This week is CES 2018 and we can expect to see some great products announced, Whirlpool has already announced that it’s working on an Apple Watch app that will allow you to control more than 20 of its connected appliances, including ovens, washing machines and dryers.

Whirlpool says that as well as using the app to carry out simple tasks, it will also prove useful for checking on the status of appliances such as:

  • Ovens — Check temperature, change oven settings during a cook cycle
  • Washing machines — Change the type of wash cycle when the washer’s in use
  • Dryers — Check if a cycle has started, see how much time is remaining on a cycle

The app is being shown off at CES, and will be available for download later in the year.
