I bought my first used Apple device via eBay about a month ago. For a full 2 weeks, I was sure I had just bought a paperweight. My story could have ended in disaster, but thanks to a very accommodating seller, all’s well that ends well. But, I don’t think I’ll do it again.
Apple on Friday seeded the sixth beta of watchOS 4.3 to developers. Those in the developer program with the proper configuration profile can install the update over-the-air by navigating to the Software Update tab in the Apple Watch iPhone app.
As the watch industry gears up for the Baselworld 2018 trade show next week, Google has announced a new name for its Android-powered operating system for wearable devices, which shall be henceforth called “Wear OS by Google”.
Your Apple Watch dock puts your favorite and most used apps at the ready. You can easily select which apps you’d like to see in your Dock, remove individual apps from it or adjust how your items are arranged in the Dock.
It is far from controversial to conclude that it took Apple almost three years to nail the engineering of Apple’s first wearable: cramming in and fine-tuning batteries, processing and cellular chips and so on and so forth. We were all there along the ride and we can all (provided you have worn a Gen 0 model before) attest to the enormous advancements made over the years.
Third-party developers are now taking advantage of the built-in GPS and altimeter in Apple Watch Series 3, as well as custom workout APIs released in watchOS 4.2, to enable tracking of specialized metrics and the ability to find their friends on the mountain with a glance at the wrist.
An alternative headline—“This is what failure looks like”—would probably best describe great strides Apple Watch has made in less than three years towards becoming the best-selling wearable product on the market.
