WatchOS 5.1 Bricking Apple Watch for Some Users, No Fix in Sight

Apple's privacy tools now go beyond Europe, so more now get to download the personal data it has collected.

iOS 12.1 is rolling out today, head into Settings General Software Update to grab it once it becomes available.

Depth control was previously available in iOS 12 on compatible iPhones, but what's new in 12.1 is that the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR can now perform depth adjustments live in the camera's viewfinder before a photo's even been taken. Users can now adjust the depth of field while they're framing the shot in addition to post-capture adjustments.

The decision came following a handful of reports of bricked Apple Watches on Twitter and reddit, with users reporting that their devices were stuck on the Apple logo while booting up.

FaceTime in iOS 12.1 finally gets the "group" aspect that Apple teased when initially announcing iOS 12. FaceTime is video chat between iPhones, and it kind of makes sense for two people if you grew up watching The Jetsons. Although the most obvious changes are Group FaceTime and the over 70 new emojis, the latest update to this mobile operating system also comes with a few other highlights. It is expected to bring Group FaceTime and new emoji, as well as Depth Control in Camera Preview, and Dual SIM Support for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. The newest version brings Group FaceTime with up to 32 people simultaneously and over 70 new emoji to iPhones and iPads via iOS 12.1.

Apple will likely end up releasing a new build of watchOS 5.1 with this bricking issue fixed for good.

Participants who are not active will appear at the bottom of the screen until they talk.

Start Group FaceTime straight from a group Messages conversation or join an active call at any time.

"If people in a conversation have already started a FaceTime session, Messages shows the active call in the conversation list and inside your conversations", said Apple. One can tap a specific person's tile and bring them to center as well.

Dual SIM support for the latest iPhone lineup is also coming.
