    Hmmm...another device that's always listening. Designed with "privacy in mind" they say...

    Apple will have a feature to monitor environmental noise -- to infom you if the environmental sound is too loud. And it's built for privacy. It only periodically samples sound, and never records or saves audio.

    Cycle tracking for menstrual cycles comes to Watch and Health, like what Fitbit has. WatchOS 6 shows on wrist.

    Cycle Tracking also in iOS, no watch needed
  • James Martin 6/3/2019 5:21:34 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 5:21:35 PM
    Apple will also have Cycle Tracking -- A simple and discrete way to track your cycles. And you can get Fertile Window predictions.
    It's also going to be available in the Health App in iOS if you don't have an Apple Watch, btw.

    Scott? Ian? Roger? Jason? Shank? Eli? Which one of us is writing that up?

    Lynch back on stage. 
    Lynch: The health app is the best way to see all your health data in one place.
  • James Martin 6/3/2019 5:22:12 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/3/2019 5:22:35 PM
    Health App has been redesigned. A new summary view with info and highlights at a glance. Charts over time now at forefront. Uses ML to determine what’s interesting to you.
  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 5:22:54 PM
    The new App will have a summary of you with info like heart rate recovery, mindfulness. 
    And Lynch is reminding us that all the data is encrypted on the iPhone or in the cloud.

    I like the Modular Compact watch face. Kind of analog/digital.
  • dan.ackerman 6/3/2019 5:23:43 PM
    "Rich Complications" should be the name of my next album.
  • James Martin 6/3/2019 5:23:50 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/3/2019 5:24:14 PM
    Infograph Modular watch face gets...monochrome. Ok!
  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 5:24:21 PM
    Now for a demo. Walking us through one of the new watch faces.
    And there's a new monochrome color option for some of the watch faces -- so it's all white and red for example.

    Gradient watch face. Nice looking. But WHERE IS THE WATCH FACE STORE
  • James Martin 6/3/2019 5:24:51 PM
  • dan.ackerman 6/3/2019 5:24:58 PM
    Isn't black+white+red duotone, not monochrome?
  • James Martin 6/3/2019 5:25:10 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 5:25:17 PM
    Now we're looking at the new App Store. Ratings, screenshots and download directly to the watch.

    MLB app now streams games on watch. This will be cool for sports radio. (When I don’t have my phone...)
  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 5:25:54 PM
    Showed off the MLB app and its ability to stream audio from a game.

    Other features: Spoken navigation in Maps. Automatic software updates on the watch.
    Also, Apple's got new "summer colors" watch bands, including a pride watch band (which got attention when it was given out to Apple employees a while back)
  • Scott Stein 6/3/2019 5:26:45 PM
    New rainbow Pride band. Apple has launched other bands w Pride around this Timex too
  • James Martin 6/3/2019 5:27:05 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/3/2019 5:27:08 PM
    Well, that was it for watch. Now iOS.
