    Apple has announced that watchOS 7 will be available for series 3 and later. This means that the latest update for series 1 and 2 will be whatever the last version of watchOS 6 that is released.

    Apple has dropped support for Force Touch in watchOS 7. Developers have been told to update their apps to allow for this.
    An example of Force Touch is when you press hard on the home screen and get a menu that allows you to choose between grid view and list view for your app display. Now, to change between grid view and list view you have to open the Watch app on your iPhone and go to App view and make your selection there. The change can no longer be done on the watch itself.

    Apple now allows sharing of watch faces with others. The person receiving the shared watch face can install it on his Apple Watch.
    To share a watch face, long press on the watch face and press the share button then add the contact information for the recipient and a message. BTW, Customize is now called Edit.
