According to a fresh report coming from AppleInsider publication, it seems that Apple is working to introduce two new useful features in the second generation of watchOS - internet connectivity independent of the iPhone and push-capable complications.
The website claims that this fall, the Apple Watch will gain an expanded ability to connect to known Wi-Fi networks independently. Thus, Apple Watch owners won't have to rely so much on their iPhones for various functions of the smartwatch.
Third-party developers will finally be able to write apps to run natively on the watch and the standalone connectivity will allow them to quickly refresh their own app data.
