watchOS 5.1.1 Now Available… It Promises Not To Brick Your Apple Watch

After last weeks incident where some Apple Watch owners had their Apple Watch bricked by watchOS 5.1, which led to Apple pulling the update, Apple has taken a lot of heat for what happened. Consequently, there has been a lot if anticipation to see how Apple was going to address this. In the last few minutes, Apple has released watchOS 5.1.1 which says this in the release notes:


There’s not much there. Thus I guess the bricking of really expensive smart watches is a bug. In any case, I am downloading and installing this as I type this. After all it’s better I rather than you brick their really expensive smart watch in the event Apple goes 0-2 here. Update to come.

Oh, by the way, bricked Apple Watches require servicing from Apple and this software update doesn’t do anything to change that. Sorry.

UPDATE: My Apple Watch is now on watchOS 5.1.1 with no issues.
