    Apple has unexpectedly shipped an update to watchOS bringing it to version 5.1.1, a release of the wearable operating system that seems to solve a recent issue that bricked some models of Apple Watch.

    The new watchOS 5.1.1 replaces version 5.1, following reports some users attempting to install the release discovered their devices had bricked. Users were able to download the update and begin the installation, but the process froze at the Apple Logo, with it remaining onscreen for hours.
