When watchOS 5.1 was released, users started to install it on their Apple Watches as they should. However, a good chunk of users noticed the update had failed to install and, as a result, bricked their devices. Now, Apple’s issuing a follow up to that update with watchOS 5.1.1 that’s aimed to solve the bricking problem.
To install watchOS 5.1.1, head over to the Apple Watch app on your iPhone. From there, access the Software update section and hit “Download and install” under the listing. You’ll need to have your Apple Watch on the charging puck to install the new beta to ensure you don’t run out of juice during the process.
