I have an Apple Watch s0 which runs on watchOS 4.x. Can it be used together with iOS 13?
I don’t see any technical reason that it wouldn’t. It should work just fine.
I want to make it sure. Apple has a history of not saying the dark sides.
So does EVERY OTHER company.
But for compatibility standpoint, watchOS 4 should be supported with iOS 13 but few can tell at this point.
WatchOS 6 is not supported on Apple Watch Series 0. Apple ended support last year with WatchOS 5. The Apple Watch Series 1 - Series 4 are fully supported by Apple’s latest OS.
That's correct...but not what the OP was asking. They want to know if a Series 0 Watch, which is forever stuck on WatchOS 4, will run paired with a phone running iOS 13.
It won't be a problem, compatibility issues happen the other way around. If you had a newer watch but older iOS for example. Or if you tried to sync an iPhone running iOS 12 with a Mac running Yosemite. Stuff like that.
Oh. Sorry. Ha. I believe so yes. I don’t have access to the beta, but the watch connects via Bluetooth. I don’t see any issues as to why it won’t work.
I have installed iOS 13 beta 2 and here is the good news and bad news.
Apple Watch s0 could pair with iOS 13 beta 2.
Apple Watch s0 no longer interoperate with Reminder after you upgrade it to iOS 13 format. You can get Reminder notification, but it is just an alert window. You no longer can choose actions like finish and delays.
That bad news work for all macOS prior to Catalina and all iOS version prior to iOS 12 as well. Don’t upgrade to newer reminder feature unless a good amount of your key device can be upgraded.
The sad thing is that the upgrade process alerted me that I have other iOS devices and Macs need to upgrades to the latest version, but it didn't mention that watchOS is not compatible. All of them are connected to the same iCloud account. Apple shouldn't miss that.
Also, from a developers point of view, the action buttons of the notification on the Apple Watch side are delivered from the counterpart on iOS, so the missed action buttons are intended instead of incompatibility.
