Apple acknowledges connection issue with new Apple Watch
The headline feature of the new Apple Watch may not work as reliably as it should when the device starts shipping later this week.
In a review of the Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular, which promises the ability to connect to LTE networks independently from a user’s iPhone, The Verge’s Lauren Goode wrote that the device repeatedly struggled to join a cellular network and would instead remain hung up on “random” Wi-Fi signals. The issue persisted across two separate test units, the review said.
The hangup was significant enough for an Apple spokesperson to provide Goode with a statement acknowledging the issue, in which the company says it is “investigating a fix” for the connectivity problem.
