Apple watchOS 4 release date, news and features

Key Speakers At The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference

Of course, Apple highlighted new watch faces, but the big theme for the WatchOS was to provide more information and data at a glance.

Apple has just announced that watchOS 4, the next version of its smartwatch platform, will be arriving later this fall.

"When you use gym equipment it has data the Apple Watch doesn't have, and the Watch has data the gym equipment doesn't have, so you end up with numbers like calories and distance that don't quite match", Apple VP of Technology Kevin Lynch said. The watch will now change the information displayed onscreen depending on the user's personal apps, including calendar, notes, traffic, weather, and many others.

The Mickey and Minnie watch faces have new friends because Toy Story's Woody, Jesse, Buzz are coming to watchOS 4.

Finally, native core bluetooth will come to all Apple Watches once WatchOS 4 starts hitting them.

The new OS generation should mean a richer set of supported apps, but there are a few in particular that users are craving for the Apple Watch. Stay tuned for more news from the WWDC. Apple have just made it even better, with achievable daily and monthly challenges, High Intensity Interval Training, and auto logging swimming laps. If the bets being made on AI by Amazon, Facebook, and Google pay off, Arment mused, "Apple will find itself in a similar position as BlackBerry did nearly a decade ago: What they're able to do, despite being very good at it, won't be enough anymore, and they won't be able to catch up". You can rotate the Digital Crown to scroll vertically through the various notifications and apps on the face. It has a new kaleidoscope watch face as well. This is called Gym Connect - and it's not likely the last.

The Music app on Apple Watch has been redesigned.

The Workout app in watchOS4 will also have some specific exercise updates as well.

Apple's watchOS 4 will be available in the fall.

The best-selling wearable on the market (well, estimated, since Tim Cook will never tell us exactly how many units the company has actually sold) is done with edging into the health and fitness space. Apple also added a new blinking light, which you can activate via Control Centre, so that your night runs can be a bit safer.
