Apple Watch Series 4 Crashing and Rebooting Due to DST Bug

Apple Watch Series 4 Sports Band Pink Sand

Apple and its DST woes continue. Every time a Daylight Saving Time (DST) switch happens or is about to happen, iOS or Mac devices end up crashing due to some underlying bug. This time around, the same story is being repeated with the Apple Watch Series 4.

Many Apple Watch Series 4 owners in Australia are complaining about their wearable crashing and rebooting continuously. People in Australia moved their clock forward by an hour which is what is leading to the Apple Watch crashing and rebooting.

There seem to be two solutions to resolve the issue for now. The first one is to simply wait it out until tomorrow when a new day starts as it should lead to the watch automatically fixing itself. Another solution is to remove all complications from the Apple Watch one-by-one which should end up resolving the issue.

Europe and the United States will switch back to standrd time later this month and its likely that Apple will likely end resolving this issue with a software update before that.

Apple devices have in the past crashed due to a DST change, though in recent years, Apple has managed to solve this issue for good.
