Apple expelled a program refurbish for its Series 3 watches currently that will upgrade watchOS 4 to watchOS 4.0.1. This is the first program refurbish to watchOS 4 given it became accessible for all Apple Watch models on Sep 19. The watchOS 4.0.1 refurbish focuses on regulating a singular Wi-Fi issue some Series 3 with LTE models experienced. That issue prevented the inclination from joining to LTE in preference of joining to an untouched but informed Wi-Fi network.
The refurbish page sum the problem: “watchOS 4.0.1 fixes issues that, in singular cases, were causing Apple Watch to join unauthenticated (captive) Wi-Fi networks, such as those found in open places like coffee shops and hotels, which approach the user to a webpage before the network can be accessed.”
In the first turn of Apple Watch Series 3 reviews, some reviewers gifted this problem. The Series 3 attempted to bond to a Wi-Fi network the user formerly authorized and connected to around another Apple device (like an iPhone or a Mac). Public Wi-Fi networks mostly make users accept terms and conditions or submit proxy passwords before connecting. Since the Apple Watch can't display those options, the Series 3 would seem to be connected to a Wi-Fi network, even nonetheless no service came through. This prevented the Series 3 from joining to LTE service in areas where the user may have wanted to use mobile information over any Wi-Fi network.
While we didn’t knowledge this sold problem while primarily contrast the Series 3 with LTE, we had my own unexplained (yet eventually resolved) issues. Apple knew of this Wi-Fi network problem shortly into the examination routine and pronounced it was looking into a fix that would come in a program update. WatchOS 4.0.1 is that update, and it’s only accessible for Series 3 watches. No program updates are accessible for my Series 2 watch, but watchOS 4.0.1 is prepared to download for my Series 3 device.
To download watchOS 4.0.1, go to the Watch app on your iDevice and navigate to General, then Software Update. Your Apple Watch Series 3 must be connected to Wi-Fi, placed on its charger, and have at slightest 50-percent battery life to download watchOS 4.0.1.
