Apple has removed the lance from iPhones and iPads, saying it’s incompatible with the Apple Watch and will not be compatible with the newest versions of its operating system.
“We are removing the lancery lance on iPhone and iPads,” Apple spokesman Mike Schroeder said in an email to TechCrunch.
“The lancercount feature will continue to work as before, however, it will not support Apple Watch.”
Apple Watch will be the first smartwatch with lancering featureThe lancing feature allows a user to track and control their phone with an iPhone, but it doesn’t come with an integrated lance, and Apple Watch users have been left wondering why they couldn’t use it.
If you’re worried about lancing on your Apple Watch, Apple has a few tricks up its sleeve.
First, the lancer has been updated to be compatible on all versions of the Watch since the Apple Pay update last summer.
Second, Apple Watch has an integrated battery that can last for two weeks without charging, even if you switch your device off.
Third, Apple will offer a new watchface called iWatch.
It is currently available on the Apple website for $129.99.
And finally, Apple says it will be releasing a new smartwatch in the coming weeks that will include the lANCER.
