    Looks like Apple fixed Apple Watch 6 going torch screen this updated. Usually happened for me when I put my watch on, but I try and change the screen and it turn off the max brightness. So far took off my watch twice, and no max brightness. Luckily, I haven't encountered the dead screens other have (which I know there is a free repair for dead screen).
