Apple announces watchOS 4 Apple Watch update

Apple unveiled the WatchOS 4 with a variety of new features, today at WWDC event.

For instance, a new Siri watch face aims to predict information you'll need throughout your day.

There were a number of new watchfaces introduced this morning, including those featuring Disney characters from "Toy Story", and a trippy kaleidoscope one, but the most intriguing was the watchface that integrated Siri on your smartwatch's home screen.

Finally, the watchOS 4 can run more apps in background and this would benefit developers which may now use background navigation and audio recording, among other new APIs. This makes no sense to team INQ, but Apple tells us it's added high-intensity interval training and that new workouts can be added during a current workout with a press of the new "plus" button.

Diane Abbott fails to list measures against terror
JEREMY CORBYN has been accused of "hiding away" shadow home secretary Diane Abbott following another embarrassing TV interview. Dermot Murnaghan: "Well he suggested they should amalgamate..." She said: "Yes, I think physical resilience is important".

The music app was also revamped with the aim of delivering more data and music at a glance. For Crossfitters or triathletes there's also the ability to easilt add a different workout to the same session for those involved in multiple activities. Simply put, Apple is riffing on Siri and the Apple Watch just like Amazon and Google talk about Alexa and Google Assistant, respectively.

The Workout app has a new interface too, and an easier Quick Start feature.

"Apple Watch is created to help you live a healthier life", CEO Tim Cook said, "and people are absolutely loving the fitness capabilities, the health capabilities, the quick access to information, and even the ability to swim with it".

And there's a new flashlight mode in the Control Center that also doubles as an emergency flasher. We're enabling, for the first time, two-way data exchange in real time with gym equipment. Moreover, by linking your watchOS 4-powered device with a compatible piece of gym equipment, you'll also be able to get a more accurate reporting of heart-rate, incline, and other key details about your workout. It is available in developer preview from today and will be coming to all users this autumn. The watchOS 4 upgrade will be available this fall as a free upgrade.
