Apple Pulls watchOS 3.1.1 Update Following Reports of Bricked Apple Watches

Posted by · 8447 views · Translate
Apple has pulled its recent watchOS 3.1.1 software update following reports that it is bricking devices.

Some users have experienced an issue which results in a red exclamation mark being displayed on the screen following installation of the new firmware. The device instructs users to visit www.apple.com/help/watch where a force restart is suggested. Unfortunately, that doesn't work and users are only left with the option to contact Apple for assistance.

You can watch a tutorial on how to force restart your Apple Watch here. Most of the units affected appear to be Series 2 models.

Hates Apple. Hates people who are different (no "thinking different" here). So, tell me again why I should give you the time of day?

'Many rolex models from the 1980"s are worth 10,000"s of thousands . I however don't think the $1500 apple watch will be in 30 years.
