- [Steven] The Apple Watch is the breakout star of the wearables market. The market for apps is still rich with possibilities. Unlike phone apps, watch apps are not often standalone. They are most often accessories to an iPhone app, but how do you get your phone app onto your watch? Hi, I'm Steven Lipton. In this course, we'll take some basic skills of watchOS and expand them to their full power. You'll learn how to add a watch app to your existing phone app, how watches and phones communicate, what you can do with watch background modes, and some more advanced APIs such as SpriteKit, SceneKit, MapKit, and image animation.
I'll show you how to use complications so you can look at your watch and the app at the same time. You'll learn all this and more, so let's get started.
1. The Background
