I’ve been waiting for Apple to get some of the bigger bugs ironed out before taking the plunge and upgrading my iPhone XS Max and Watch Series 4. I can get away with a little wonkiness on my iPad Pro but my phone and watch are key to me staying on top of my job every day. That makes running the betas a bit more of a risk.
I’ve been hoping for Apple to give watchOS more capability and the Apple Watch more independence as the hardware has really come into its own. During the WWDC Keynote, we heard that an on-device App Store and dedicated apps that no longer have to be tied to the iPhone are coming to the Watch. These are certainly steps in the right direction. However, the rest of the feature rundown at the event was pretty expected: new Watch Faces and a couple of new Health and Fitness features. A new native Calculator app. Meh, but ok.
