    It adds some new faces, one of which I really like. It is "color" but I've chosen to just have the ring of minutes on my Series 2 watch. It has four complications, which is nice.

    Looks like the updaters at Apple were busy today. Updates to iOS, watchOS, and macOS.

    WatchOS was pulled due to a few people reporting that their Apple Watch was bricking during the update.

    Ashwin, is there a reference for that? I've not seen that anywhere else on the internet at all. I think some people don't realize how slowly the  watch updates. My Series 2 took close to two hours to complete. At one point it had the progress bars, then went black and after a short time the  showed up again, it went rapidly back to the bars and then completed. I suspect some folks took it off power when the  appeared, thinking it was done and booting, but it was another 30 minutes until the watch actually started.

    For some reason my guardian angel reminded me to search for any issues with the update. I found on MacRumors people reporting issues with the update on the S4. I decided to wait and now the update has been pulled. Evidently it is only the S4 that is having issues. Others report their S2 and S3 are having no issues. I have an S3 but I decided to wait with it too. Now it is a non-starter since it has been pulled.

    This happened once before with an AW update (can't remember which one) but I got lucky and my watch did not brick. I did not want to find out if the second time would be the charm.

    Recommend using Onyx to clean your Mac.
