Apple Watch users can download and install WatchOS 4.2 via the Settings section on their paired iPhone. You must use the paired iPhone to update watchOS system software.

Apple TV users can download and update to the latest version of tvOS via the Settings app on their Apple TV.

Meanwhile, iOS 11.2 update was also released recently and includes important bug fixes, and should be installed by all iPhone and iPad users running a prior iOS 11 version.

For Mac users, macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 appears to remain in beta development, though a security update was recently released to address a rather problematic security bug impacting High Sierra.
