In September 2014, Apple announced the Apple Watch, which it considers to be the next chapter in Apple’s history. This watch not only handles phone calls and text messages, but it also assesses the wearer’s health by tracking heart rate and exercise. At the same time, Apple announced WatchKit, a framework designed for developing apps for the Apple Watch. WatchKit will be very familiar to developers already familiar with UIKit.
