WatchOS 2: Muting Activity Alerts

The Government Is Trying To Hack Your iPhone

Apple finally released its long-awaited WatchOS 2 update Monday after it had initially scheduled the launch for September 16 together with the iOS 9. Whole Foods is basically the same. And it's clearer whether you've already earned credit for standing during a given hour. You no longer have to refer to your iPhone for the results. But adding bank cards from major banks is relatively painless and straightforward.

As another display option, Apple has also added a timelapse feature which shows users scenes from cities around the world with skylines changing according to the time of the day. While the calls go through the phone, you never have to take the phone out of your pocket. The Watch app times your exercises, alerting you when you need to switch to a new routine and alerting you when to finish a session.

However, now that the problem has been taken care of, the new WatchOS 2 is now ready and available for download. In addition, the watch now works with Wi-Fi, extending how far you can go without a phone with you.


Note: though this started rolling out on a trial basis earlier from some carriers, it is expected to accelerate on watchOS 2. And Siri - Apple's voice-activated intelligent assistant - can place the calls for you.

Beyond that, the watch update lets you reply to email and set more than 12 friends as favorites. Then dictate a response - or send an emoji or choose from a list of preset replies. You can use photos, although this can sometimes make it hard to see the overlaid clock. So, your Apple ID and password will be required before anyone can unpair your Apple Watch from your iPhone or Pair and use your Apple Watch with a new iPhone. These however do not say much about what the Apple watch can now do with Apple WatchOS 2-the real changes are broiled in even deeper.

To force-restart your Apple Watch, you need to press both the side button and the Digital Crown for 10 seconds or more, until the Apple logo appears on the Watch's screen. But it's progress. The splits aren't displayed on the watch, though, but in the Activity app on the phone after you sync your workout. Apple apps have had the ability to run natively on the watch, meaning they can access sensors and controls directly and aren't merely extensions of phone apps. While it's still early days, we've seen what they can do - and we (mostly) like it.

If the above steps haven't been able to revive your Apple Watch, and the device freezes during start up or displays a red exclamation mark while it turns on, the only thing you can do is to get in touch with Apple Support because they're the only ones that can help you with a faulty Apple Watch unit.


Streaks; Your New Year resolutions are now just at the top of your wrist because Streaks is now one of the apps that will be making use of the watch face complications. For instance, GoPro will let you use the watch as a viewfinder for its camera, but not for a few more months. This won't happen right away but expect apps like Facebook and a variety of health-related apps to get better and better over time.
