Some Ending Note

If you’re navigating a city using Apple Watch turn-by-turn walking directions, you do not even check out your smartwatch.

The Taptic Engine will direct you, albeit during a slightly bonkers way.

A left turn is going to be indicated by three sets of double ‘taps.’

    And the right one is going to be indicated by 12 taps. Yes, 12.

The first time we used the turn-by-turn, we were confused by the sheer amount of tapping, hopefully adding some clarity.


  • Update your iPhone to the newest version of iOS.
  • Make sure that your Apple Watch is a minimum of 50 percent charged.
  • Connect your iPhone to Wi-Fi.
  • Keep your iPhone next to your Apple Watch, so that they’re in range.
  • It could take from several minutes to an hour for the update to finish. You would possibly want to update overnight or wait until you’ve got time.
