Nepoznati dodiri: Apple istražuje problem s “duhovima” na pametnim satovima

You glance at your Apple smartwatch and notice that someone else seems to be touching it, even though it’s not you or anyone beside you. The phenomenon of “ghost touches” on screens is not uncommon in the world of technology, but it can be an unpleasant experience for users as it means that the device is doing something they don’t want it to do.

The latest models of Apple smartwatches, the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2, are facing the issue of “ghost touches”. Apple is currently investigating this problem, which manifests as touches and swipes registering on the screen even when the device’s surface is not being touched at all.

What is actually happening? It is possible that the watch is autonomously selecting contacts, meaning that it initiates calls to someone without the owner’s input. Some users have noticed that entering their password on the smartwatch has become more difficult, as if something is interfering with the input. The exact cause of this issue is still unknown.

Furthermore, it is unclear when Apple will find a solution to this problem. If the problem can be resolved through a software update (which is even uncertain), the question is when that update will be delivered to users who are facing the issue.

It is important to note that the exact number of smartwatch owners who have reported these errors and problems is currently unknown, as the issue has only recently emerged. Additionally, not everyone who notices the problem necessarily reports it.

As a possible solution to the “ghost touch” problem, Apple recommends forcefully restarting the watch. Of course, regular software updates are also important.

It is worth mentioning that older models of Apple smartwatches are not susceptible to this problem.
