Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2

Cupertino, CA Apple Inc. is thrilled to unveil a groundbreaking addition to its already impressive line of smartwatches: the Dual-Tap Gesture. Available today with watchOS 10.1, this innovative feature revolutionizes how users interact with the Apple Watch, offering a swift and convenient method of control that can be operated with a single hand, without the need to touch the display.

The Dual-Tap Gesture enables users to navigate their Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 effortlessly by simply tapping their index finger and thumb together twice, performing a range of everyday actions with unprecedented ease. This feature seamlessly complements our existing suite of gestures, ensuring that the Apple Watch remains as intuitive as ever, enhancing the user experience.

Apple understands the diverse range of scenarios that our users find themselves in daily, from walking the dog to cooking, or even holding a cup of coffee. The Dual-Tap Gesture empowers users to perform a wide array of actions across various watchOS applications and notifications, all with one hand, including:

The Dual-Tap Gesture elevates the user experience, simplifying interactions across a diverse array of watchOS apps and notifications.

At the heart of this remarkable innovation is the S9 SiP (System in Package), which powers the Dual-Tap Gesture on the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2. The S9 SiP is 25% more power efficient than its predecessor, paired with a brand-new 4-core Neural Engine that accelerates machine learning tasks twofold.

This Neural Engine efficiently processes data from the accelerometer, gyroscope, and optical heart sensor, all thanks to a cutting-edge machine learning algorithm. This algorithm is designed to detect the unique signature of subtle wrist movements and changes in blood flow, specifically when the index finger and thumb execute a double-tap.

The Dual-Tap Gesture is available whenever the Apple Watch display is active, ensuring minimal impact on the remarkable 18-hour battery life of the Apple Watch Series 9 and the exceptional 36-hour battery life of the Apple Watch Ultra 2.

In addition, the Dual-Tap Gesture can be customized to suit individual preferences. While the feature is intelligently designed to automatically select the primary action for most apps and notifications, there are two specific instances where users can opt for an alternative function.

These include navigating through widgets within the Smart Stack or selecting the initial available widget and managing media playback during an active session, allowing for pausing media or advancing to the next track with ease.

Apple is dedicated to enhancing the user experience and making technology more accessible, and the Dual-Tap Gesture is a testament to our commitment to innovation and simplicity.
