Update Problems with WatchOS: When there's no internet connection
Ever attempt to update your WatchOS, only to be greeted with the message: "WatchOS update could not be verified because there is no internet connection"? Don't panic! Such perplexing predicaments can crop up. Here's how to tackle this update issue.
Before diving into the solutions, it's essential to remember that these tips are general fixes for common update issues. If problems persist, it wouldn’t hurt to give Apple Support a ring.
Step 1: Check your internet connection
Might sound a tad bit basic, yet it is remarkably crucial. Ensure you are connected to your home WiFi rather than just your mobile network. Apple recommends that you should always be connected to a stable and speedy WiFi network for updates.
Step 2: Reboot
There's something rather magical about the good old fashioned technique of rebooting. Switch off your Apple Watch and flick it back on after a few seconds, then take another stab at installing the update.
Step 3: Check your storage space
Your Apple Watch needs enough storage space to accommodate an update. If your watch is near capacity, consider removing some applications or music to make a bit of elbow room for the update.
If you continue to struggle with updating your Apple Watch, as mentioned above it's wise to contact Apple Support. Be sure to recount the steps you've taken to remedy the problem to assist the support staff in determining further actions.
