Soon after Apple released watchOS 5.1 last Tuesday it was discovered the update was bricking some Apple Watch Series 4 devices, leaving them stuck at the Apple logo.
Apple quickly pulled the update to avoid further issues. The Cupertino firm today released watchOS 5.1.1 to fix the issue.
While not all Apple Watch devices were bricked by the watchOS 5.1 update, the owners of those that were will need to contact Apple to receive a replacement device. Bricked Apple Watches will require repair by Apple, as the new update will not fix the device’s bricked status.
