Fresh reports hint at watchOS 10 and what will include, and we’re definitely excited! Some significant upgrades for the Apple Watch are coming this year, some that we all waited for quite a while. So, thanks to a report from Bloomberg, sleek UI improvements for Apple Watch’s widgets could find their way into the watchOS 10. What other features should we expect?
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman detailed:
The plan is to let users scroll through a series of different widgets — for activity tracking, weather, stock tickers, calendar appointments and more — rather than having them launch apps.
The hints provided by Gurmanin are probably the most interesting ones. He has previously discussed how watchOS 10 will bring “notable changes” shortly this year, and the information released today goes into more detail about what we might finally see on watchOS 10. Neat!
What are your thoughts on watchOS 10?
So, moving next to the recent details, the watchOS 10 will be set to enable widgets and make them a “central part” of our Apple Watch’s experience. Practically, the new look, based on Gurman’s findings, is somehow “reminiscent of the Siri watch face.” It could also be comparable to “widget stacks,” a new cool iPhone and iPad feature. Quite impressive, isn’t it?!
But, this new highly expected design has a main objective: to allow all users to get all the needed information way more quickly, without requiring them to launch specific apps. Well, that’s something we should bet all of our money on, right?!
Finally, Gurman also claims that the tech giant is now thinking about altering a bit the Digital Crown’s functionality on the Apple Watch. How’s that going to be changed? Pressing the Digital Crown in the current watchOS version, as you may know by now, brings up the Apple Watch’s home screen. However, the devs are allegedly experimenting with having the Digital Crown launch the new widgets interface in watchOS 10.
Stay tuned for the latest Apple bits!
