Apple says it's delaying the release of new Apple Watch software after finding a computer bug.

WatchOS 2 was scheduled to go public to customers on Wednesday. But on Wednesday morning, the company announced the update's delay to news reporters.

In a statement, the company said: "We have discovered a bug in development of WatchOS 2 that is taking a bit longer to fix than we expected. We will not release WatchOS 2 today but will shortly."

Apple (AAPL) did not detail the computer flaw.

The updated Apple Watch software will add new watch faces, let users reply to emails, and allow for more powerful apps and additional customization. It's also expected to make the machine run faster.
