Apple Watch owners have been asked to return their devices for repair after some owners complained that software had caused their devices to stop working.

Those affected reported that their watches had become stuck in a state showing only the apply logo on their screens.

The problem appears to have baffled the firm’s repair staff meaning there is no way at present for owners to restore the products themselves. Apple said it intended to release a revised update soon.

Meanwhile, several people have been told to send their watches in for a fix – much to the disappointment of some customers.

Anyone experiencing problems have been told contact AppleCare. (31st Oct 18)
