WatchOS 2 Tutorial Part 1: Getting Started


watchOS 2 Tutorial Part 1: Getting Started
// Ray Wenderlich

Note: This is a brand new tutorial released as part of the iOS 9 Feast. Enjoy!

This year at WWDC, Apple introduced watchOS 2, which signifies a huge change for Apple Watch developers. Now, you can make native apps that run directly on your watch.

In this watchOS 2 Tutorial, you’ll build a simple but fully functional watchOS 2 app. Specifically, you will work on a watchOS app for a fictional airline called Air Aber.

In the process, you’ll learn:

  • How to add a watchOS 2 target to an iOS app;
  • How to share data across the two targets;
  • How to add a watchOS 2 interface controller to the Storyboard, and lay out the interface objects; and
  • How to create the WKInterfaceController subclass and wire everything up.

Let’s get started!

Note from Ray: Happy Wednesday – it’s book release day during the iOS 9 Feast!

This year at WWDC, Apple introduced watchOS 2, which signifies a huge change for Apple Watch developers. Now, you can make native apps that run directly on your watch.

  • Out is the hybrid architecture where the interface resided on the Watch, but the code executed as an extension on the paired iPhone.
  • In is a much more familiar, although still quite unique, flavor of architecture where the code is still executed as an extension, but within the Watch app running on the device itself.

With this shift, you can now access some of the more popular iOS frameworks from the watch, including Core Data, Core Location, Core Motion, and many, many others. There’s also many brand new features like Complications, Watch Connectivity, and more.

Given the major shift with watchOS 2 development, rather than doing a weak-sauce update of our previous book (WatchKit by Tutorials) we decided to rethink the book from the ground up.

The result is a brand new book, that is available today – watchOS 2 by Tutorials!

WatchOS 2: Background Transfers and Queues

Introduction

Watch Connectivity is a new communication framework released alongside iOS 9 and watchOS 2. It’s main purpose is to easily and seamlessly transfer information between an Apple Watch application and its parent iOS application.

The framework provides many different functionalities. A few weeks ago, Jorge Costa wrote about the ability to send messages between an iOS and an Apple Watch application. In this tutorial, we will zoom in on transferring data in the background.

The ability to send messages is designed for data that is needed immediately by the other device. In contrast, background transfers are best suited for larger chunks of data that are not needed immediately by the counterpart. An exception to this is with complication information, which we’ll discuss later in this tutorial.

Introduction

Alongside iOS 9 and watchOS 2, Apple introduced on-demand resources, a new API for delivering content to your applications while also reducing the amount of space the application takes up on the user’s device. With on-demand resources, you can tag specific assets of your application, have them hosted on Apple’s servers, allowing your users to download them when needed. In this tutorial, I am going show you the basics of on-demand resources by creating a basic image viewer application.
