Since watchOS 4 started reaching out to the users in last September, they have been hitting the blockade through lagging experiences, even in the basic functionalities. Recently, things have turned worse with the Apple Watch Series 2 watches.
According to the reports of the Apple smartwatch users, the Series 2 watches are offering lagging performance in using apps such as Music, Timer, and Workout. Alongside these, they are facing long loading time, slow animations, battery draining down, and extreme lag during scrolling or swiping. This all is affecting the assistant Siri as well, having speed issues in the latest builds like watchOS 4.2.
The complaints have appeared in official Apple Community and social media sites like Twitter, Reddit and more. These posts do not just talk about the Apple Watch Series 2, but also the Series 0 and 1 Apple Watches that are running watchOS 4 or later.
As per the complainants, it is unfortunate that the latest watchOS versions like 4.1 and 4.2 are unable to live up to the expectations of the users in terms of improvement. Hardly a handful of users reported improvements. It is worth going through some of the posts revealed in images below, in order to be aware of the issue. At the same time, if you are one of the affected users and yet to report, you might find yourself having to relate to the disappointing emotions already expressed.
It is unclear whether these glitches are appearing due to broken features or Apple throttling smartwatches like its older iPhones. Keeping aside speculations, we are still waiting to hear from the tech giant officially on the matter. Of course, Apple wouldn’t want to go with the decline of its reputations, with other recent issues it is facing regarding iPhones and taxes.
We are keeping an eye on the developments on the case and will keep you updated likewise.
