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

Only wearables that had the Infograph Modular face active experienced the reboot loop.

When clocks change there isn't the standard 24 hours in a single day, and that seems to be causing the issue.

Luckily it's not something that Apple Watch Series 4 owners in South Africa will have to worry about, as DST is not a thing here.

Some owners of Apple's Series 4 Watch are having problems with continuous cycles of rebooting because of a problem with daylight savings time.

Some users have had success changing the face through the Watch app on the iPhone, but the only surefire solution may be to wait until the shortened day is over. The device would boot, try and load the complications, fail to load them, and then reboot again hoping to start up correctly each time. Leaving it on the charger in this state will probably not be good for the battery's long-term health.

It's not clear if the smaller Activity issues are causing problems, so far it appears to be limited to the large Activity issue in the centre of the Infograph Modular watch face. Affected users can also look to remove the activity complication from the Watch via the companion app.

As of now, it is not clear if the smaller activity complications are causing the issue.

However, Apple will need to issue an update pretty quick, as Europe is heading for Daylight Saving pretty soon and the U.S. at the beginning of November.

The Tame Apple Press says that there is nothing to worry about as Europe moves off DST at the end of the month, and North America changes over on 4 November, so Apple has plenty of time to issue a fix for other regions.
