“Apple has been working on its smartphone for over a decade, and iterating on that work going on eight years. Come this fall, we’ll almost certainly see a new generation of iPhone models — let’s call them iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, to stick to pattern — with iOS 9 to go with them,” Rene Ritchie writes for iMore.
“The Apple Watch, in contrast, has undergone related but distinct development for just about four years now. It’s Apple’s signature hardware — but wearable — and more importantly, it’s iOS, rethought for the wrist,” Ritchie writes. “Jony Ive, Kevin Lynch, and the teams working on the Watch have come up with features that could be, with the proper translations, just as compelling in the hand with your iPhone. Here are our top six we’d love to see brought over from Watch OS to iOS this fall.”
