“Yesterday, we reported that the latest iOS 8.2 beta reveals that an Apple Watch application for the iPhone is in the works,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.
“Now, we have some more details. Within Apple, the application is currently called the Apple Watch ‘Companion’ app for iPhone,” Gurman reports. “This application manages settings for Apple Watch applications, as well as settings for iPhone/Watch interactivity.”
“The Companion app’s settings reveal some novel new functions that are coming to the Apple Watch,” Gurman reports. “Within the Companion app, the About Screen for the Apple Watch will show storage capacity, the number of songs stored on the device, the number of photos stored on the device, the number of apps on the Watch, and device serial number, Bluetooth, and WiFi details. This confirms that the Watch will have usable storage space. Apple has previously said that users can store music on the device itself, though photos were not explicitly mentioned in much detail aside from saying favorited photos will appear.”
