WatchOS 4 official with Siri watchface and improved Apple Music app

Apple watchOS 4 release date, news and features

But perhaps the most exciting update is the fact that Siri can now be used on Apple Watch.

The Apple Watch's screen will change its display whenever the user raises its wrist; the notifications shown will vary depending on the day, the user's active alarms, calendar events, news headlines, and any other app that's enabled to show notifications. Other watch faces will be as playful as they are informative, such as ones modeled after Toy Story characters and a kaleidoscope.

Apple is also bringing monthly challenges to the activity app while the Workouts app is getting some small upgrades to make it easier to use. With the latter feature, you can pair your Apple Watch with gym equipment over NFC to enable two-way data sharing between the devices, which will ensure that stats like your calories burned and heart rate will be accurate.

watchOS 4 also adds a new Music app. The Music app also starts automatically with a workout and there are several other options that you can control like swiping left during the workout to control your music.

Apple improved the fitness capabilities of the watchOS. Brandon Ballinger, founder of Cardiogram, a health-tracking app for Apple Watch, said it's exactly what developers need to do just that.

WatchOS 4: What is WatchOS?




The new software could bring some new, more elaborate watch faces, as well as the ability to set the watch face to always display the time.

There are Photos, content from Apple news, coaching reminders from the Activity App, the weather, a reminder from the Breathe app. With the update, you can navigate through the album art by turning the Digital Crown. WatchOS 4 also adds some new workouts such as high intensity interval training and includes some updates to the workouts for swimming.

The Music app on Apple Watch has been redesigned.

Apple watchOS 4 is going to launch as an update this fall, while the developer's preview will start seeding later today. Native core bluetooth support, for example, is coming to Apple Watch.

Plus, WatchOS 4 introduces a mode called "Gym Connect", which allows you to sync directly with gym equipment like treadmills and ellipticals. Apple's more than 100,000 employees are dedicated to making the best products on earth, and to leaving the world better than we found it.
