WatchOS 6 to bring App Store on the wrist

WatchOS 6 features

We expect apple to unveil WatchOS 6 at the company’s Worldwide Developer Conference in June. This update will bring an independent App store, new complications and more health focused apps.

According to the report, the WatchOS update will bring the App Store to Apple Watch devices, allowing users to browse and download apps without using the app on the iPhone.

Healthy Apple Watch

Apple is also said to be working on two new health-related apps for the Watch: one dubbed “Dose” inside Apple for pill reminders and another called “Cycles” to track menstrual cycles.

I also expect to see updated Health and fitness apps as iOS 13 rumours suggest improvements in this area.
