Apple Watch: You had one job.

Apple Watches repeatedly crashing and rebooting due to daylight saving time bug

The Watch reboots itself repeatedly, as long as the Infograph Modular face is active with the Activity complication. This becomes an endless loop as every time the device boots, it once again tries to load the complications, fails, and restarts. This continues indefinitely until the watch runs out of power.

    If only there was an established methodology to download (current) time zone data and apply it to the phone.

    I wonder what will happen when DST is eliminated?

      Another set of entries added to the timezone databases, I guess.

    • It's not about it thinking it's the wrong hour. It's about it displaying a histogram with 24 lines and assuming that they correspond to consecutively-numbered hours.

      DST is never going away because some rich dipshit somewhere doesn't want it to. See also, all the world's other problems.

      • Joe Luser says:

        The reason DST will never go away is because that's not what everyone wants to go away. They want Standard Time to go away. But when they think about that, and calculate how late the sun will come up in January, they stop talking about it until the next October.

    Remember the rubric: Spring forwards, crash back!
