    I'm interested in installing watchOS 2 beta because it provides much more functionality without an iPhone. All I wanna know is whether Apple's own apps have been updated for watchOS 2 to work without an iPhone, using known Wi-Fi networks. Apps like Remote, Mail, Weather, Maps, Calendar and Reminders alerts.

    1.Remote: can I control my Apple TV and iTunes library without iPhone being connected neither Bluetooth, nor Wi-Fi?
    2. Mail: can I receive my e-mails via Wi-Fi and without iPhone?
    3. Weather: same thing, does it work over Wi-Fi?
    4. Maps: can I look up something and just use Maps without iPhone?
    5. Calendar and Reminders alerts: can I get them without iPhone?

    so basically you mean that there is still red crossed phone everywhere on these apps, indicating that iPhone is not connected, right?
