Apple pulls watchOS 5.1 updates after bricking reports

Apple released watchOS 5.1 on Tuesday alongside a major software update for iOS, but it’s already been pulled.

The decision came following a handful of reports of bricked Apple Watches on Twitter and reddit, with users reporting that their devices were stuck on the Apple logo while booting up.

Apple confirmed the issue, and said that it’s working on a fix in a statement provided to CNET.

“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,” the statement reads.

“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.”

watchOS 5.1 brought updates to emoji, refreshed watch faces, support for group FaceTime audio, as well as some minor bug fixes. Looks like Apple Watch owners will have to hold on for just a little while longer.
