There are over 2 million iOS apps, but less than 1% work on the Apple Watch. Learn how to use your existing skills (along with Xcode 9 and watchOS 4) to create Apple Watch apps.
- [Steven] There are over two million iOS apps in the App Store, and yet less than 1% of those work on the Apple Watch. With the Apple Watch dominating the wearables market, the time for watchOS development is now. Hi, I'm Steve Lipton. With Xcode 9, development tools for watchOS 4 have never been faster and easier. In this course, we'll look at the latest version of the Apple Watch operating system. I'll show you how you, as a developer, can use the tools and libraries in watchOS 4 in Xcode to create applications for the Apple Watch.
I'll show you how to build your first Apple Watch app in Xcode. I'll then show you how navigation between controllers work differently than iOS. I'll discuss using interface builder for watchOS layouts and introduce you to the watch's picker, dictation from the text control, and building tables. I'll demonstrate watch specific elements, such as haptics, and using the digital crown in your apps. We'll be covering all these features and more, so let's go take a look at the Apple Watch.
