If you were hankering for watchOS 2 today, you might have to wait a bit.

“We have discovered a bug in development of watchOS 2 that is taking a bit longer to fix than we expected,” an Apple spokesperson was quoted as saying. “We will not release watchOS 2 today but will shortly.”

Not the best news you want to hear, but it’s still better than the operating system heading out into the wild – and onto your Apple Watch – without it being fixed.

The new operating system adds a handful of new features, but most importantly gives developers building apps the ability to directly access its sensors and stream data more efficiently between the iPhone and the watch. Other marquee features of watchOS 2 include expanded Siri support, transit directions, photo watch faces, the ability to travel through a timeline to check weather and appointments and expanded WiFi support when out of range of an iPhone.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
