Apple hails revamped operating system as “milestone” update for business

Brand insists latest development represents an energising new approach for the Apple Watch

Apple has branded its watchOS 10 a “milestone update” for the business.

The new platform offers users a fresh approach to quickly view information with redesigned apps, a new Smart Stack to show relevant widgets right when they’re needed, and new watch faces.

New metrics, Workout Views, and Bluetooth connectivity for power meters, speed sensors, and cadence sensors have been created for cyclists, while new Compass Waypoints and Maps capabilities further help hikers.

The Mindfulness app offers additional tools to support mental health. WatchOS 10 is available as a developer beta today, and will be available as a free software update this fall.

“WatchOS is the world’s most advanced wearable operating system, and it has redefined how people all over the world think of what a watch can do,” said Kevin Lynch, Apple’s vice president of technology.

“WatchOS 10 is a major milestone and an energising new approach for Apple Watch, introducing a fresh new design for quickly viewing information, delightful new watch faces, new features for cyclists and hikers, and important tools for health.”

With WatchOS 10, redesigned apps provide more information at a glance, and there are new ways to navigate and quickly access content.

“We’ve redesigned the interface, allowing users to experience Apple Watch like never before,” said Alan Dye, Apple’s vice president of human interface design.

“The update gives users the information that matters most to them at a glance, simplified navigation, and a new visual language that takes full advantage of the Apple Watch display. We’re also introducing the Smart Stack, offering quick access to proactive and relevant information, right from the watch face.”
