watchOS 2 Delays Could be Related to Last-Minute FairPlay Error

Earlier today Apple sent notes to various outlets announcing that watchOS 2 would not be released today due to a last-minute bug they found. Developer James Thomson took to Twitter to say that he might well have been the one that find the bug.

Here's the relevant parts of James' Twitter stream.

I'm glad Apple delayed the release, regardless of the source for the bug. It's much better to wait a few days for a stable product than it is to force it out on-schedule, knowing there are going to be major problems immediately. Kudos to Apple for this. And kudos to James and everyone else who responsibly submit bug reports to Apple.
