CNBC is reporting that Apple has delayed the release of its new Apple Watch operating system due to delays in resolving a glitch.

The watchOS 2 release was slated for Wednesday, but a “bug in development” of the software has taken longer than Apple expected to fix, the company said.

“We will not release watchOS 2 today but will shortly,” an Apple spokesperson said Wednesday.
