Apple kicked off its fall media event with an exploration of updates coming to Apple Watch. Version 2 of watchOS will include several enhancements, such as Time Travel. Turning the Digital Crown forward previews one's entire day. In addition to third party complications, which can display an array of data right on the watch face, Transit will be added to map functions. Overall, there are 10,000 watch applications currently available.
According to rumors Tim Cook and team has a lot planned for Apple fans during its upcoming September 9th media event at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA. Not only is Apple going to unveil its new iPhone 6s, but the company is expected to announce its redesigned Apple TV and new Apple Watch Sport band colors, according to 9to5Mac.
When the Apple Watch was first revealed, speculation was rampant as to whether the wearable would be fully waterproof or not. Of course, Apple's official line is that the watch is splash and water resistant but not waterproof. With an official IPX7 rating submersion beyond one meter for 30 minutes is not recommended. The real-life experience of many users has shown that Apple Watch may exceed this rating, however swimming and diving could be risky.
100 Best Buy retail locations will begin carrying the Apple Watch beginning in August, according to the Wall Street Journal. Apple will then expand its Apple Watch shipments to over 300 outlets before the holidays. Best Buy will only carry the Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch editions. Apple fans will also be able to buy replacement bands and other Watch accessories at participating Best Buy locations.
The Apple Watch has its own unique design for incoming notifications. Jailbreakers now have the option to match this design on their iPhone lock screen thanks to the tweak WatchNotifications. Once installed, notifications on the lock screen will appear just like Apple Watch notifications, adding consistency between the two devices.
