Second watchOS 10.1 developer beta now available with support for Double Tap
Apple has pushed its second developer beta of watchOS 10.1 enabling Double Tap, allowing users to interact with their wearable without touching the screen.
Apple’s previous watchOS 10.1 developer beta introduced the iPhone maker’s new NameDrop feature, which, like AirDrop, allows Apple Watch users to share contact information with other users by bringing their Apple Watches together.
Double Tap is a new feature coming to the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra. The feature is enabled by the new S9 chip on the wearables, which allows users to interact with the device by pinching their index finger and thumb twice in compatible apps.
