Some Apple Watch experience recharging issues with watchOS 5.0.1

WatchOS5 podcasts

The truth is that Apple does not stop in its efforts to make its products work as well as possible and if very recently they put into circulation the new watchOS 5 system, and later as our colleague Jordi told us a few days ago the Watch 5.0.1, now they are showing on the network, users who are having problems with recharging the Apple Watch. As we already said in Jordi's article, watchOS 5.0.1 is a quick update for Apple Watch users in which Apple fixes certain problems, but specifically one that prevents the Apple Watch from charging properly.

If you updated your Apple Watch to watchOS 5, it may be that in the last few days you have realized that the device recharge is not entirely correct. Those of Cupertino have detected errors in the last update they put an ongoing remedy, system version 5.0.1, although certain users continue to report problems with reloading. 

Apple detected very quickly that there were problems in watchOS 5 and they fixed it with watchOS 5.0.1. However, users who continue to report problems with recharging their devices are beginning to be seen. What the update was supposed to fix was:

  • Resolves the issue that caused some users to not receive credit for standing up in the afternoon.
  • Resolves an issue that was causing a small number of users to see an increase in exercise minutes.
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent the Apple Watch from charging.

Of the three problems, the one that is critical is recharging, and if the device is not recharged properly, we could even damage it. Undoubtedly, there are times when we wonder how it is possible for Apple to put into circulation a system with these types of failures. So go to your iPhone and Get started with updating your Apple Watch before it can run into problems. If once it has been updated you still have problems with recharging, we advise you to unlink it and start the process again. 

We are going to be attentive to any possible movement by Apple and until now, we only knew what our colleague Jordi Giménez told us in his article on the watchOS 5.0.1 version
