YouTube Music lands on Apple Watch as WearOS shows signs of life

YouTube Music lands on Apple Watch as WearOS shows signs of life

It's been something of a busy week for YouTube Music. First, we saw a number of improvements for YouTube TV's smart TV implementation go live, with particular focus on improving the Android TV OS experience. Later that same day, Google took one more step toward making YouTube Music its main music streaming app by shutting down the Google Play Music Store. Now, to cap of this rather busy week (assuming there isn't some kind of YouTube Music roll out or update tomorrow), Google has put YouTube Music on the Apple Watch.

iPhone and Apple Watch GPS requires reset in recent update

iPhone and Apple Watch GPS requires reset in recent update

This week Apple Support released a note about GPS functionality on the Apple Watch and iPhone with the latest software update to each. This update seems to have created an issue with the pairing of iOS 14.0 and watchOS 7.0, requiring a relatively drastic fix to make it all function as intended. This oddity appeared after updating iPhone to iOS 14 and Apple Watch to watchOS 7 in late September.

Apple Watch SE Review – The Best Smartwatch for Most

Apple Watch SE Review – The Best Smartwatch for Most

Like with iPhone, Apple Watch is a family now, with 2020 bringing two new models targeting not only different price points but very different users, too. More affordable of the two, the Apple Watch SE bridges the gap between the flagship Apple Watch Series 6 and the cheapest Series 3 from 2017. As we saw with the iPhone SE, there's a balancing act required to combine the right set of features with the right price tag.

Apple Watch 3 watchOS 7 update causing random reboots

Apple Watch 3 watchOS 7 update causing random reboots

iOS updates in the past years haven't exactly been smooth sailing. In contrast to the earlier days of Apple's mobile platform, updates have been riddled by bugs right from day one, some of them more serious than others. It seems that even Apple Watches are no longer immune to this predicament as owners of the Apple Watch Series 3 have been complaining of random reboots ever since they upgraded to watchOS 7.

Apple Watch Series 6 vs Samsung Galaxy Watch 3: How do they compare

Apple Watch Series 6 vs Samsung Galaxy Watch 3: How do they compare

Apple Watch Series 6, the latest smartwatch with upgraded health monitoring features has landed. It is already being reckoned as the finest iteration of a smartwatch that has everything from looks to features and power to run it all. Samsung on the other hand with its Galaxy Watch 3 is shaping up as a worthy rival for the new Apple Watch. Both the watches will appeal to a different set of people, considering iPhone users will prefer the Apple Watch 6 and Android users don’t have an option to use the Apple Watch, leaving them to settle for the Galaxy Watch 3. The latter shouldn’t be counted out at least when we know iPhone users have an option to pair with the Samsung watch.

Apple Watch Solo Loop return policy changed after consumer backlash

Apple Watch Solo Loop return policy changed after consumer backlash

During these uneasy and uncertain times, the last thing that consumers need is a process that is inexplicably inconvenient for seemingly arbitrary reasons. One such process is getting the fancy new Solo Loop or Braided Solo Loop bands replaced if they happened not to fit your wrist. Before today, buyers had to either go to an Apple Store to get the band replaced or mail both band and Apple Watch back and wait for weeks or even months for a replacement. Fortunately, Apple seems to have had a change of heart but not after it was called out for it.

Apple Watches have to be returned if sized-to-fit bands don’t fit

Apple Watches have to be returned if sized-to-fit bands don’t fit

This year's Apple Watch generation didn't bring just two new models, the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Apple Watch SE. This year also saw two unique and admittedly pretty Solo Loop and Braided Solo Loop, both of which have no clasps or buckles and are designed to stretch and fit snugly over your wrist. Not all wrists are equal, of course, so there's an amount of personalization involved. Unfortunately, it seems that, at least for now, the bands may not be worth the hassle because of Apple's puzzling return policy.

Apple Watch SE first look – It’s a family thing

Apple Watch SE first look – It’s a family thing

The Apple Watch SE doesn't look like a "cheaper" Apple Watch. That's by design, of course, as Apple doubles-down on its best-selling smartwatch by turning it into a family, not just a single timepiece. As with the second-generation iPhone SE earlier this year, the Apple Watch SE offers cherry-picked features from the flagship - in this case the new Apple Watch Series 6 - but with a more attainable price tag.

AppleCare+ now offers better protection, lower deductibles

We live in uncertain times but the one thing that seems to be certain is the increasing prices of consumer electronics. At a time when we've become even more reliant on these products, the last thing we need is to worry about the consequences when, not if, accidents happen. Apple has always offered its customers to pay for some peace of mind but now it is throwing device owners a bigger bone with changes and improvements to its AppleCare+ protection plan policies.

Apple Watch Series 6 and SE – Differences, missing features and the fine print

Even without iPhone 12, Apple squeezed a lot into its hour-long Apple Watch and iPad event today. Enough, indeed, that some of the details about the Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE either got nudged into the fine print or left out altogether. Some of them will save you money, and some of them might just leave you scratching your head.
