watchOS 11

At WWDC 2024, they unveiled an operating system update for smartwatches. One of the new features aimed at athletes is called "Training Load" This feature uses artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze your workouts and make recommendations. A special algorithm rates your effort on a scale of 1 to 10 to determine how intensely you've been training. The system then tells you whether you need to work harder or reduce your workload to avoid injury.

watchOS 11

There is a new app called Vitals. It collects and displays all your body data like heart rate, temperature, and sleep quality in one place. But the most exciting thing is a new real-time translation app. It will likely utilize the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to translate conversations on the go.

The rings will allow for customization. In addition, will allow us to "pause" the activity period and customize it more precisely: for example, on Friday 700 kcal and 12 hours, and lazy Saturday 300 kcal and 6 hours. The Cycles app for women will be able to competently analyze health during pregnancy and provide valuable recommendations.

Game developers will have an easier time porting their projects to macs with Game Porting Toolkit 2.  Assassin's Creed Shadows is coming in November, followed later by Resident Evil 2 Remake and other major and minor projects.

VisionOS

Virtual Monitor and Enhanced Vision Pro Control

This year, the virtual monitor for Mac is getting even better! It will support higher resolution and an ultra-wide aspect ratio. This means the image will be sharper and the screen wider, which is especially useful for working with multiple windows.

For the Vision Pro system, mouse control will be added, making the work more familiar and convenient. New gestures will also appear, allowing for quick access to the home screen and Control Center, speeding up access to essential functions.

Spatial Videos and Developer Support

Apple continues to advance its spatial video technologies with the Apple Immersive Video format. Viewing documentaries in the headset will become even more vivid and captivating.

App Support and Expansion into New Markets

Apple is proud that over 2,000 applications have already been written for the Vision Pro headset. Additionally, about 1.5 million applications initially created for iPhone and iPad have been adapted for the headset.

How does this affect other companies?

Grammarly

Apple Intelligence Features: Apple’s new intelligence features partially cover the use cases of Grammarly. This could lead to users relying more on built-in features rather than third-party apps like Grammarly for writing and grammar checks.

Calculator

Enhanced iPad Calculator: The new, advanced calculator app for iPad, described as "on steroids," might render many third-party calculator apps in the store obsolete. With enhanced functionality and integration, users might prefer the native Apple app.

1Password and Similar Apps

Apple’s Competing Applications: Apple is developing competing applications that challenge popular apps like 1Password. With built-in password management and enhanced security features, users might shift towards Apple’s integrated solutions, reducing the demand for third-party password managers.

AllTrails

Integration with Apple Maps: Features similar to those offered by AllTrails will now be available on Apple Maps. This integration could attract users who prefer a single, cohesive ecosystem, potentially impacting the user base of specialized trail and outdoor activity apps.

Bezel and Similar Apps

Native Mac Functionality: Features provided by apps like Bezel will now be natively available on Mac. This could reduce the need for third-party solutions, as users might prefer the seamless integration and optimized performance of native applications.

Summary: Apple’s latest updates and features are integrating functionalities that third-party apps have traditionally offered. This integration into the Apple ecosystem could significantly impact the user base and market demand for these third-party solutions, as users might prefer the convenience and reliability of native Apple apps.
