Apple Watch with WatchOS 10 cannot play music on iPhone

The world of wearable technology just witnessed the release of watchOS 10, Apple’s highly anticipated tenth iteration of its smartwatch operating system. Packed with exciting new features like Fast Charging, precise iPhone tracking, crash detection, enhanced cycling capabilities, Double Tap functionality, and on-device Siri, it promised to elevate the Apple Watch experience to new heights.

However, as is often the case with software updates, a few pesky bugs decided to join the party. These include issues like Weather Complication glitches, screen flickering quirks, low brightness woes for the Always-On Display, and an unconventional method for changing watch faces.

But perhaps one of the most frustrating concerns reported by users is the inability to play music from their iPhones using their Apple Watches. Even more perplexing, the ‘On iPhone’ option seems to have mysteriously vanished in the latest watchOS 10 update.
