Well, if I'm not mistaken, today is the day for iOS 10 and WatchOS 3.

It is now 8:25 AM in AppleVille and so far, no sign of the updates. Any idea what time they might drop?

I've already been using the iOS 10 Beta, so I've got that, but I'm really looking forward to the WatchOS Update.

T -3 minutes, but I’ll probably have to wait extra since I’m updating via iTunes. That’s been my experience in the past.

Same here. Why am I not surprised?

Update: I can see the update on the iPhone via Software Update, but not on my mac via iTunes.

Here's my current wait time for the watch. And as soon as I took this screenshot, it went to 56 minutes.

There can’t possibly be more Apple Watch people updating their OS than iPhone people, can there? Maybe Apple is intentionally devoting most of their server bandwidth to iOS 10. It’s already fully downloaded on mine and now installing. iTunes reports “Verifying updated iPhone software…"

My iphone 6s plus showed 2 hours to download, but it took about 25 minutes or so. It just restarted and it installing now.

Once my WatchOS download settled in, it looked like the hour was goingto be pretty close, and my estimeated completion time was going to be 10:16 AM local time. Finished at 10:12, and now getting ready to load it on the watch. I'm wondering if it will hit a glitch though since I don't have my charging cord for my watch here at work. Good thing I only live 1/2 mile away, and if my wife can't bring it to me, I'll be able to bike home real quick and grab it. Cause yeah, I can't wait til lunch time to load it!!

Careful of OTA. Tried on iPhone 6S+ and went into Recovery Mode!

Well, I ended up having to bike home to get my charger. Here's the proof:

There was also a run up and down the stairs at home to retrieve the charger.

I'm now back at work and the update is loading onto my watch.

Dear Lord, they’ve wrecked the gun emoji. Now it looks like a plastic water gun. I can’t look threatening to anyone I text with that!

Guess I could always send them a photo of my face if I want to scare ‘em. :D
