Apple has launched a software update designed to fix the mobile connectivity issues that have hampered its newest Watch 3 smartwatch, the first to feature an LTE chip. Reviewers at The Wall Street Journal and the Verge last month reported encountering problems making calls, connecting with the Siri virtual assistant and maintaining a mobile connection. Apple subsequently acknowledged the problems and has now issued a software patch, version watchOS 4.0.1, that it says fixes the issue "in rare cases" where connectivity issues arose.
