Heads up for folks with an original (Series 0) Apple Watch. The watchOS 5 update, which Apple announced earlier today during its WWDC keynote, will not support the older hardware. Everyone else is safe though: watchOS 5 supports Series 1, 2 and 3 models.
WWDC 2018 has officially kicked off with the annual keynote address. Although we weren’t treated to any new hardware at this popular event, there was a lot covered on the software front. Here’s a look back at the highlights. Come back to this page often in the coming days for more information on WWDC 2018.
Apple’s Kevin Lynch is on stage at the WWDC 2018 keynote and he’s just announced watchOS 5, the next major operating system version for Apple Watch. The update brings about a wide range of new features and improvements, including Competitions, new Workout types, and a new app called Walkie-Talkie.
The Spotify app for Apple Watch could be unveiled at WWDC 2018, in June. The app would take advantage of a new watchOS 5 framework called StreamKit, allowing cellular Apple Watch models to stream music and receive notifications from third-party apps independently of their paired iPhone.
