Apple Watch Series 3 is NOT getting more updates! Good news for iPad users

Apple Watch Series 3 is excluded from the watchOS 9 list of supported devices. However, the iPadOS 16 support list includes older models.

Apple Watch Series 3 is TOO dead! At the WWDC 2022 Keynote address, Apple released a series of software updates for all the devices in its ecosystem. Sadly, they dropped support for some old but popular devices. iOS 16 has surprisingly dropped support for the iPhone 7 generation along with the iPhone 6S and iPhone SE 1st Gen, as well as the iPod Touch. Outside of the iOS ecosystem, the Apple Watch Series 3 is also exempt from the latest software updates. The Watch Series 3 sold until recently as Apple’s entry-level smartwatch.

In its device support list, Apple states that “watchOS 9 will be available this fall as a free software update for Apple Watch Series 4 and later paired with iPhone 8 or later and iPhone SE (2nd generation) or later, running iOS 16. “This excludes Apple Watch Series 3 from the list. WatchOS 9 is a slight update over watchOS 8, with only a few visual changes and some additional health features.
