Notifications feature is certainly one of them

As the news of the Apple Watch coming on to the consumer market as early as March of this year, people are getting more and more anxious as to exactly how the Apple Watch will work. Appleā€™s first venture into the digital wearables market will certainly be a big one but folks still would like to know just how this new smartwatch will operate. Will the Apple Watch be able to dominate and take over for the iPhone? We are not sure of that but some analysts are saying that the Apple Watch could certainly be tops in the smartwatch market. One thing for certain that the iPhone could learn from the Apple Watch is how it handles notifications.

As everyone knows, when someone gets a notification on an iPhone you either get a noise or a buzz. The buzz is very low in noise but if the sound is on your iPhone to take notifications it can be loud and disturbing. This is where the iPhone can learn from the Apple Watch.

With the Apple Watch, when a person gets a notification they will receive a slight tap on their wrist from a built in taptic engine or linear actuator built into the watch. All a person has to do then is look at their watch and get a short synopsis of the notification. When the person puts their wrist down, the notification will go away. This is unlike an iPhone where people around you can hear it and if they are behind you they can see exactly what the notification is.

Rene Ritchie of the website iMore wrote a blog talking about this very thing. Ritchie went on to say that the iPhone should start to look into this type of technology with notifications because it will help in protecting the privacy and information of the consumer. He also said that the iPhone should work on limiting info on their lock screens as well. The size of the Apple Watch prevents from too much info being shown on their lock feature.
