watchOS 4.3 Adds Vertical Nightstand Mode, New Music Features

watchOS 4.3 has been available as a developer beta for the past few days, but the wider masses will soon be able to access it; and the update brings some exciting features.

One of the most popular features of previous versions of the OS was the ability to control speakers and Music Saved on your iPhone. But last September, Apple decided to remove this functionality.

Many people loved the feature, and Apple didn’t really explain why it had a change of heart. Currently, you’re only able to control Music saved on the Watch.

However, with the latest version of Watchos, the feature makes a much anticipated return. Within the Watch Music app, there’s a new option called “On iPhone”.

By clicking on this, you can control music saved on your iPhone and use AirPlay. With this, you’re able to play music through supported speakers – which is pretty cool if you’re in another room or are planning a party.

Of course, there are some other nifty features, including an updated version of Nightstand Mode. Previously, you’ve only been able to use the functionality while the Watch is placed on its side.

But with 4.3, you’ll have the option to make use of the feature when you’re using the Watch in portrait orientation mode. Essentially, the updated functionality gives you a little more choice.

The update also brings new charging animation, and as always, there are some much needed bug fixes. Apple hasn’t announced an official release date for the update, but you shouldn’t have to wait too long.

Apple Watch owners will be able to download the official watchOS 4.3 update this spring.
