"Three amazing platforms. The opportunities really are limitless."
(software revamp, I mean)
"we can't wait to see what you do with Watch OS."
So, sounds like a revamp of Apple Watch in time for, probably, new iPhones in fall.
Developer beta now available, and it will all come in fall (watchOS 2, and native apps)
"Available in the fall to everyone. Will work across all watches and will be free."
"This stuff is all available to you today to start building these native apps."
"Some great new enhancements coming."
Vine on Apple Watch...kinda crazy.
"I'm super excited to see what all of you guys do with this stuff."
"Let's look at the Vine Glance. Great example of playing back video on the watch."
"Very fast interact now with different controls you have available."
"I can also reply with stickers. Different categories of them."
"a lot of messages sent via WeChat are audio messages. I can reply here just by pressing the reply button. Audio response. 'that sounds great'"
Hope microphone access means voice memos
"VW app. Can lock car by pressing control here. I can control the temperature here by rotating the crown. really really cool. Got confirmation it actually enabled that on my car."
VW app: full car controls, and it seems to load fast.
"Just by pressing the crown, you can use Siri to send a message from your wrist."
replying to email by voice...always take care, from my experience.
"If get an email, can reply to email on Watch OS 2. Can reply by pressing the button right below the message. Or use Siri to reply."
"Let's look at time travel. .. flight times on united, can see temperature. ... My flight's leaving at 1:45, I wonder if car's charge level is enough to get to airport. Can get a great preview of day just by rotating crown right on watch face."
Time Travel: again, very reminiscent of what Pebble Time introduced, in some ways.
Making a photo watch face, can zoom and crop. This is the new "check out my kid" wallet photo on wrist
"Making a photo face. Home screen, can see photos. Can pick a photo that might make a watch face. Can zoom in and crop it. ... Force touch, choose create watch face and there you go, beautiful new watch face."
Three examples of new features in Watch OS 2
"We've done a great job of bringing a lot of access to the watch with native apps." Demo time
all the things we expected, and Apple's own apps take advantage of.
"Great interaction on watch is using digital crown on UI. Enabling access. Can change temperature just by rotating the digital crown."
Audio, video, HealthKit access, streaming heart rate data for apps, HomeKit directly on watch, accelerometer, taptic engine access...(audio and vibration) and digital crown for third-party apps.
"Taptic Engine is one of the things we've done a lot of work with. .. Will be able to get access to."
