As reported by Apple Insider, the overheating issues stemmed from the same area: above the display connector, between the Taptic Engine and Digital Crown. This deduction was reached by analyzing teardowns of older Apple Watch models. Apparently, a sign of the impending incident is a yellow spot on the screen that affected users have spotted.

Luckily for some, the watch overheated while on the charger, while others weren’t so lucky and experienced a burning sensation while wearing it on the wrist. Out of the six owners with the issue, three have been issued refunds and are expecting a personal response from Apple.

It appears the issue is limited to a small batch of watches produced for the South Korean market.
