Earlier today, some Korean users have reported that their Apple Watch SE is overheating and causing issues, which is alarming as it has hardly been a month since its release.
Reports revealed that according to a Reddit thread, a number of users noticed a yellow spot on their new Apple Watch’s displays, signifying damage caused by overheating. Some even had their wrists burned due to the wearable while others were lucky to have it overheat only while it was charging.
The yellow spot grew fairly large for some people.
According to a report from Apple Insider, the issue is entrenched in the display connector, between the Taptic Engine and Digital Crown. This was discovered by examining the older Apple Watch models that were inundated by the same issue.
3 out of the 6 owners have been refunded and are expecting a personal response from Apple. Although, it is still unclear whether the problem affects a small batch of Korean units, or is found in a select few watches worldwide.
