When certain apps are active, a small version of the app icon appears at the top of the watch's display. I saw this status icon when using the music app along with Maps and walkie-talkie. If the icon does not disappear, as in the walkie-talkie, you can tap to open the app.

Apple has added the watchOS 5 app for podcasts. You can manage which podcasts are synced to your Apple Watch using the Watch app on your iPhone ($ 999 by Apple) . Simply select podcasts from the list and then adjust what is synchronized with your watch and when not, when connected to a charger overnight.

Starting with watchOS 5, you can now view links sent directly to your watch in messages or emails. So next time someone writes you a link or you want to see an e-mail newsletter, click on the link.

Forget about saying "Hey Siri" when you lift your wrist to interact with Apple's digital assistant. There's a new Raise to Speak feature that detects when you lift your wrist to the mouth and wait for a command.

The trick to getting it to work is to speak after lifting your wrist. If you do not speak, the Siri interface will not be displayed. It took a few tries to get the hang of it, but now it feels natural.

Under General > Siri in the Apple, you can turn off the "Raise to Speak" setting Watch settings app.

The Siri watch on watchOS is not new, but starting with watchOS 5, the Siri digit starts with the suggested Siri shortcut, which includes third-party apps. Do not be surprised if you happen to see a map suggesting a way home, or calling somebody on your way home after installing watchOS 5.

To customize what's on the Siri watch, open the watch app on your iPhone and select your Siri watch face. Scroll down and find the sections Data Sources Sports and 3rd Party Apps .
