And, finally, those in Ireland with a lot of disposable cash can pick up the Apple Watch Edition 38mm version for the bargain price of €11,300, while the 42mm is just €13,300. The report stated that the bug was taking longer to fix than the developers had anticipated, thus the delay.
These apps will also be able to run without an immediate connection to your phone, something only first-party apps could do before. After eating, you dictate what you ate to the Lark app on your watch.
With yesterday’s launch of watchOS 2, Apple has brought a whole new lease of life to its pretty little wrist ‘puter. On the Apple Watch, both the free and paid ($1.99) versions of the app provide an ISS complication so that you can see the next ISS flyover time.
An interesting feature of time-lapse is the video will start with the sun at the same point in the sky as the user’s current location. It allows app developers access the sensors on the Apple Watch and work without the iPhone.
Clearly the omission was noted by many and now you can make FaceTime audio calls on your Watch.

Opening this menu offers all the usual favourites – winky face, smiley poo – as well as a couple of oversized, animated offerings.
One of the most quirky features on Apple Watch was the ability to not only share your heart beat with other Watch wearers, but to send them doodles. Perhaps an album with all your kids or your favourite places or something completely different. Again, you’ll need to delete the iOS 9 Beta profile. These enhancements address many of my initial frustrations with the watch.
TechInsider said that the Nightstand mode makes the watch an alarm clock when it is placed on its side and is connected to a charger. Sprint will begin selling the Apple Watch on September 25 (the same day the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus go on sale). The screen gently brightens in the minutes leading up to an alarm, and you still get your charging details.
That changes in WatchOS 2. Now in the settings you have the chance to extend this to 70 seconds.
Apple recommends you turn these settings off if you’re sending your devices in for service or passing them on to someone else. It is an issue we most notably had with Shazam.
