Are you going to buy an Apple Watch? Well, whether you’re tempted or not, you will have the Apple Watch app on your phone as soon as you download iOS 8.2.
If you’re not planning to buy the Watch, Apple is hoping to wear you down over time. The Apple Watch app can’t be deleted. The best you can do is hide the app in a miscellaneous folder.
The Apple Watch app enables the pairing and syncing of the smartwatch to the handset. It also lets users keep an eye on data recorded by the wearable, including steps walked and heart rate.
iOS 8.2 also includes a variety of improvements for Apple’s Health app. Apple says that the Health app will run better on devices running iOS 8.2 thanks to the inclusion of a number of stability improvements and fixes. Users will also be able to select the unit of measurement for distance, body temperature, height, weight, and blood glucose. And there’s a new privacy setting for the tracking of steps, distance, and flights climbed.
The iOS 8.2 update is available to download now and clocks in at around 443MB.
