WatchOS 3.2 arrives with SiriKit support and Theater Mode for developers



After the last watchOS update which bricked few of the Apple Watches, Apple has now made the watchOS 3.2 beta available for developers. This time around, however, few new features are making a debut with this update. The previously announced SiriKit and Theatre mode functionalities for Apple watches are now available with this so that they can be tested out. So if you are a developer, you should be seeing this update now and you can download and check it out as these are pretty great additions.

The SiriKit will allow developers with apps for audio/video calling, payments, messaging, booking rides, reserving tables, workouts, etc. to integrate with Siri. This will open up so many opportunities for users to use Siri effectively in many use case scenarios. For instance, if you need to reserve a table at a restaurant, then you can simply talk to Siri to get it done. The Theatre Mode, on the other hand, will make your watch theater friendly, meaning it will dim/ turn off the display and put it will mute the sound as well so that the person sitting next to you in the theater is not being bothered by your constant notifications and screen flashing on his/ her face.

The Theatre mode is also expected to debut in iPhones with iOS 10.3. Also, if you have used Android wear before, then you already know that this has been there in Android Wear since forever and it is indeed a must have feature. Do make a note that if you receive any notifications, then you still will be able to feel them through the haptic engine. You can then decide to act on the notification by tapping the display or pressing the digital crown. Alternatively, you also spin the digital crown to bring up the brightness of the display from its darkest setting.

Before installing the watchOS 3.2 beta, make sure your Apple watch is charged upto 50-percent and is stay connected to the charger until the update is finished. Also be sure to stay within the range of your iPhone. If you are a developer then you should be seeing the notification by now. Stay tuned for more info on this.
