The Apple Watch you don't own already has an app on your iPhone

New, 53 comments

The Apple Watch will hit stores next month, but Apple is wasting no time in getting you hyped about one day owning one. As part of the iOS 8.2 update, a new app finds its way onto your homescreen, dedicated specifically to the Watch you don't yet (or may never) have.

We're not sure if they snuck U2 into the app, though.

It's worth noting that this isn't the first app users can't delete (like Stocks or Tips), but it is the first that demands you spend between $349 and $17,000 to actually start using. Meanwhile, while you'll almost certainly jettison this app to a folder labeled ¯\_(ツ)_/¯, we can't help but think functionality like this could have lived comfortably in Settings.
