Apple pulls watchOS 3.1.1 update
Earlier this week, Apple updated iOS to version 10.2. Next to this update, the Cupertino giant also released watchOS 3.1.1 for its smartwatches. Unfortunately, it looks like this update packed a few serious bugs as well, so the company decided to stop the update and hold it back for a while until the problems are being taken care of.
According to MacRumors, "some Apple Watch Series 2 owners had their devices bricked" right after updating their wearables to watchOS 3.1.1. The same source reveals that affected devices display a red exclamation mark that instructs them to visit www.apple.com/help/watch. This page instructs Apple Watch owners to perform a forced restart of their device and that, if this does not work, the only solution left is to take the wearable to a service.
Unfortunately, it looks like the issue is serious enough, but Apple is now working on fixing this bug. We will probably see watchOS 3.1.1 returning in a matter of days - if Apple does not decide to skip this version and jump to 3.1.2 or something similar.
