    A dock, at last. Side button brings them up.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:10:46 PM
    "Add control center like on iOS. Swipe up from the bottom."
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:10:55 PM
    Swipe up on Apple Watch for a Control Center for basic settings. Goodbye Glances?
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:11:10 PM
    "We've also made a more powerful reply to messages. Dont' have to press reply, just hit reply."
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:11:18 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:11:20 PM
    "Sometimes you don't see exactly the response you like and you're not in a situation where you can use dictation."
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:11:32 PM
    replies: now there are are quick replies right away, AND a scribble input for handwriting...just like Android Wear 2.0
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:11:33 PM
    "Someting called scribble. Can respond by writing on the screen."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:11:39 PM
    You write the letters right on top of each other
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:11:51 PM
    "It's a great new way to respond just with the response you want on the watch."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:12:05 PM
    "We've had Mickey as a fun watch face on weekends. Minnie is coming to the watch." (about time)
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:12:06 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:12:12 PM
    Minnie hits Apple Watch...that's one new watch face
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:12:23 PM
    "One of the most frequent things people do is look at activity rings. New watch face to see activity through the day."
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:12:32 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:12:33 PM
    And at last, an Activity watch face. Which seemed like an obvious idea from the get-go
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:12:52 PM
    "Also added a simple new face we call numerals. Hours go around during the day. Can choose fonts that match your style."
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:12:56 PM
    Another watch face called Numerals, analog-digital hybrid
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:13:03 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:13:03 PM
    Making it super easy to switch watch faces. Can swipe to change the face you choose.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:13:16 PM
    "Added ability to add more complications (things like weather) to the watch face."
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:13:20 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:13:22 PM
    Swiping now brings up watch faces. Not Force Touch. Hmm.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:13:24 PM
    Time for a demo with Stacey (I didn't catch her last name)
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:13:45 PM
    Good job, Apple. Going less than 15 minutes and we've already seen a woman on stage. Think Google I/O took 40 mins.
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:13:59 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:14:10 PM
    We're just seeing all of this in a demo now.
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:14:24 PM
    The dock seems like the new Glances. A launcher and a quick-view mode. Which is what Glances was, sort of.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:14:39 PM
    "Even my favorite apps from the app store can be in my dock. Shows Lyft, for one."
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:14:41 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:14:51 PM
    "With one tap, I can call a car."
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:15:08 PM
    That Apple Watch side button used to bring up friends so you could send them heartbeats and such.
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:15:13 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:15:14 PM
    Reminders to keep all lists with you during the day. Bucket list as "present at WWDC on it."
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:15:31 PM
    Reminders is a new app for Apple Watch. Syncs with iOS
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:15:34 PM
    "Find my friends takes advantage of background updates so I always have the latest and greatest updates"
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:15:35 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:15:59 PM
    I wonder how much I'll accidentally swipe-change watch faces
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:16:04 PM
    "I can launch my workout right from the activity face."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:16:18 PM
    Quick start feature lets you bypass setting up a goal for workout
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:16:36 PM
    Notifications are accessed by pulling down from the top of the screen
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:16:40 PM
    Friends have been de-emphasized so far in watchOS 3
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:16:41 PM
    Scribble works in English and Chinese
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:16:48 PM
    Lots of foreign reporters around me are cheering
