A bug has delayed the new operating system for the Apple Watch.

Apple was supposed to release watchOS 2 on Wednesday but scrapped those plans at the last minute when it discovered a bug "that is taking a bit longer to fix than we expected," an Apple spokesman said.

"We will not release watchOS 2 today, but will shortly," he added.

WatchOS 2 was supposed to introduce new features and digital Watch faces, a smarter Siri and native apps built specifically for the Apple Watch.

The launch of iOS 9, Apple's upgraded operating system for mobile devices, is unaffected and will go on as planned Wednesday morning.
