Apple developing ‘Find my Watch’ for Apple Watch; new Apple TV larger in size?

Apple is currently working on a “Find my Watch” feature for Apple Watch, according to a 9to5Mac report. The feature would allow users to track the location of a Watch, or lock or swipe it remotely. It’s been noted recently that as it currently stands, Apple Watch lacks any meaningful anti-theft features. Reportedly, Apple will use “smart leashing” to implement Find my Watch — the Watch will send a signal to “establish its location native to the iPhone.” The report notes these features “could be farther off than others in development.” Some other future Apple Watch features noted in the report include a number of health and fitness additions — a blood pressure monitor and sleep tracking seem closest — and third-party watch face widgets known, strangely, as “Complications.” A new Watch OS could include Twitter Complications.

The report also has a few Apple TV details. Internal next-gen Apple TV prototypes are roughly “twice as large” as the current Apple TV, with the finished product expected to be thinner than the current set-top box. Also, a new version of XCode will include a “TVKit” SDK, which will allow developers to build third-party Apple TV apps. It’s still expected that Apple will debut the new Apple TV next month.

  1. Actually “complications” is not a strange name as it links to the world of mechanical clocks and watches. It refers to the display of anything beyond simple hours and minutes, living in Geneva one can step into any high end watch store to see some amazing examples. Even in the museums – when some clocks were sophisticated analog computers.
