Apple has pulled back the watchOS 3.1.1 update following reports of bricking issues witnessed on some Series 2 Apple Watch models. The watchOS 3.1.1 update was pushed early this week, but the update was pulled down immediately after several user reports on the bricking issues surfaced online.

Users, who installed the update, said the watch displays an exclamation mark in a circle, along with a URL to Apple support. The URL further directs users to a support page that instructs them to perform a force-restart by pressing and holding the watch’s side button and Digital Crown at the same time, until the Apple logo appears. It also states that if a restart does not work, one will have to restore the device or will need to be taken in for service.

 

The update is no longer available now, and Apple didn’t specify why the update failed in the first place. However, the update is speculated to be rolled out again once Apple fixes the bug. Until then, affected customers can visit Apple retail stores or customers support page to report the issue.
