WatchOS 6 has been available to users for some time now, and owners of Apple Watch Series 4 can upgrade to the new system at any time. There is one exception, however: if the watch in question is connected to an iPhone that is not compatible with iOS 13 (such as 5s, 6, and 6 Plus), you will not be able to update to the latest version of watchOS.
Yes, strange and shows that the dependence of the watch on the smartphone is even greater than most users would like. But at least Apple has not forgotten these cases: the company has just released a new version of watchOS 5.3.2 (build 16U611) just for Apple Watches Series 4 which, because of the iPhones to which they are connected, cannot jump to the new version of the system.
For those who are following, Ma had already released watchOS 5.3.2 last month at the time, however, the version of the system was exclusive to Apple Watches Series 1, 2 and 3. The update for Series 4 brings the same changes as another update, which basically consists of security enhancements; The new version fixes a bug that could be used by remote attackers and could lead to application termination or arbitrary code execution.
The update, as usual, can be applied through the Watch app on your iPhone.
