Apple Watch will be able to control some Whirlpool appliances later this year

Whirlpool’s Wi-Fi-connected ovens, washers and dryers will be able to be controlled from the Apple Watch sometime later this year, CNET reports. The Whirlpool app for Apple Watch will be able to control more than 20 of the company’s smarthome appliances — a first for the Apple Watch, which has been previously linked to gym equipment but never to these types of appliances. Users will be able to check the temperature or change settings in their oven, change the settings on a washer mid-cycle or monitor the progress of a drying cycle, all from their wrist.
