Apple releases watchOS 6.2.1 to fix FaceTime bug

After releasing iOS / iPadOS 13.4.1 yesterday, Apple today released the watchOS 6.2.1 (build 17T530) with the same purpose: to correct a problem related to FaceTime. The new version of the watch’s operating system arrives just over two weeks after the release of watchOS 6.2.

In the company’s words, version 6.2.1 resolves the bug in which devices with watchOS 6.2 could not participate in FaceTime audio connections with devices running iOS 9.3.6 and earlier or OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 and earlier.
