You all seem to be on to something. I wonder what this flaw is doing to the App Store infrastructure, as well as the transport and access telecom. Anybody seeing smoke on W. Sahara in Las Vegas? I believe that’s where they have a primary Data Center...could be wrong. I would think that if this really is a global problem and anyone with a watch and iPhone is pounding them with sync requests in loop fashion they would be 200% under subscribed. Fills those big glass pipes up quick I would suspect. Unless they planned for it of course....but that would suggest this bug ain’t no big at all. I still have excessive battery drain but I believe mine is still associated with iMessage. I don’t own a watch.
