Apple pulls down Watch update that bricked Series 2 devices

Share

Apple has now pulled the watchOS 3.1.1 update after some users have reported that their Series 2 Apple Watch models are being bricked after the update.

If you haven't yet updated your Watch to watchOS 3.1.2, it might be wise to hold off until more is known about this issue. Those who got their Apple Watches bricked were instructed to the Apple Watch help section on their website, via a red exclamation point on their devices. While the error directs users to the Apple Support page, they'll find the only real solution is to either visit an Apple Store and have them send the bricked watch to Apple for repairs or go online and start the process from home.

The watchOS 3.1.1 update brings more than 100 new emojis including shrug, facepalm, and fingers crossed.

Apple has not given an official reply on the reason or generation of devices that were bricked because of 3.1.1 update. Since then Apple has stopped the roll out of the update, meaning if you hadn't updated yet you can not anymore until Apple issues another update. If that doesn't help, Apple's remedy is to send the device in for fix. However, after complaints from device bricking, Apple has since pulled the update.

It appears owners of the Apple Watch Series 2 have been hit the hardest by the problem. If that doesn't work, the Apple Watch will need to be serviced.

In a new development, Apple has rolled back the watchOS 3.1.1 update. But the users hope Apple will likely make the update available in the near future as soon as possible after resolving the bug of bricking of the multitude of devices.
