MacFormat’s top five features
Your home for apps was never going to work in a static fashion like iOS devices. So, Apple’s quickly scrollable Home screen is the perfect solution. Although tiny, those round app icons are easy to press individually.
With such a small screen space, the Digital Crown not only fixes the problem of covering the screen with a finger, it also enhances apps. In Maps it’s better than pinch-to-zoom, and the Contacts wheel is a joy to use.
With the clock as your main screen, you don’t want to always press one of the buttons to bring up info or an app. Swiping up from the bottom of the clock screen gives you quick access to Settings and up to 20 apps.
Workout is the app for runners and cyclists, but your general fitness is logged with the simple and beautiful Activity app. Set your goals and track progress in detail with the companion app that’s installed on your iPhone.
It’s not been talked about much, but one swipe up from the clock screen and you’ll get Settings as your first Glance. Here you can activate Airplane Mode and more, and ping your iPhone if you’re not sure where you put it down.
