Since smartwatches have entered our lives, they have won the public's favor with their convenience and versatility. Especially products like Apple Watch have won consumers' favor with their excellent design and features. However, such devices are not without problems. A common problem is that some users find their Apple Watch unable to charge after a long period of non-use. This article will delve into this issue and offer some solutions.
Why does the Apple Watch have charging problems if not used for a long time?
If the Apple Watch is left unused for a long period of time, the battery may become completely drained. When the battery is completely drained, attempting to charge it immediately may be problematic. This is because it takes a while for the device to recover when it is extremely low or when the battery is at zero. This is due to the working principle of lithium batteries.
How to solve the problem that Apple Watch can't be charged without using it for a long time?
1. Charge correctly:
- Make sure you are using the original charger provided by Apple. Using an unofficial charger may result in the device not charging properly.
- Place your Apple Watch on the charger and make sure the device is properly connected. The magnetic part of the charger should be tightly attached to the back of the watch to ensure that there is no interference in the connection between the charger and the device.
2. Wait patiently:
If none of the above methods solves the problem, then you may need to be patient for a while. When the battery is low, the device may take up to an hour to respond. During this time, keep the device connected to a power source.
3. Force restart:
If the device is still unresponsive after waiting for some time, you may need to try to force restart the device. Press and hold both Apple Watch buttons (digital crown and side button) at the same time until you see the Apple logo.
4. Software updates:
Some users have reported that updating to the latest watchOS solves charging issues. To update your device, you need to make sure that the iOS on your iPhone is up to date, then check for updates in the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.
5. Seek help:
If all the above steps fail to solve the problem, then it may be necessary to seek professional help from Apple. Visit Apple's online support or send the device directly to Apple's retail store, where experts can perform a more in-depth check and fix the device.
