Apple unveiled its Watch Series 3 with built-in cellular support and watchOS 4 earlier last month within a week of which the company released the watchOS 4 to all of its smartwatches with various improvements and extra features. A week after seeding the developer beta of watchOS 4.1 with Apple Music steaming and a new Radio app, Apple has started rolling out watchOS 4.0.1 to its Watch Series 3 devices with cellular support and specifically contains a fix the recently launched smartwatch.
The update comes just two weeks after the initial release of watchOS 4 and comes to Apple Watch Series 3 users who were facing an issue regarding the inability to connect to an LTE network. The issue resulted in the watch to attempt to connect to unauthenticated public WiFi networks which often put the wearable device at risk.
watchOS 4.0.1 fixes issues that in rare cases were causing Apple Watch to join unauthenticated (captive) Wi-Fi networks, such as those found in public places like coffee shops and hotels, which direct the user to a webpage before the network can be accessed.
Apple is currently in works with its beta testing of the watchOS 4.1 which is slated for a release later this year and is supposed to bring additional features to the current line of Apple Watches.
