When ‘WatchOS’ finally gets Android 8.0 (Oreo)
WatchOS 7 has finally got Android 8, and it’s here to stay.
The platform is available for pre-order now on Apple’s online store, and will be available for purchase in stores from August 28.
While the OS itself is the most important aspect, the update is also a boon for developers, as it’s an improvement over the current version of the OS.
The biggest improvement comes from the UI and user experience, which are both more fluid, with animations and transitions smoothed out.
The main changes to the OS are the introduction of new widgets, and a new look and feel that brings with it an entirely new look, which should improve the user experience.
WatchOS 7 also includes a new user interface, which is completely redesigned.
While you will still see a familiar watch face and app icon, it’s now very easy to navigate the OS without having to look for it.
The app switcher is also gone, and you can now toggle between all the widgets at once.
The new UI also includes an improved notification panel, which now has its own icon and an icon in the top left corner.
It’s an upgrade over the older notification panel on previous versions of the watchOS, and helps to ensure that notifications don’t distract you from the watch’s main task.
This is just the start of the updates WatchOS will bring, and if you’re looking forward to this update, there’s more to come.
WatchOS 8 will launch on August 26.
