Apple's watchOS 2, which rolled out to all remaining September, introduced quite a lot of enhancements to the Apple Watch platform, together with giving third-party apps get right of entry to to sure hardware and tool options that have been in the past inaccessible to developers.

Most significantly, on the other hand, watchOS 2 lets in developers to construct apps that run natively at the Apple Watch itself. General, this ends up in a lot speedier efficiency from a given app by way of getting rid of the want to movement knowledge between the Watch and a hooked up iPhone. As extra native apps populate the app retailer, the revel in will have to best recover for Apple Watch customers.
