On Monday, Apple released beta versions of iOS 9.3 and watchOS 2.2, which together will fix an issue with the Apple Watch that is so irrelevant that you likely don’t even know that it exists.
This ‘issue,’ which really is just a minor inconvenience for the extremely privileged, is that a single iPhone is only able to pair with one Apple Watch. Yes, apparently the need to have multiple Apple Watches is so great, or at least Apple believes that it is, that the company is enabling iPhones to connect to more than one Apple Watch at a time.
Support for multiple Apple Watches will officially become available to consumers with the final release of iOS 9.3 and watchOS 2.2, both of which are necessary to connect more than one Apple Watch to the same iPhone. Then, people with hundreds or possibly even thousands of dollars to spend on high-end smart watches will finally get to live the dream of wearing an Apple Watch on each wrist. The very most affluent people may even chose to wear four Apple Watches on their body, one around each wrist as well as one around each ankle.
