Apple Watch iOS Update Creates Bricking
The series 4 Apple Watches have been praised as a massive upgrade from the previous models. One of the new features was credited for helping a man after he fell from pain. With so many different functions, Apple wants to maintain the watch’s progress.
The 5.1 Update was pushed out last night to the public for download. The forums on Reddit and Twitter were flooded with responses to the update. Many were complaining that their device had “bricked”. Bricking is when a device becomes useless other than being a paperweight or brick.
Because so many users were affected by a massive error, Apple quickly pulled the update from the public. No announcement has been made when it will be available again or what was the root of the problem.
