Another operating system that Apple presented at WWDC 2023 is watchOS 10. Here you can find out the details of the most important innovations.

As the rumors suggested, widgets are coming to the Apple Watch. These appear by scrolling the digital crown on the watch face and look very similar to the iPhone, iPad and Mac widgets. The widgets shown always show relevant information, which is determined using machine learning. The dial always remains in the background.

For watchOS 10, Apple redesigned some apps. Among other things, the World Clock and the Activities app were given a new design. Also, app developers have the opportunity to style their apps with a new layout with quick actions in the corners of the screen. There are also two new dials: a colorful one and one with Snoopy.

Of course, new sports features should not be missing either, starting with improvements in recording bike tours. The Apple Watch can connect to selected bikes via Bluetooth. The watch can also determine the maximum power that can be exerted during a bike workout. On hiking tours, the compass now shows where you last had mobile phone reception. And there are new hiking maps, but only in the USA for the time being.

The Health app has also been given several new functions. Apple introduced a new section to track your mental health. This happens via a simple screen with predefined moods on the iPhone or via the Apple Watch. Another focus was on eye health, specifically on reducing myopia. In return, you are regularly reminded to spend time outdoors and to keep a greater distance from screens.
