Apple shows off watchOS 4

The first update that the Cupertino giant announced was tvOS with Amazon coming to the Apple TV. Simply put, Apple is riffing on Siri and the Apple Watch just like Amazon and Google talk about Alexa and Google Assistant, respectively.

Apple is making Siri more front and center in watchOS 4 with a new Siri watch face that automatically displays the information that's most important to you. The tablet is thinner than its predecessors, and it will come with a much clearer display and improved screen refresh rate. Here's everything detailed on the keynote. The machines will provide the watch with improved data on burnt calories, distances, speed, pace, and more, producing the most accurate workout data possible for a consumer-grade fitness tracker.

When it comes to the new iPad, it will get a new multi-app view that lets the user interact with several apps at the same time, not just select which app the user wants to switch to.

The first one shown was Siri Intelligence. Now, you'll get Toy Story faces, showing off Woody, Jessie, and Buzz Lightyear with animated vignettes. In the demonstration shown by Apple this week, the Apple Watch attained information from gym equipment using NFC.

The activity app has been upgraded as well.




The developer preview of watchOS 4 is available from today for developers and ushers in a suite of new tools to better enable them to build Apple Watch software. Now you can choose different exercises to complete that will all be recorded in the same workout.

Improvements to the Workout app will enable you to more accurately collect data from pool and HIIT workouts.

This works specifically with gym equipment.

For fitness buffs, Apple's watchOS 4 will offer personalised Activity notifications with celebratory animations for every new milestone reached. There's also a redesigned dock interface so that you can vertically scroll through recent apps using the Digital Crown. The big thing here includes the automatic, reliable syncing in the background. My Favorites Mix and My New Music Mix require an Apple Music® subscription. The Music app will automatically sync tracks to your Watch depending on what you like to listen to, and you can assign playlists to workouts so they automatically start playing when you begin that workout.

Here we round up all the latest news and rumours about watchOS 4, and break down its key features. The company's vice-president of technology Kevin Lynch said at the company's annual developer conference that users would be able to link their watch to a glucose sensor from Dexcom, a medical device maker.
