watchOS 8.3 adds Assistive Ouch to older Apple Watch models

Apple recently released watchOS 8.3 Developer Release Candidate, assuming there’s no problem, this should be the version everyone might get next week.

It has now been announced that the watchOS 8.3 software update will bring the AssistiveTouch function to older Apple Watch models. For more information on how the feature works, see below.

AssistiveTouch for watchOS enables people with upper body differences to use Apple Watch without ever touching the display or controls. With the help of built-in motion sensors and in-device learning, the Apple Watch detects subtle differences in muscle movements and tendon activity, so that you can control the display with hand gestures such as pinching or squeezing. This feature also works with VoiceOver, so you can navigate your Apple Watch with one hand while using a walking stick or leading a service animal. Answer incoming calls, control an on-screen motion pointer, and access the Notification Center, Control Center and more.

The AssistiveTouch feature has now been expanded to include models such as the Apple Watch Series 4 and Apple Watch Series 5.

We expect Apple to release its watchOS 8.3 software update sometime next week, along with the new iOS 15.2 and iPadOS 15.2 software updates. As soon as we receive confirmation of the release date, we will let you know.
