27



watchOS 5, the operating system that runs on the Apple Watch, was introduced last week alongside iOS 12 and macOS Mojave. The update doesn’t include design changes or new watch faces, but it does introduce some fun new features that make the Apple Watch more useful than ever, like Walkie-Talkie.

We went hands-on with the new watchOS 5 update in our latest YouTube video to give MacRumors readers an idea of what to expect from the software when it launches this fall.

    I'd like an Apple Watch….. But I don't like wearing watches. Bit of a dilemma.

    Sweet.

    Great video, do you know or have you experienced any performance improvements similar to how they improved older iPhone performance on iOS 12? Also I didn't know you lived in Ohio, I live in Massillon.

  6. Patrick Keitt says

    Do you have to be on iOS 12 Thor all features to work?

    It’s not recording my exercise ring but it’s cool overall

    Calling this a “hands on” is a bit generous. You basically just keep showing shots of the website.

    After Apple Watch S3 LTE there is no real competition for "smart watches", it appears that trend is going to continue with watchOS 5's introduction. I'm looking forward to having it installed on my Apple Watch S3 LTE, and I'm wondering… will there be an Apple Watch 4 later this year?

    Cool features. Past few weeks I have usually been forgetting to end my workouts. I keep telling myself after my workout im going to end the workout. Then I end up not ending the workout until about 15 minutes later. lol hopefully watchOS 5 will help.
