Can they release an update that finally lets my Series 6 drop below 81%! Been paying AppleCare+ for years and that damn thing literally refuses to hit the 80% mark. I feel like they are doing it intentionally. One update actually made it go from 82% up to 84% again

Green tint issue is still not fixed on my AW4...

Unfortunately, it does not.

No fix for the tint issue on my Series 6 either.
Thank you both for the heads-up.

This update was surprisingly quick today. Thank you for the advice and initiating the update from the watch itself. I think that has made a difference.
