Apple has pulled an update for its smartwatches after some owners complained the software had caused their devices to stop working.

The problem appears to have baffled the firm's repair staff, and there appears to be no way at present for owners to restore the products themselves.

Several have said they have been told they need to send in the devices for a fix.

Apple said it intended to release a revised update soon.

Those affected reported that their watches had become stuck in a state showing the Apple logo - but nothing else - on their screens.


One owner of a newly released Series 4 model said he had been told it would take the firm's repair staff up to a week to decide whether his device needed to be repaired or replaced. Frozen Apple Watches must be returned

Just bought a new apple watch series 4 a week ago and asked Romanian provider iStyle about this and they suggested to skip the last update.
