Apple has pulled the watchOS 5.1 update after reports of bricked devices surfaced. The system upgrade for Apple’s smartwatch was initially released alongside iOS 12.1 on Tuesday. Shortly thereafter, users began to report that their watches were stuck on the loading screen. Apple later pulled the update. “Due to a small number of Apple Watch customers experiencing an issue while installing watchOS 5.1 today, we’ve pulled back the software update as a precaution,” said Apple in a statement. “Any customers impacted should contact AppleCare, but no action is required if the update installed successfully. We are working on a fix for an upcoming software update.” Apple didn’t indicate how many devices were impacted, nor how long it will be before the revised update is available. WatchOS 5.1 adds new emoji, Group FaceTime audio, and new watch faces.
