    WatchOS 3.2 features

    Apple has released a beta version of Watch OS 3.2 to developers (only).
    MacRumors and others are reporting two new features in WatchOS 3.2
    Read the original article on MacRumors or search the Apple developer site.

    theater mode
    "Theater Mode can be accessed by swiping up on the watch face to bring
    up the Control Center. It's just below the option for silencing the Apple
    Watch and features an icon with two theater masks.

    When Theater Mode is turned on, it prevents the Apple Watch from making
    noise and it keeps the screen dark even when the wrist is raised. Notifications
    still come through, however, and are delivered via haptic feedback. The Apple
    Watch's screen can be activated with a tap or through a press on the Digital
    Crown."

    SiriKit
    SiriKit allows applications to interact with Siri.

    The rumor part is for a WatchOS 3.2 public release in March.

    Thanks for the heads up. I think voice commanding will be an increasing useful way to interact.

    You are a beta tester?

    Oh this is really interesting. I usually just turn the brightness down, but this is nice as well.

    I've been using a plain red Modular face for the movie theater, but this new mode helps even more.

    Yes. I didn't want to wait for watchOS 3 back in summer. So I got a developer account.

    By the way you can do the same thing as theater mode by going to settings and turning display activation off.

    Can you provide a link for watchOS developer account, by PM if necessary.

    Sign up as a developer at Apple.com -- I think it's apple.com/developer (or something like that).

    It's free to simply be a developer. I'm one (as far as I can tell). You would need to start paying a fee when you want to submit apps to the App Store and begin selling.

    I presume as a developer, you can create or modify IOS or WatchOS apps?
