On February 16, Apple officially launched watchOS 7.3.1 version system. In addition to daily repairs and improvements, this system mainly fixes the problem that Apple Watch Series 5 and Apple Watch SE cannot be charged in power saving mode.
According to Apple’s support documents, the problem that Apple Watch Series 5 and Apple Watch SE cannot be charged in power-saving mode mainly occurs on the devices of a small number of users.
If you are not sure whether your device is affected, you can put your Apple Watch on a commonly used charger and wait at least 30 minutes. If the charging is normal, there is no problem.
If the Apple Watch still cannot be charged after 30 minutes, users can contact Apple’s support service to send in repairs. Apple said it will repair the affected users free of charge.
It is reported that Apple Watch 5 is the fifth-generation flagship smart watch launched by Apple, while Apple Watch SE is the “youth version” released together with the sixth-generation Apple Watch 6. It uses the S5 chip.
If you are a user of these two devices, you should upgrade to this system as soon as possible.
