Apple Watch Series 3

watchOS 8.7 just arrived for everyone who wants to install the new update on their Apple Watch. if you have a Series 3 onwards, you will be able to benefit from the novelties of this new operating system, which although it does not bring anything that could be a revolution, it does bring improvements in security, privacy, performance and error correction. That seems little but it is essential for the devices to work like a charm. By the way, take advantage if your Apple Watch is a Series 3, because it is the last update it will receive.

Apple has released various versions of different operating systems, for different devices. Among them, we have that the Apple Watch can benefit from the latest update that has been released of watchOS being 8.7. In fact, right now I'm installing this new version on my watch. The novelties that it brings are not to launch an announcement on the front page, it is the "typical" bug fixes and performance improvements, which are, after all, the ones that make everything flow and go like silk. That is why it is interesting to always update.

Keep in mind that having the latest versions makes the problems less. Of course, you must see if the new version is compatible with your device and in this case, except for the first two Apple Watch models, all are compatible. But of course, next fall when watchOS 9 is released, the Series 3 will not be able to update. That's why, This 8.7 update will be, in principle, the last one that this specific model receives. That makes this update special. We say in principle, because unless there are errors in this one that has just been released, none will be released until the fall.

So if you own an Apple Watch and especially a Series 3, update as soon as possible to benefit from improvements in security above all.
