Master Apple Watch widgets

Find out how to use the hot new feature in watchOS 10.

A lot of things have changed in watchOS 10, the biggest overhaul to the Apple Watch operating system since the device came out.

One of the biggest changes is Apple Watch widgets, which are a great new way to quickly access apps by swiping up or turning the Digital Crown when you’re on the watch face.

Widgets offer a quick and easy method for getting information and launching apps. Here's how to set them up for maximum benefit.

One more thing ...

I had a wonderful couple of weeks in Turin, which is this charged-up industrial town. The distributor took me every night to dinner at this place where there were only eight tables and no menu. You’d just tell them what you wanted, and they made it. One of the tables was on reserve for the chairman of Fiat. It was really super.
