Apple’s WWDC 2019 is closing on next month and claims already made about Apple Watch’s next-generation OS dubbed “watchOS 6”. and this time App Store on Apple Watch is coming in the new update.

App Store on Apple Watch
The App Store itself will be working independently from your iPhone, so no more app installing on your iPhone before you can use them on your Apple Watch.
If true, this feature will be especially useful for Apple Watch LTE version, as they will be able to download apps via mobile data connection directly.
wearOS 6 will also bring some new health features, like tracking menstrual cycles and giving bill reminders. But some of these features are not new, as Fitbit had menstrual trackers for a while now.
Some iPhone apps will come Apple Watch as well, including Voice Memos, Apple Books (listen to audiobooks anytime) and Calculator.
And of course it won’t be a new update without new watch faces.
