Apple rolled out multiple updates last week, including iOS 16.5, WatchOS 9.5, and more. However, it wasn’t the smoothest update launch.

iOS 16.5 reportedly has issues, and now Apple Watch users across Apple Support forums and Reddit are reporting a weird Green Tint, which was introduced by the latest WatchOS update. 

The issue was initially noticed on the Apple Watch 8 Series; however, the green tint issue is reportedly affecting the Watch SE 2 and Watch Ultra as well.

Regarding the issue itself, the green tint is limited to specific sections of the WatchOS, like the Notification Center, Quick Settings, and others.

However, the green tint isn’t visible when looking at the watch display from different angles. It is only visible when viewed directly from a straight angle.

The good news is that restarting usually fixes the problem in most cases. However, the issue still remains on most Apple Watches across the globe, even after multiple restarts, according to reports. 

Apple hasn’t officially addressed the issue yet. It wouldn’t be surprising if they release a watchOS 9.5.1 update to fix it.
