We already got the big Apple Watch reveal last fall. But today, Tim Cook took the stage at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco to let us all know what wonders that very Apple smartwatch can perform, like make and receive calls! Oh yes, and there's also a host of apps to take advantage of Apple Watch, but to get them, first you'll need to download the new iOS 8.2 software update for your iPhone. Good thing it's available today.

iOS 8.2 adds the Apple Watch app to your iPhone, so you can pair it to your Watch. A crucial thing you'll need to unlock the pricey power of the multitasking watch on your wrist. It also adds a specific section to the App Store dedicated to the Apple Watch where users will find tailored versions of apps from the likes of Uber, Instagram, MLB and Shazam to name a few. You'll have to wait until Apple Watch goes on sale in April to see them action. So for now, content yourselves with the demo shots below.

WeChat

You can reply to WeChat messages using... stickers.

Uber

You can monitor your driver's ETA from the Uber app.

Instagram

You can look at your friends' brunch photos with Instagram on Apple Watch.

SPG/W Hotel

You can check your hotel reservation info and unlock your room door with Apple Watch.
