If your Apple Watch pings all night long, you’re not the only one experiencing this annoying issue. Even if you enable Silent Mode during night hours, this annoying behavior persists. It’s as if the device is continually disconnecting and reconnecting to the charger. Let’s explore what could be causing your Apple Watch to ping at night and how to fix this problem.
How Do I Stop My Apple Watch From Pinging at Night?
Check Your Charger
If your Apple Watch pings while charging, this indicates the device stops charging for a few seconds and then starts charging again. The charger itself could be faulty. Use a different charger and check if the issue persists.
Ideally, use only Apple-supplied chargers. Cheap chargers can overheat, and even shut down for a few seconds. If you’re using a third-party charger, buy an original Apple charger, and check if you notice any changes.
Get the Latest watchOS Updates
Many users noticed this issue started occurring after installing watchOS 8.3 and watchOS 8.5. They’re convinced there’s no problem with the charger and this strange behavior is caused by a software bug. If you’re not running the latest watchOS version, check for updates. Install the latest watchOS release, restart your device, and check if you’re still experiencing the same issue.
If those annoying pings are indeed caused by a software bug, Apple may have already patched the problem in the latest watchOS version.
Turn the Volume Down Completely
Try turning the volume down completely on your Apple Watch. Enabling Silent Mode doesn’t stop the device from pinging at night. Go to Settings, select Sounds and Haptics, and use the Volume Down button to decrease volume.
You can turn the volume up in the morning. Many users confirmed this workaround did the trick for them. Check if this quick solution works for you as well.
If the issue persists, contact Apple Support for further help.
If your Apple Watch pings during night hours, make sure it’s charging properly. Check your charger and power source and ensure they’re working as expected. If you’re using a third-party charger, switch to an original Apple charger. Make sure your device is running the latest watchOS version. If the annoying pings persist, turn the volume down completely using the Volume Down button.
