    I seem to have no force touch since applying the update .... S2

    Doesn't work in app tray, world clock, or to change face

    Anyone else?

    After 5.1 and getting the watch replaced, I might just wait at least 6 months before updating anything.

    Yup I’ll update on Dec 25th morning as a Christmas present to my non bricked watch.

    I’d love to update. Unfortunately my watch doesn’t want to let me.

    Are you using the latest version of iOS 12?
    Do you have a beta profile installed on the watch?

    Seems like sometimes it takes a while for an update to roll out everywhere. IDK why.

    iOS 12.1.1 beta, AW4 not on beta. My girlfriends AW2 got the update immediately.

    Reset and restored. Removed screen protector and case. Still no 3d touch.

    Now doing a new overtaking from scratch but not looking hopeful

    HW error perhaps though odd not noticed until today.

    Can any s2 owners confirm 3d touch is working well!!?

    Now if there was any way of updating my bricked S4 which has just been sitting there pissing me off until I can get to an Apple Store...

    It probably won't help, but my S4 has 3D touch working still.

    If so it will be genius bar time when I get a Chance

    Is it just me, of if I have a successful 5.1 already installed I don’t particularly feel like rolling this dice again.

    5.1 was an underwhelming update, 5.1.1 doesn’t seem worth the risk.

    When the 5.2 beta is out, hopefully with more complications, my willpower will be tested.

    Not getting notifications for SMS texts after update, only iMessage. :(
    And still no email custom notifications

    After hearing of many successes with 5.1.1, I bit the bullet and upgraded an bricked replacement. All seemed to go well, but the little circle that shows installation progress went to the dreaded solid white apple logo before it had completed the circle which is exactly what it did when my previous watch bricked. I nearly crapped myself but fortunately the white apple logo disappeared and the watch then rebooted and powered up successfully. :)

    I got bricked last time around. 5.1.1 installed on my new replacement AW 4 with no issues.

    I'll be pedantic ... 5.1.1 doesn't fix bricking, it avoids it. People may read your title in hope that they can somehow install 5.1.1 on a bricked device to un-brick it.

    I’m keeping my non brick series 4 replacement on 5.0.1 for a little while longer. I don’t care about the 58 million new emojis.

    Have the latest update on my phone and 5.1 on my watch. 5.1.1 won't install, says it can't connect to the internet to verify the image or something like that. It just fails to install every time.

    5.1 is really fast connecting to LTE when you loose connection to iPhone very impressed with the speed. It used to take like 10 sec to connect to LTE it's almost instant now.
