The Uber app has stopped on the Apple Watch
The famous Uber company has announced the taxi request service to support its application on the Apple Watch, and this decision comes after a number of other major companies that made a similar move. It seems that these companies are starting to understand something important, which is that the user of the watch wants to do quick things on it or see information, not to use a program that has a lot of pressure and reading.

Find My service starts showing up in bags
Apple launched Find My and announced that accessory makers will support it in their products, and this week we saw several new products that support Find My stuff like a wallet card and a backpack from a manufacturer called Targus.

Apple audiobook service?
A new report published by The Economist indicated a leak in one of the Apple documents indicating that the company could enter the field of selling audio books through a monthly subscription, in a service such as Audible from Amazon or the famous Storytel in the Arab world.
iMessage support on Windows?
Intel announced at its latest conference that it wants to work on features to support i-Message and the iOS Health app in Windows on devices that have an Evo license, which the company gives to computer manufacturers based on certain conditions, and Intel said it wants to work "with partners" to ensure this works. The features are smooth, but is Apple satisfied with this collaboration? It seems unlikely. If Apple wanted to support i-Message on Windows, it would have launched its own application without the need for Intel.
So Intel might try to support the feature unofficially by cheating with technology from a company that was making a sync app that Intel acquired some time ago. I smell issues from my place here.
The first iOS app programmed on the iPad
Apple launched a long-awaited possibility, which is programming on the iPad, and although it did not launch the Xcode application for making applications with all its great advantages, it did allow the playgrounds application, which is dedicated to teaching beginners programming to make complete programs and publish them on the App Store from the iPad. Already published the first app using Playgrounds, a personal memo app (sort of a comic) called ToDon't, and the app developer praises the ease of using the iPad for programming the application highly, maybe it's your chance to enter the world of programming with your iPad?
