The Apple Watch can respond to the Vision Pro’s control gestures – Apple has already created a solution to the problem

New interesting settings have appeared in the beta versions of the watchOS 10.4 and iOS 17.4 operating systems. Apple has added a special switch that allows the Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2 smartwatches to ignore one of the gesture commands to avoid control conflicts with the Apple Vision Pro augmented reality headset.

The Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2 smartwatches feature a thumb-to-index finger gesture that allows you to select icons and open widgets without touching the device screen. The problem is that Apple’s Vision Pro AR headset supports the exact same gesture. It allows you to select the content you want in the visionOS operating system. This can lead to a control conflict if the user uses two of these gadgets at the same time.

A new feature in the upcoming watchOS 10.4 and iOS 17.4 operating systems will allow Apple smartwatches to temporarily ignore tap gestures when the owner is using the Vision Pro headset.

The official release of the iOS 17.4 and watchOS 10.4 operating systems will take place in March. Apple recently released the first public beta of iOS 17.4.
