Update2: 15 minutes . . .

    Potentially unrelated question...

    If I delete my beta profile will I still need to update? I'm on 10.0.1

    Edit: wrong thread lol

    After spending most of the day attempting to download 10.0 (I was one of the lucky ones where the initial download bricked my 6s Plus forcing me to 'revert' to 9.5.3 before updating to 10.0.1 - all via iTunes and with no back-up of my phone anywhere - I live dangerously...), I'm now sitting at 38 minutes remaining for watchOS 3. You'd think after spending nearly 7 hours on just getting iOS 10 going, 38 minutes would be nothing! But, that ain't the case!

    UPDATE: 17 minutes!

    UPDATE #2: 8 minutues! Single digits, baby!

    UPDATE #3: 28 seconds!!!!!!!!!

    UPDATE #4: PREPARING!!!!!!

    UPDATE #5: Verifying!!!!!!!

    UPDATE #6: INSTALLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes, I am down to 10 minutes (it's taken almost 1.5 hours so far) Come on OS3... Come on OS3...

    I just hope they give us a way to delete all messages this time. I hate having to go through every single message and delete it.... how can they not have had a delete all option??? My pager from the mid 90s had that, lol
