  • Patent number: 10209810
    Abstract: A device with a touch-sensitive display, a rotatable input mechanism, processors, and memory storing programs for displaying, on the touch-sensitive display, a user interface comprising a plurality of objects each associated with a contact and an affordance representing a first contact is disclosed. The memory may include programs for, in response to receiving the first input, updating the visual appearance of the affordance to represent the second contact among the plurality of contacts, and the memory also may include programs for, after updating the visual appearance of the affordance, updating display of the affordance to an add contact affordance, where the add contact affordance was not displayed prior to detecting the second input corresponding to the selection of the object that is not associated with any contact. Further, the memory may include programs for displaying a user interface for adding a contact upon selection of the add contact affordance.

  • Patent number: 10209866
    Abstract: In some embodiments, an electronic device presents media items from different media applications in a unified media browsing application. In some embodiments, an electronic device facilitates browsing of media from different media applications based on category of media (e.g., movies, television shows, etc.). In some embodiments, an electronic device facilitates setup of a unified media browsing application that presents media items from different media applications in a unified media browsing user interface. In some embodiments, an electronic device displays multiple episodes of a collection of episodic content (e.g., a television series) in a user interface for the collection of episodic content. In some embodiments, an electronic device displays representations of, and provides access to, live-event media items accessible on the electronic device.

  • Patent number: 10200587
    Abstract: At an electronic device with a touch-sensitive display, a remote camera control user interface may be displayed. In some examples, a user may provide input through a gesture at a location corresponding to the touch-sensitive display and/or through a rotation of a rotatable input mechanism to control a camera of an external device. Camera control may include control of the external device's camera features, including image capture, zoom settings, focus settings, flash settings, and timer settings, for example, and may also include access to the external device's library of previously captured images.
