NEW FOR iOS 10
Tired of those drab, text-only satellite notifications? We’ve launched our notifications into orbit with an animated Earth view showing the satellite’s path.
Filters now have a whole new feeling. Take an X-ray Peek at the sky or Pop a filter for full screen exploration. You can also use 3D Touch on your Sky Guide app icon for Quick Actions and a compact version of the Sky Guide widget.
New for watchOS 3
Sky Guide for Apple Watch has been streamlined into three categories: Sun activity, Moon, and the International Space Station. Swipe to switch pages or use the Digital Crown to view more detailed information. Your last viewed page will be saved for viewing in the Dock. Keep Sky Guide in your Dock for instantaneous launches.
Pull down your satellite notifications to see an animated Earth view detailing the satellite’s path.
NEW BY POPULAR DEMAND
You can now select a custom latitude and longitude or use the map to find what the sky will look like in very remote locations. It's great for planning what you'll see on those camping trips.
No, I meant to tap THAT
Selecting stars and deep sky objects is now more intelligent and intuitive
We've added a new Meteor Showers category plus you can now search for stars by HR, HD and HIP catalog numbers. Galaxy icons now align and scale as do open cluster icons. Satellite passes are now more accurate than ever.
iPad Pro keyboard shortcuts: cmd+F = Find an object, cmd+, = Preferences, cmd+M = Main Menu, cmd+T = Time Controls
A brilliant twist? If we wanted to get technical we'd call this our new high-dynamic-range point-spread-function stellar rendering engine with diffraction spikes. Translation? They’re the most beautiful and realistic stars you've ever experienced.
