Apple fans who are desperately waiting for the release of Apple Watch so they can have a good look at the new wearable device can now get to see how the Apple Watch is going to function with iPhone.
The iPhone application that is going to connect the iPhone and the Apple Watch has been leaked and the screenshots of the apps reveal almost everything an Apple Watch fan wants to know about its functioning.
The app is known as ‘Companion’ which will let an Apple Watch user manage the settings of the watch and the connectivity with the iPhone. The screenshots of Companion’s commands are shown by Apple-centric website 9to5 Mac.
The iPhone Companion application will give a virtual view of the Apple Watch homescreen on the iPhone screen so the user can manage and organize apps on the smaller screen of Apple Watch properly.
When the entire tech world is talking about customization, Apple has also joined the bandwagon but with only one feature of Apple Watch as of now. The clock face has got new feature called Monogram that makes your clock look more personalized with your initials. A user can include a digitally embedded stamp of 1 to 4 letters on the clock face.
As the watch screen is very small to show the notifications arriving in your iPhone, a subtle red dot is added to guide you to the notifications. As soon as your iPhone receives a notification the red dot appears on top of the Apple Watch’s clock. To keep the red dot notification on, you will have to keep the notification indicator enabled.
Apple seems to have figured out the solution to deliver better performance in the small wearable device. The lack of space for a keyboard has been solved by voice command. Users will be able to respond to messages via voice.
It’s not just about responding to messages, the text appearing on the screen will also be read by the Apple Watch with its VoiceOver feature. Enabling the feature looks so simple that a user can raise the arm or double tap on the screen to get it started.
9to5 Mac found out these details about the iPhone ‘Companion’ app for Apple Watch while working on the iOS 8.2 beta. Though the details and screenshots look so promising, there is very strong possibility that by the time Apple launches the Apple Watch many of the functions and options will either be updated or change completely.
