WatchOS 9 introduces Typing Prediction to Apple Watch Series 7

A splendid feature that was missed by the users of Apple Watch Series 6 or older ones is finally here in the WatchOS 9. In the recently updated operating system, Apple Watch Series 7 users are going to gain access to QuickType that is a famous iOS 8 feature. 

Predictive typing will be available for Apple Watch Series 7 users that are using the WatchOS 9. If you don’t know much about this feature, here’s a look at how it works. 

QuickType is basically a predictive text engine, that allows you to get words and phrases according to your language and sentence structure. In simple words, it will save you a lot of time when you are writing a long message on your Apple Watch running WatchOS 9.

In fact, Apple is also thinking about expanding the QWERTY keyboard on Apple Watch Series 7 to add a few more languages courtesy WatchOS 9. It means that the QuickType is also going to be available for German, French, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish (Mexico, Spain, Latin America).

“Since the first Apple Watch, text input has been critical and a huge challenge. We always wanted a QWERTY keyboard and this new display enabled that and enabled it in a way that we think we could deliver the feature in incredibly usable and powerful way. Designing the new keyboard was really quite a challenge. So, we made some important decisions. One thing we did was we removed the bezels from the keys, those little outlines to help make it feel a little less cramped. And to imply that precision isn’t critical with your taps because of the intelligence behind the keyboard,” said Alan Dye – Apple. 

For those looking to type easy answers on the Apple Watch, this iOS 8 feature will surely make things easier for the watch OS 9 users.
