This may seem like a strange post but it might help someone wondering if their Apple Watch Series 2 is stuck on boot. My series 2 takes just over a minute to boot up after a restart.

It hasn’t lost sync and the weather app is workingContinue reading “watchOS 5 beta initial impressions”
I’ve been asking for third party watch faces on watchOS for the last few years and have come to the conclusion we won’t get them – ever.
