I updated my series 2 watch, no bricked BUT I noticed battery life decreased drastically and activity app acting very weird (like sensors malfunction), contacted Apple, they said I should send it to them so they will restore it to watchOS 3.1, but the whole process can take up to 7 working days.... did anyone else faced same problem with the new update?
I have an Apple watch, didn't happen to mine but if it did I would call up Apple support to sort it out as I live 2 hours from the nearest store, not the end of the world but a MASSIVE inconvenience. & lets not forget that iPhones, iPads & iPods have all had a bricking update in the past & if my memory serves me right, didn't Apple replace the bricked products for free if it was caused by their software, warranty or not?
Still does not excuse the mistake has happened!
Inexcusable. Thank god I didn't update, there's no Apple store in my country or in this whole region even...
Anonymous, 14 Dec 2016Apple, the bricking expert back at it again. Im telling you, they are doing this on purpose so... moreSince it affects Series 2 watches, and even the first one sold is going to still be under warranty, I don't see why anybody would pay anything.
Having said that, this should be a slap to Apple. Apple has always been bragging about their ability to control both hardware and software, yet they cannot even push a 0.0.1 patch properly.
Apple, the bricking expert back at it again. Im telling you, they are doing this on purpose so that the customer spend more money repairing their device or buying a new apple watch.
It must be the user's fault. They did not wear it correctly.
And those holes too. It's the user's fault for having trypophobia.
Todays a lot of trustworthy manufacturer loses there credibility of quality product. Too expensive that have a problems in output. I will try the cheaper price, after all every year i could buy due to modernization and fashion of gadgets.
Well as the Iwatch was thick as a brick anyway, bricking is only natural... /S
