Daylight saving time is reportedly causing Apple Watch Series 4 reboots

Daylight saving time is reportedly causing Apple Watch Series 4 reboots”

We had daylight saving this morning at 2am where the clock was brought forward for an hour.

Now it seems that Apple has created a watch which can not tell the time. If not, the problem should go away by itself tomorrow. If Apple doesn't manage to push a fix out by then, users might be forced to either brace the wait or disable the Infograph Modular face within the iPhone application if they can not bear a day without. Affected users can also look to remove the activity complication from the Watch via the companion app. "I added the Infograph faces - still good", one Reddit user said. Each time the device boots, it tries to load the complications and while failing it repeats the same. However, out of 24 hours, the particular watch face is reportedly not registering an hour or so worth of activities.

As of now, it is not clear if the smaller activity complications are causing the issue.

Apple was yet to release a bug-fix software update to resolve this issue.

Even though it is not a major issue, Apple will have to fix it so users in other parts of the world do not suffer from the same issue. Having just experienced the time change for Fall, many upset Australians were anxious that their watches were defective given constant crashing and reboot issues. Thus Apple has some time to come up with a permanent fix.

So far it has caused alarms to fail across Europe, alarms simply not working on New Year's Day, and the incorrect time being shown in the built-in calendar app. Going all the way back to iOS 4 in late 2010, iPhone users had problems waking up their devices due to the time change.

So, the Apple Watch Series 4 is a pretty attractive piece of hardware. This limited-edition variant is different from the standard Series 4 model in several ways.
