Apple has confirmed that its latest smartwatch will go factory default in the coming weeks.
Apple has made the announcement via Twitter, confirming that the watch will be coming back to default in early 2017.
“For those of you who bought your Apple Watch 2 or 3 and have not updated, you can expect your Watch 3 to go factory defaults on July 12, 2017.
In the meantime, we have released an update for Apple Watch Series 3 to fix some of the issues you may have been experiencing.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.”
The update is not available to everyone.
However, if you bought a watch before May 26, 2018 and it does not have a “watch app” or an Apple Watch app, the watch should automatically go factory-default in a few weeks time.
The update will also allow users to update to the new watchOS version.
The Apple Watch and Apple Watch Pro also went back to defaults when Apple released a “New Software” update in October, but this did not fix all of the problems.
It also did not fully address the issues that the original update caused.
Apple is also set to introduce an update to its watchOS app to address some of those issues.
Apple Watch and the Apple Watch OS are both based on Android, the operating system of the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
The Apple Watch is also powered by an embedded processor, making it a more powerful device than most other smartwatches.
Apple says that the new software will be fully compatible with all Apple Watch devices running Android, but the watchOS developers have yet to release an official software update for the watch.
