    Apple watchOS 10 Double Tap on latest watches only – disappointing

    The instant I saw the Double Tap feature on watchOS 10 I thought gimmick (unless of course it is being used as an accessibility aid in which case it's fantastic). Less than a minute later, however, I quickly changed my initial opinion and realised just how useful this could potentially be in...

    All iPads Unlock iPad Pro with Apple Watch - appears as search item but not visible in settings

    It's a bit niche but I thought I would see if I could set my iPad Pro to unlock when I was nearby with my Apple Watch on. Search in settings and it appears but it isn't visible on the actual settings page the search links to. Is this a bug or intentional?

    Can I use an Apple Watch without an iPhone?

    Hello, I'm new here and I have a question about Apple Watch SE 2. I just received this watch and when I try to charge it it says "Bring iPhone near Apple Watch". I don't have an iPhone, my phone is a Samsung S21 Ultra. Can I start and use this watch if I don't have an iPhone. From what I see, I...

    Camera Remote app on Apple watch closes camera app on iPhone when switching apps on watch

    Has anyone else noticed the inconsistent interaction between Apple Watch's camera remote app and iPhone's camera app? If the iPhone is locked(A) or the camera app was opened after unlocking the phone(B) and then you open the camera remote app on the Apple Watch, you can preview what the camera...

    how long does it take to change AWS4 battery in the USA?

    My Apple Watch 4 battery health has dropped to 70% and I've started noticing how often I need to charge it. I'm curious about what the replacement procedure is and how long it takes. I have an Apple Store near me, but I don't know if they will service it there with a 1 hour or so wait, or if...

    Hey there! New here. After a few hours of disappointing Googling, I hope to receive some direction or advice as to if this is even possible. I would like to create a WatchOS face or use tools to piece together my face. Just curious if this is even possible or not. Many of the tools recommended...

    Apple Watch Series 10/X Speculation Thread

    The AW has received largely incremental updates for the past several years, doling out an occasional new sensor here and there, refining the design with larger screens, and more rarely an SIP update once in a blue moon. They then introduced the Ultra last year as a higher end, more enthusiast...

    iPhone Running personal records

    I cannot recommend the Workout Sessions app enough for tracking e.g. your personal records for e.g. running, cycling or for other workouts. It has no ads, tracking (unless you want it to use GPS), uses Apple Health data e.g. retrieved from Apple Watch but also works great with Garmin watches...

    Ultra Lat/Long Complication

    Anyone else have the lat/long on the ultra always reading blank and says “updating”? One of the most useful features to me would have having the current lat/long displayed on my watch face - believe it or not. It’s pretty frustrating that it NEVER seems to work and I’ve tried updating my...

    Do you use Apple Watch to unlock your Mac?

    Do you guys use Apple Watch to unlock your Mac, when you have Touch ID in the Mac? (And why?) For me using the Touch ID makes more sense (and is prob more secure)
