After the official version of watchOS 7 is released this fall. Apple Watch users will be able to run commands on the Apple Watch without connecting to the iPhone, thereby greatly expanding the watch’s functions.
Apple Watch shortcuts are expected to provide powerful one-click triggers for complex operations. Such as launching Apple Music playlists, managing HomeKit devices, querying Siri processes, and more. Many of these features will be first used on Apple wearable devices through watchOS 7.
On Monday, Apple announced support for watchOS Siri keyboard shortcuts, although Apple did not specify how this feature works. In particular, it is unclear whether the shortcut command will be provided as an independent local operation on the Apple Watch or as a remote trigger when it is connected to the iPhone.
Apple answered this question at a developer conference on Friday and noted that the watch can run shortcuts locally without connecting an iPhone.
There are several factors when processing shortcut commands. First, consider the type of shortcut command. If the operation is NSUserActivity, watchOS 7 will find a working host application. Missing an application will result in an error message. Likewise, shortcuts are designed to be processed locally in Watch using app extensions or remotely on the iPhone as a backup.
The new command-line application provides users with the synchronization function between iOS, iPadOS, and watchOS via iCloud. In watchOS 7, shortcuts can also be used as complex functions for dials.
