Though it may only be a few months old, the Apple Watch is already set to receive an update with the release of a new operating system: watchOS 2. Packed full of new features, watchOS 2 will allow users to interact with their device in a bevy of new ways. With WatchKit, wearers can now control HomeKit devices via Siri while the Digital Crown can be used intuitively in a number ways — like easily changing the temperature on your thermostat. watchOS 2 will now also allow users to create a Photo Face by simply accessing the Photos app, picking a photo, zooming and cropping, using Force Touch and saying “Create Watch Face.” Apps can also now use the Watch’s mic so, for example, messages can be dictated via speech, allowing your iPhone itself to stay stowed away in your pocket. Finally, rotations of the crown can be used in apps to go forward and backward in time to, say, display a flight departure time and how much battery life the device will have until takeoff.

watchOS 2 is available to developers now and is due out this fall as a free update.
