Last updated on May 19th, 2020 at 08:35 amAlongside iOS 13.4.1, Apple has also rolled out watchOS 6.2.1 with a similar fix for a FaceTime bug. iOS 13.4 included a bug that was preventing iPhone owners from engaging in FaceTime calls with other iPhone or Mac owners that were running older software versions. The same goes for watchOS 6.2, the only difference is that the Apple Watch can only join audio FaceTime calls.
So, if you have contacts with devices still running iOS 9.3.6 or earlier and Mac’s with macOS El Capitan 10.11.6 and older and want to call them via FaceTime from your Apple Watch, you’ll need to upgrade to watchOS 6.2.1. The update log doesn’t mention any other changers although it speaks about “improvements and bug fixes”, but most likely this is the standard description that wasn’t updated before the release.
How To Download watchOS 6.2.1
