A month ago, a report surfaced about Apple’s plans for major improvements to watchOS 10, with no further details. A new leak today digs a little deeper into the next Apple Watch software release and also touches on what we can expect at Apple’s WWDC conference this year.
According to Bloomberg, Apple will bring back widgets and make them a central building block of watchOS 10. Both interactive and context-related widgets should be available. The new interface will likely be similar to the Siri watch face and widget stacks introduced in iOS and iPadOS. The report also suggests that the digital crown will handle opening widgets instead of sending the user back to the home screen.
In addition, Apple is said to be working on a new AI-powered health coaching service called Quartz. So we’ll likely see deep integration with Quartz as well. All in all, watchOS 10 is expected to be the biggest update since Apple Watches were launched and will therefore be in the spotlight at this year’s WWDC. However, the premiere of Apple’s first mixed reality headset is still waiting. We will know more by June 5th at the latest.
