The Apple Watch Crashes on WatchOS 4.1 Because of This Weather Issue

Apple Watch owners are reporting a bug that is causing the Series 3 models – and those running Watch OS 4.1 and above – to crash in relation to a weather feature. More specifically, if you ask the device about today’s weather – as in the current days – and you happen to be located in a time zone about to end Daylight Saving time, the watch will crash.

It was first reported on Reddit in the official Apple Watch subreddit by user “Douche_Baguette” (nice name there buddy). It is affecting all devices including the LTE and non-LTE versions of the watch.

Siri will often hang or crash entirely after being prompted to reveal the current day’s weather.

If you have been affected, or have run into this issue feel free to share your experiences in the comments below. Several users have already reported the issue to Apple devs, and hopefully a fix will be rolled out soon.
