watchOS 5 Beta 1 causes problems – Apple reacts with retreat

According to some entries on Reddit and in Apple’s Developer Forum, some users have already failed to install the first beta to watchOS 5. According to reports, the software froze the Apple Watch when transferring the beta and then showed no reaction. This problem should be particularly affected the models of the Apple Watch Series 2.

Apple has therefore decided to recall the beta for watchOS 5 for the time being and to investigate the problem. Both the configuration file as well as the possibility of the “Over the Air” -Update were temporarily removed. On the developer portal, it was announced that sufferers should contact AppleCare:

Seed 1 of watchOS 5 is temporarily unavailable. We are investigating an issue that occurs while updating. If you’ve experienced any issues, please contact AppleCare.

Already with other watchOS betas there were similar problems. Therefore, it can be assumed that Apple will make the beta available in a few days, so that the developers can get a first impression of the new software. In addition, it may happen that Apple releases the release again with the second beta.
