Following the latest watchOS 9.5 update, some users have reported an unexpected phenomenon – their Apple Watch screens are turning green. Apple Inc., the technology giant known for its groundbreaking and often imitated smartwatches, released a new update last week to improve overall user experience, but instead, a number of users are encountering an unintended side effect.
A variety of models seem to be affected, ranging from Apple Watch Series 5 to the recent Series 7, with users taking to forums and social media platforms to voice their concerns. The majority of these users report that their screen changes to a vivid green color, typically after restarting the device or randomly during use.
While the exact cause is not yet determined, preliminary investigations suggest that this issue may be due to a bug within the display calibration settings post-update. It seems the issue does not interfere with the functionality of the watch, but the green tint could potentially affect the viewing experience for some users.
“We are aware of the issues some customers are experiencing after updating to watchOS 9.5,” said an Apple spokesperson. “Our team is investigating and working on a resolution as quickly as possible. In the meantime, we recommend those affected to contact Apple Support for further assistance.”
Apple is known for its swift response to user-reported bugs, often releasing patches in a timely manner to resolve software issues. As a result, Apple Watch users who are facing the ‘green screen’ issue can likely expect a fix in the near future.
As this investigation is still underway, Apple has yet to provide specific guidance on how to remedy the problem. some users have found that a simple reboot or a factory reset has occasionally solved the issue, though these are not guaranteed fixes and could result in data loss if not backed up.
To keep up with the latest updates, visit the Apple Support website or the official Apple community forums where users share their experiences and solutions. As always, it is advisable to back up your device before installing any new updates.
