Follow up boss: When the new Apple Watch Series 4 arrives on June 30, the head up display will be replaced with a new one that lets you control music playback and access notifications with the swipe of a finger.
While this is only the first of a handful of new features that will be added to the Apple Watch, the power up hub is a significant change in how we’ll interact with the device in the near future.
The new Apple TV remote will be a hub and a “new” Apple Watch face will be an icon on the Watch’s screen.
And Apple is even adding a new button to the Watch menu to enable or disable the watch’s notifications.
While the new Home button is a huge improvement over the old one, it’s not as much of a breakthrough as it could be.
As we’ve mentioned before, the Apple TV was already pretty limited in what it could do with the new device, and it wasn’t particularly easy to use in certain situations.
The watch will be able to do more with the content you’re watching, but it’s unlikely that we’ll see a lot of new apps or features in the new watch.
And even when it does come, it’ll likely still be a little on the restrictive side.
