Apple Watch gets watch OS 5.1.1 update to fix bricking issue in Apple Watches

Apple releases a new update for watchOS. The new update will fix the bricking issues in Apple Watch, which had made the device unusable after users had tried to install the previous update.

According to reports from Verge, the new watchOS 5.1.1 will be coming with over 70 new emojis that were released with iOS 12.1. Other features will include new full-screen colour watch-faces and support for group FaceTime audio for up to 32 people.

The previous watchOS 5.1 update that was out last week had been pulled down quickly after there were reports that the update was causing problems in the Apple Watch during the update installation.

"Apple Watch owners can rest assured that today's update is specifically built not to brick their devices," the report added. 

As the smartwatch cant be plugged into the computer, the user that were affected with this problem had no other option other than calling the Apple support and waiting for the company to replace their watch.

The issue, however, seems limited to the brand new Apple Watch Series 4 devices. 

Not too long ago, a bug was found in the Apple Watch Series 4 that was crashing the device and was getting stuck on on re-boot loops.

Apple launched the next generation of Apple Watch in September alongside iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR at an event in California with improved health feature an edge-to-edge display with smaller bezels. 

The GPS+Cellular variant of the watch starts from Rs 49,900 and GPS-only model costs around Rs 40,900 in India.
