Apple is reportedly looking to make its own video apps for the Apple Watch, but it’s not clear if this will be a fully fledged product.
In an interview with VentureBeat, Apple’s VP of software engineering Scott Forstall confirmed that the company has plans to make a video app for the wearable.
“We’ve talked about doing something, we’ve been talking about it,” he said.
“If we could get the team together and have that kind of collaboration, it would be awesome.”
It would be really cool if we could do something for the Watch.””
So we want to be in that mix and have this seamless interaction.
It would be really cool if we could do something for the Watch.”
Forstall also said that Apple Watch users will be able to share video clips from their Apple Watch on social media, and that Apple is “looking at that”.
“We’re thinking about that,” he explained.
“I think it’s something that would be cool.
It’s something we’re exploring, but we’re not going to announce it right now.”
We asked Forstall if Apple is actively looking to create a video for the watch, but he declined to give us any details.
Forstall did, however, say that Apple was planning to add an in-app payment feature to its Watch app that would allow users to purchase items like music and movies from iTunes.
“The app is about more than just purchasing,” he continued.
“It’s about how you can interact with the app.”
This is all part of Apple’s strategy to make Apple Watch apps for other platforms.
Earlier this month, Apple announced that it had sold over 3.4 million Apple Watches to developers in the last three months of 2016, with an average purchase price of $499.
That makes Apple Watch one of the most popular wearable products for developers.
For the time being, however: The Watch is the most dominant device for developers, and there is no clear competitor for the device.
