Along with the release of iOS 16.1 RC (Release Candidate) for developers and beta users on Tuesday, Apple also released watchOS 9.1 RC. The update to the Apple Watch operating system adds new features, and it also enables the download of Apple Music songs over Wi-Fi or cellular when the Apple Watch is off the charger.
Apple Music downloads on Apple Watch
One of the limitations of the Apple Watch is that users had to put the device on the charger to sync Apple Music songs from the iPhone. Even after the introduction of the Apple Watch Series 3, which enabled streaming of the entire Apple Music catalog over Wi-Fi or cellular, there was still no way to download songs when the Apple Watch was unplugged.
