Hey there, timekeepers and tech trendsetters! Get ready to wind back the clock, because Apple’s latest watchOS 10.2 beta is like a blast from the past, bringing back a beloved feature for your Apple Watch that’s as nostalgic as your favorite 90s sitcom.
Remember the good old days of watchOS 9, when changing your Apple Watch face was as easy as swiping left or right, like you’re browsing through potential dates on a dating app? Well, guess what? Apple, in a move that’s part ‘Oops, our bad’ and part ‘We hear ya,’ is bringing back that oh-so-satisfying swipe gesture.
That’s right, folks! With the third watchOS 10.2 beta, you can now relive the thrill of flipping through your watch faces with a flick of your wrist. Gone are the days of long-pressing and swiping like you’re cracking a safe. Apple’s decided that sometimes, the old ways are the best ways.
Now, for those of you who’ve embraced the world of Apple Watch, this might seem like a small change, but let’s face it: it’s the little things in life that bring us joy. Like finding an extra fry at the bottom of your fast-food bag, or your favorite song playing on the radio. It’s a small victory, but a victory nonetheless.
Switching watch faces with a swipe was the default in the good ol’ watchOS 9 days. But then, Apple, in a bid to avoid accidental face-swaps (the horror!), decided to add a few extra steps to the process in watchOS 10. But, as it turns out, sometimes you just can’t improve on a classic.
So, with watchOS 10.2, Apple’s giving you back the power to change your watch’s look as easily as you change your mind about what to have for dinner. Want to switch from a fitness-focused face to a fancy analog for your evening soirée? Swipe away! Feeling moody and want a watch face that matches your vibe? A simple flick of your finger, and voilà!
To get in on this time-traveling feature, just mosey on over to your Apple Watch’s Settings app, then tap on ‘Clock,’ and you’re golden. It’s like finding a secret menu at your favorite restaurant – exclusive, exciting, and oh-so-satisfying.
Now, keep in mind, watchOS 10.2 is still in beta, which in non-tech speak means it’s like a dress rehearsal. It’s available to both developers and public beta testers, so if you’re feeling adventurous, you can join in on the fun before the rest of the world catches up.
Expect to see watchOS 10.2 waltzing onto your wrist officially sometime in December. Just in time for the holidays, it’s like Apple’s little gift to you – the gift of convenience, wrapped up in a nostalgic bow.
So there you have it, watch aficionados! The simple joy of swiping through watch faces is making a comeback, proving that sometimes, the best new feature is an old favorite. Go ahead, give your Apple Watch a swipe – it’s like greeting an old friend you didn’t know you missed.
