Apple at the 2019 Worldwide Developers Conference introduced watchOS 6, the latest version of the software designed for the Apple Watch. watchOS 6 brings some notable improvements to watchOS, including new apps, a dedicated App Store, new watch faces, updated health features, and tons more.

watchOS 6 is limited to developers and won’t be available as a public beta ahead of its fall launch, so we thought we’d take a look at the software to give MacRumors readers a hands-on look at what’s coming to the watch later this year.

You may already use Apple Pay with your iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. However, it’s also a great fit for your Mac.

Buy with Apple Pay

Buy with Apple Pay

But let’s back up. In case you’re not familiar with Apple Pay, it’s the tech giant’s mobile payment and digital wallet service/app that lets you make payments in person, in apps, or on the web. You can use it to buy stuff, subscribe to Apple Music, upgrade your iCloud store, and more. 

Apple Pay digitizes and can replace a credit or debit card chip and PIN transaction at a contactless-capable point-of-sale terminal. It doesn’t require Apple Pay-specific contactless payment terminals; it works with any merchant that accepts contactless payments.

You can use Apple Pay in Safari on your Mac to shop easily and securely. However, first you need to set up your credit or debit card on the desktop or laptop you’ll use

To say Apple’s WWDC 2019 keynote was jam-packed would be an understatement. Apple offered its usual previews of the next versions of iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS, but it also broke some new ground. The iPad now has its own operating system, for starters. There were also meaningful updates to the HomePod and a new privacy-focused sign-in. And of course, there’s the not-so-small matter of the redesigned Mac Pro — Apple has finally shown its long-in-the-making workstation. It’s a lot to take in. Never fear, though, as we’ve boiled things down to a shorter video that gives you the gist of Apple’s many, many announcements.

The Apple Watch is about to become that much more independent from your iPhone. Apple has introduced watchOS 6, and its centerpiece is an on-device App Store — yes, you can download apps to your wrist without having to reach for your handset. There are apps that can exist wholly independently of the iPhone, Apple said. You can also expect a slew of new first-party apps that fill in longstanding gaps in functionality, including Audiobooks, Voice Memos and (at last) a calculator.

SAN JOSE, Calif.—At its developer conference today, Apple described its new Apple Watch software features in detail. Called watchOS 6, the operating-system update adds new apps, watchfaces, and features that enhance the ways users are already putting their Apple Watches to good use.

Arguably the biggest update coming to the Apple Watch is the new on-watch App Store. In watchOS 6, you’ll be able to browse, purchase, and download apps directly from the App Store on the Watch. That means users don’t need to turn to their iPhones to download and install apps that they may have on their iPhones already on their Watches.

Going hand-in-hand with an on-watch App Store is the new ability for developers to make independent apps for the Apple Watch. Currently, all Apple Watch apps must have an iOS app installed on the Watch’s paired iPhone in order for them

Finally, I can use my iPhone to ride the NYC subway

This morning, as I’ve done regularly since moving to New York City years ago, I left my Brooklyn apartment to head to Engadget headquarters in Manhattan. In an ideal world, I would’ve been able to use my iPhone to get through the turnstile at my nearby subway station. But, even though the MTA is now supporting contactless payments services such as Apple Pay, only a handful of stations and buses have so far been upgraded to the new One Metro New York (OMNY) system. The one close to my apartment isn’t one of them. Still, I wanted to get the full experience beyond a quick demo from Apple. Thankfully, there’s a subway station near our office that has the tap-to-pay turnstiles.
