With the Apple Watch due to go up for pre-order on April 10th and then go on sale two weeks later on the 24th, everyone’s attention is squarely on the latest wearable to capture the attention of the tech-loving world. Even though Apple has shown the watch off at two different events, there are still plenty of questions to be answered about the device and how it will work. Thankfully, we don’t always need Apple to answer those questions.
Take developer Hamza Sood as a fine example of that, because today, he has posted a short video that shows how the Apple Watch’s apps are managed on the device’s home screen using the companion iPhone app. He had previously posted screenshots of that app’s screens thanks to some clever hacking, and now he has shown us how we will be moving our apps around come the end of April.
Taken from the companion app that currently resides on the home screens of iOS 8.2, Sood’s video shows the expected app management method of tapping and holding in order to move apps around a simulated home screen inside the companion Apple Watch app. There is no wiggling to be found a la the iPhone and iPad, but apps do move themselves around to fill the gaps vacated when other apps are repositioned.
It’s possible that Apple will add the infamous icon wiggle in a future update, though we can’t say we would miss it too much if it never materialized. We suspect we may be in the minority there though.
We can’t wait to see what the Apple Watch makes possible following its release in just over a month, and we’ll be keeping you abreast of developments between now and then. We’re sure you are as excited to learn more about the Apple Watch too.
