Apple announces new watchOS 4 update at WWDC 2017

06 June 2017

This week Apple's Kevin Lynch stood on stage at WWDC 2017 and spoke about the next big update to the Apple Watch.

Aside from the Siri watch face, a partnership with Toy Story allows for an animated watch face featuring the characters, while another face will let you create some impressive kaleidoscope images from your photos.

The watch face will refresh whenever users raise their wrist throughout the day and enable users to flip through cards serving up different pieces of information.

Apple is also teaming with a number of fitness equipment providers like TurboGym, which makes it possible to directly sync workout data back to the Apple Watch.

Finally, native core bluetooth will come to all Apple Watches once WatchOS 4 starts hitting them. Apple's watchOS 4 can also communicate with popular gym equipment so users can track their activity on a treadmill, elliptical, and other products. And if you're the sort who can't start a run without some music, you can pick a playlist that automatically starts alongside your routine.

Apple has just unveiled the latest update to its wearable OS.

Factory managers couldn't be reached for comment by phone. "The accusation from Jiangxi police has no factual basis", Li said. In the past, the worst thing Li feared was having investigators kicked out of a factory or face a short police detention .

The Apple Watch's signature Activity ring feature will help you stick to your daily fitness regimen with greater rigor. So for all intents and purposes, it's basically the Apple Watch's own version of Google Now. All Watches will be eligible to release the operating system for free once it is released in the fall.

The Activity application is one of the most used ones on the Apple Watch and it is now gaining a slew of new capabilities.

Apple has just confirmed watchOS 4 at WWDC 2017, and the developer preview is out now. When switching between workouts, you can now tap a plus button to add multiple workouts to that session. With the update, you can navigate through the album art by turning the Digital Crown.

For fitness buffs, Apple's watchOS 4 will offer personalised Activity notifications with celebratory animations for every new milestone reached. The company has addressed the problems with gym equipment as well with WatchOS 4.

The Music app on Apple Watch has been redesigned.

We will nearly certainly see Apple's latest software iteration at this year's WWDC on 5 June. Similar to the iPhone, the control center will also now have flashlight functionality using the display.
