Explore how the iPhone and the Apple Watch interact for notifications, and learn how to make eye-catching notifications for the Apple Watch and create actions for those notifications.
- [Steven] An Apple Watch's purpose is to interact with the user in a few seconds. Notifications that appear on the watch save the user the time to find, pick up, and look at their phone. On the watch, you just raise your wrist. Core to the Apple Watch is replacing your iPhone for notifications. If your phone is locked or asleep, your watch shows the notification first. It's therefore critical for any app using notifications on a phone to have a watch notification ready. In this course, we'll look at how the phone and the watch interact for notifications, how to make good looking notifications, how to make notifications exclusively for the watch, and how to create actions for your notifications.
