Apple Shares New Apple Watch Series 4 Tutorial Videos on YouTube

Apple this evening shared several new Apple Watch Series 4 tutorial videos on its YouTube channel, walking Apple Watch owners through features that include watch face customization, Walkie-Talkie, Activity rings, customizing workout metrics, locating an iPhone from Apple Watch, and streaming Apple Music.

All of the videos are about 30 to 40 seconds in length and are designed for those who are new to the Apple Watch, though the content may also be useful for those who have forgotten about the existence of some Apple Watch features. A full list of the new tutorial videos is below:







Each video includes a simple set of step-by-step instructions for completing a given task on the Apple Watch, making the content easy to follow for Apple Watch owners.

Apple regularly does tutorial videos for various features on Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and Mac, but most of these videos are released on its Apple Support YouTube channel. Apple does, however, occasionally share tutorial videos for new products on its main YouTube channel.

These quick Apple Watch Series 4 tutorial videos may be shown in ad spots on TV or shared on social networks like Instagram and Twitter in the near future.

Apple released the Apple Watch Series 4 in September. The new device features a larger display, a slimmed down body, a more powerful processor, an ECG feature in the U.S. that works through a new sensor in the Digital Crown, a louder speaker, and more.

Who still remembers when Apple used to stand for ergonomics, simplicity and user friendliness? A series of no less than SIX tutorials. For a.... Watch? I think they've lost their way a wee bit over the years, don't you, readers? (That was a rhetorical question BTW. The actual answer is Yes. Cheers!)

There was a time where Apple products where so intuitive , you almost never needed to consult a manual even for the Mac.
Now you need a full course and tutorials for a freaking watch.

I haven't needed to consult a manual for my Mac, iPhone, HomePod, and...my Watch. I suspect that's the same with many others.

No need to feel bad if you do. It's all good.

couldn't they release this on the day the watches shipped? Wow - timing for the win.

Yes, excellent timing as many people will be getting Apple Watch's for Christmas. You may be shocked learning that a lot of recipients are not technical or hang out on tech forums and live and breath tech. The videos are a good and very quick way to let people know about the features.

“It just works” died around 2013 thanks to the wrong Genius being allowed to influence software and the UIx.

I don't think this is targeted at you - more like new comers to smart watches in general, or people who aren't tech savvy. (Yes, people need help with new systems, just like in the old days)

I know so many people coming from PC who bitched about they didn't know how to use a mac, even in the "Apple products were intuitive" days.

Switching to OSX was never possible without at least google or some reference. iOS was very possible to just “do” without guidance till ios7.
