WatchOS 5.1.1 Fixes Bricking Issues From Previous Faulty Update

Apple has just released watchOS 5.1.1, about a week after watchOS 5.1 was released and quickly removed after some users reported the update made their Apple Watch Series 4 freeze permanently. With watchOS 5.1.1, Apple has provided the updates intended to ship with the fatal watchOS 5.1 update previously. This includes support for more than 70 new emoji seen on iOS 12.1, several full-screen colour watch faces, and support for group FaceTime audio for up to 32 participants.

Users affected by the bricking issue caused by the watchOS 5.1 update have little recourse except to contact Apple to seek a replacement device. Reports indicate only Series 4 Apple Watches are affected.
