Apple Watch is back in the attention of Apple fans with a brand new series of updates. The developers were focused more on improving the Siri feature even more than before. The year of 2017 seems to be conquered by a young and growing industry of voice-controlled gadgets. Apple Watch is surely among the winners in this race. Its beta version will allow app makers even more freedom around the functions of their applications. However, by far the most useful update will be the theater mode that will be of great benefit for drivers and those who love to track down their sleeping patterns.
Apple Watch was before advertised as a great fitness tracker but also as a sleeping tracker. However, the gadget was not as seamless as people wanted it to be. First off, consumers had to go to sleep with the gadget wrapped around their wrists. Feeling pressure around the hand may go unnoticed during the day. However, during night time, people need to feel fully comfortable for a good night’s rest. This is why most Apple clients were not so satisfied with their gadgets. Moreover, every time they toss and turn, some of them that are sensitive to light were waking up as the display of the watch was turned on by these movements.
However, Apple Watch beta is now introducing the theater mode. This prevents the display to shed light even when the users move their wrists frantically. The gadget had from the beginning a similar function called Do Not Disturb, but it isn’t as efficient as the new update. With the old feature, users were able only to silence notifications. Until now, the Apple Watch could have been considered a nuisance during times like theater visits or yoga sessions. Every time the users moved their wrists, the display turned on no matter the situation.
The Theater Mode will finally allow its owners to stop disturbing the people around them. For the moment, this is a beta version of the watchOS 3.2 which means that it is only available for developers. This segment can gain access to Siri through the newly introduced SiriKit. This will allow many businesses to make themselves available to consumers with only a voice command. While there is no official release for users too, Apple fans are still excited about the news.
