Apple Watch Bricked by WatchOS 5.1 And Sent To Apple For Repairs

Apple Watch 4

Apple has released their latest watchOS 5.1 software update just yesterday and then quickly pulled it after it seemed to brick some devices.

Now it would appear that people who have had their Apple Watch bricked have to return the device to Apple to get it repaired. Apple is apparently working on a new watchOS 5.1 update but this will apparently not fix the issue for the people with bricked devices.

A number of owners of the device posted on Twitter about the issue and you can see some of the tweets below.

Apple has released a statement to the BBC about the issue, Check out the statement below.

“Due to a small number of Apple Watch customers experiencing an issue while installing WatchOS 5.1 today, we’ve pulled back the software update as a precaution,” Apple said in a statement.

“Any customers impacted should contact AppleCare, but no action is required if the update installed successfully.

“We are working on a fix for an upcoming software update.”
