There’s a new charging animation, Music app control of iPhone music, and more. It was detailed at the time of the first beta of watchOS 4.3 that with the coming update users will be able to control the music playing on their iPhone using the Music app installed on the Apple Watch. And as mentioned, this new feature is now active.
The first developer beta of the watchOS 4.3 brought a new animation to play when the watch is charging. Also, Siri watch face was added with Activity information.
The registered developers with their proper configuration profile can install the update over-the-air y navigating to the Software Update tab in the Apple Watch iPhone app.
