Apple “acknowledges” issue with its 2022 Apple Watch models, but why buyers need not worry – Times of India

Apple has reportedly acknowledged the issue with its recently-launched Apple Watch models — Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Ultra. There have been reports of some users experiencing microphone issues, including when trying to use Siri, make a phone call, and more. In a report, MacRumours claims that it has obtained a memo from Apple that acknowledges the issue. “Apple says it’s aware of the bug affecting users, specifically saying customers could face problems with ‌‌Siri‌‌ not being able to hear them, recording voice memos, and conducting phone calls. A “Measurement Suspended” message may also appear in the Noise app,” says the report quoting the memo.
Apple’s temporary fix for the issue
Apple has reportedly also shared a temporary fix to the issue. The company says that restarting the Apple Watch may temporarily fix the problem.
Why Apple Watch users need not worry
The memo suggests that the problem is not hardware related. It adds that customers should remain updated to the latest watchOS version, indicating a fix is on the way and could be released soon. This means that while users of the latest-generation Apple Watch may find the issue bugging, it is likely to get a fix soon and there is no hardware problem with their devices.
Apple launched three smartwatches at its ‘Far Out’ event on September 7 — Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch Ultra and Apple Watch SE (gen 2). While Apple Watch Series 8 succeeds Apple Watch Series 7, Apple Watch SE (gen 2) is successor of Apple’s most-affordable Apple Watch model Apple Watch SE launched in 2020. Apple Watch Ultra is the company’s entry into the rugged smartwatch space. Aimed at hikers and trekkers, Apple takes on Garmin with the new watch.
Pricing of 2022 Apple Watch models in India
In India, Apple Watch Series 8 is priced at Rs 45,900 onwards; Apple Watch SE at Rs 29,900 and Apple Watch Ultra at Rs 89,900.
