After the official release of watchos 7 in autumn, apple watch users will be able to run quick commands on Apple watch without iPhone connection, which greatly expands the function of watch.
The shortcut instructions on Apple watch are expected to provide powerful one click triggers for complex operations, such as running Apple music playlists, controlling homekit devices, requesting Siri processes, etc. Many of these features will be used on Apple's wearable devices for the first time through watchos 7.
On Monday, Apple announced support for Siri shortcut instructions for watchos, although it could not elaborate on how the feature works. Specifically, it is not clear whether the shortcut instruction will be provided on the apple watch as a stand-alone native operation or as a remote trigger when bound to the iPhone.
Apple answered the question at Friday's developer conference, noting that watch can run fast commands locally without connecting to the iPhone.
There are some factors in the processing of shortcut instructions. First, consider the type of shortcut instruction. If the operation is nsuseractivity, watchos 7 looks for the running host application. Missing the application will result in an error message. Similarly, the express instructions are intended to be processed locally on the watch through application extension, or remotely on the iPhone as a backup.
The new quick instruction application provides users with the ability to synchronize IOS, ipados and watchos through icloud. In watchos 7, the shortcut command can also be used as a complex function of the dial.
