Just in case you weren't already spending enough time with your iPhone, Apple is giving us a few more reasons to stay connected.

In the first major software update for the newly-released Apple Watch, watchOS, developers will be able to build dedicated apps for the device. You'll even be able to download these apps directly to your watch, without even needing to have your iPhone turned on.

Finally, Siri Is Getting Smarter

If having a personal assistant isn't a reality, this will get you pretty close. A major upgrade to Siri means that the mobile assistant will be able to put your needs in context by pulling data from your apps and identifying unknown callers by searching your data services for the number. The best part? None of the information Siri pulls will be uploaded to the cloud, so your information never leaves your device.
