According to a report from Bloomberg, Apple is reportedly set to bring significant changes to its popular Apple Watch device this year. The company is set to introduce new features as part of watchOS 10, with a new focus on widgets at the forefront of these changes.

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman detailed the upcoming changes in his latest Power On newsletter, stating that the new user interface in watchOS 10 will include support for widgets as a “central part” of the Apple Watch interface. The new design is described as “reminiscent of the Siri watch face” and is similar to the “widget stacks” feature currently available on iPhones and iPads.

As previously discussed, watchOS 10 will get an interface update, and macOS 13.4 will include new Macs.

Users can scroll through various widgets, including weather, activity, stock quotes, calendar appointments, and more, rather than launching specific applications. The new interface will also be available as an overlay for any watch face.

The primary goal of this new design is to give users “faster access to bits of information” without needing to open special applications. In addition to the new widget interface, Apple is also reportedly considering changing the Apple Watch’s digital crown feature. In watchOS 10, the Digital Crown would open a new widget interface instead of taking users to the Apple Watch home screen.

This new feature is similar to the initial release of the Browse feature in the Apple Watch, where Glances would appear when users swiped up from the bottom of their device. However, Apple ultimately dropped this feature in future watchOS updates. With these new changes, Apple hopes to provide users with a more efficient and streamlined experience when using the Apple Watch.
