Apple Watch seems to take forever to boot up (video)

By Jaime Rivera April 20, 2015, 2:57 pm

Apple has been famous for battling boot up times since the launch of the second-generation MacBook Air. People were clearly in shock when they saw a computer startup from scratch to a lock screen in just a second or two, and that has been the standard for most Macs running on a solid state drive. Sadly the story is dramatically different with Apple’s iOS lineup, and if you thought the Apple Watch would do better, think again.

A video was recently published on YouTube showing the Apple Watch startup process, and believe it or not, it takes a crazy 70 seconds. Just to give you an idea, it takes a 64-bit iPhone 20 seconds to boot, and the number is similar in the case of an iPad. It could be that the delay is due to the device being a store demo unit, since we know that there is some additional software involved that could slow things down, but judging by how long it took for the watch to run the Weather app, times are concerning.


For many of you this might not be a big deal, but as Apple has gotten sloppier with app crashes on its iOS products, this might be an issue. Yes, we know the video has a ton of thumbs down so far.
