Reviews of the Apple Watch have been pouring in, and a number of the review mention some performance problems, such as stuttering when loading notifications. Apple says the issues will be addressed by a software update, expected to be released before the April 24 debut of the Watch.
On Wednesday The Verge said that the Watch can sometimes stutter loading notifications, and take too long to load apps or pull data and location from a paired iPhone. In some cases third-party apps may not load at all, and the Watch can periodically become unresponsive for a few seconds.
Apple has informed The Verge that it is at least hoping to improve the speed of third-party apps ahead of the April 24 public launch, but didn’t specify an exact release date for the fixes.
Apple today lifted the embargo on Apple Watch reviews, resulting in a flood of reviews hitting the web.
Pre-orders for the Apple Watch will begin at 12:01AM Pacific Time on Friday, April 10. Try-on appointments for the Watch will also be available that same day, with the Watch officially launching on April 24.
