Apple unveils smartwatch and 2 new iPhones

California: Apple recently rolled out the watchOS 5.1 only to pull it back after device bricking concerns.

Some users who updated their Apple Watch to the newer watchOS 5.1 version reported that their watches were rendered unusable after installing the new update, The Verge reported.

Unlike the iPhone or iPad, with the Apple Watch issues, the only way to fix it is by contacting Apple for service. The latest issue appears to affect only the new Apple Watch Series 4.
