WWDC 2019: watchOS 6 makes Apple Watch be more independent of iPhone
By Julio Ventura 2019-06-04 161 0
It was presented when it was released in 2015 as Apple's future. The Apple Watch will become even more independent from the iPhone with watchOS 6. This is possible thanks to the arrival of a dedicated App Store, accessible directly from the watch. You can search for the application of your choice by dictating or scribbling its name. These applications will be able to run on the watch, without the need for a "mother application" installed on the iPhone.
To this end, Apple will open certain features to third-party developers. This will allow them to access the Runtime API and Streaming Audio API. The first API provides access to activity data (for fitness applications for example). The second will allow the creation of applications that can broadcast music. It is therefore to be expected that a stand-alone Spotify application will be available in the near future.
Apple is also involved in its own new applications: Audiobooks will allow you to read audio books directly from your watch. The calculator will avoid taking your smartphone out of your pocket and will also calculate the tip of an addition (Americans or tourists in the USA will love it). Finally, Voice Memo will give the possibility to record on the fly an idea dictated by your watch.
An application to monitor the menstrual cycle
Two other applications are related to health. Cycle Tracking analyses the menstrual cycle by describing the flow of menstrual periods, being warned as the cycle approaches and highlighting fertility periods.
Hearing Health analyses the volume of ambient noise to warn the user of the Watch when he is too loud to preserve his eardrums. All this data will be compiled in the Health application on iOS, which is undergoing a facelift for the occasion.
Finally, the Watch will benefit from five new dials, one of which describes the solar cycle and changes its appearance according to it.
WatchOS will be available at the beginning of the school year during the presentation of the new Watches, at the same time as the iPhone.
