Apple: Apple has released watchOS 8.1.1, a minor update for the Apple Watch Series 7 that fixes a charging issue.

The update fixes a charging issue with the Apple Watch Series 7, according to the release notes. According to Apple Insider, no user-facing functionality have been added or changed.


19R580 is the new build number for watchOS 8.1.1, which replaces 19R570. On October 25, watchOS 8.1 was released with primarily bug fixes and performance enhancements.

When the Apple Watch is on its charger, charged to at least 50% battery, and within the Wi-Fi range of the host iPhone, the update will be downloaded and installed automatically for users who have Automatic Updates enabled.

Users can also manually upgrade their Apple Watches by going to their iPhone’s Apple Watch app, according to the article.

The update follows Apple’s release of iOS 15.1.1, which contained solutions for issues with dropped calls on the iPhone 12 and 13.

There haven’t been any reports of charging issues with the Appl Watch Series 7.It’s possible that the quick charging that’s exclusive to the latest Watch has something to do with the fact that the update only fixes charging difficulties for Series 7.

There are no security upgrades in watchOS 8.1.1 or iOS 15.1.1, according to Apple.
