Everyone’s little impatient when there is a new update available for Apple Watch. Users simply rush to update their wrist gadget to latest WatchOS in anticipation to enhance the performance and check the exciting new features. What they don’t understand is that the new beta update sometimes contains bugs and can also leave you with a dead metal piece on your wrist. One of the bugs with the latest WatchOS 2 is that the Apple Watch gets stuck at boot logo.
There isn’t any official word from Apple, but we expect it to fix soon. Until then, you are left with confusion and frustration at the same time. As always, we are here to help you; we have listed some of the possible fixes that should resolve this issue.
Please note that these fixes are troubleshooting and many users were able to pass the boot screen with either of the fixes listed below, so have a look and give it a try one by one.
How to Fix Apple Watch Stuck at Apple Logo
The very first thing we will need to do is to get out of that boot loop zone in order to perform addition troubleshooting. So let’s try to revive our wrist friend back to life.
Before proceeding with other troubleshooting make sure you have your Apple Watch adequately charged. This is the primary step before doing anything else. So place it on charging for a couple of hours and then look for the fixes given below.
Force restart it by holding both the button on your Apple Watch until you see the Apple logo. I am pretty sure that doing this just once isn’t going to solve a damn thing. So give it a try for few times and check if it is coming back to life. If it doesn’t, then I am sorry to say you’ll need to take it to the Apple Store. In case this worked, then you can continue reading.
Assuming that you were able to pass through the boot loop, we can now proceed with things to fix the problem. If you have set a passcode on the lock screen, then force touch the screen to bring up reset options. After the option is revealed, perform a factory reset from there.
Once the reset process is completed, pair it with your iPhone. Some of the users weren’t able to pair with iPhone for a couple of times. Restart your Apple Watch with every failure and keep trying, it should pair successfully after a few tries.
Make sure you don’t restore from a backup, as this is likely to bring the bugs back and you’ll be back to where you were. So setup your Apple Watch as new, though it is frustrating and tedious, but at least better than a dead smart watch.
After you are done with setting things up, you can start syncing your apps one by one, and everything will be fine.
I hope this fixes would have solved the problem, but if it doesn’t, then book an appointment with Apple fellows at the earliest and try to ask for a replacement.
