I’ve just completed a big update to my book Take Control of Apple Watch to include the changes and improvements in watchOS 7 and the new Apple Watch Series 6 and SE models. From the outside, it looks like not a lot has changed in watchOS 7, but that’s not the case. As one example, Apple did away with the force-touch gesture that used to display additional options, like switching between the grid and list views of the app screen. Those options are still available, but sometimes spread throughout the system. (A new App View setting now controls how that screen appears.)
You can also share watch faces with other Apple Watch-owning friends, track your slumber habits using the new Sleep features, and set up watches for other people in your iCloud family group even if they don’t have an iPhone to pair it with (such as a child) using the new Family Setup feature.
If you already own Take Control of Apple Watch, this update is free: sign in to your account at Take Control Books to download the latest version from your library. For everyone else, the $14.99 cost is a great investment for 196 pages of in-depth information on how best to use the Apple Watch.
