  • A daylight saving time bug crashed the latest Apple Watch (AAPL)

    According to Business Insider, Australian Apple Watch users discover a glitch over the weekend. Despite its health, fitness, and notification features, the Apple Watch apparently has trouble doing what it’s initially designed for, which is telling time. Over the weekend daylight savings time took place in Australia and the Apple Watch couldn’t handle the shortening of the time line, so it ended up in a reboot loop and wouldn’t charge or restart. The next day people’s watches seem to work fine, but in light of this glitch, I think we can all expect Apple to push out an update soon.
