It looks like the iPhone 15 isn't the only new buggy Apple device.
The new Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 models are reportedly experiencing a flickering display issue when Always-On mode is activated.
Apple Watch bug reports are piling up
Owners of the new Apple Watch have reported the issue on Apple's Support forums, third-party Apple website message boards, and on social media platforms like Reddit.
According to MacRumors, an internal service memo has gone out to Apple Authorized Service Providers indicating that Apple is aware of the issue and preparing a fix. The memo states that service providers should not attempt to fix the device and that users should keep their devices updated with the latest watchOS.
Apple seems to be addressing the flickering issue via a software update, so the problem doesn't appear to be with the new Apple Watch hardware. The new Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 launched just last month alongside the new line of iPhone 15 models, which has experienced a myriad of problems at launch itself. Perhaps, the most pressing of those bugs was one that caused the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max to overheat. However, it appears Apple has been able to adequately address that problem through an iOS update as well.
MacRumors reports that Apple is also investigating an issue causing Apple Watch complications to "temporarily turn pink" on the device's display, which will also likely be fixed with an upcoming watchOS update.
Apple also has a temporary fix for users who are experiencing the flickering issue. Just shut off Always-On mode until the software update fix comes out and users won't experience the bug.
