Hi all - sorry to report that the Apple Watch app has indeed gone. From a broad overview of our client base there seemed like there was insufficient use to justify the cost to develop and maintain the offering. 


I periodically collate all feedback submitted on IG Community, so if any other clients would like to feedback to us, please let me know.

Yeah really disappointed. In fact given I now have the Apple Watch 3 cellular and I was indeed going to ask if IG could develop the app so it could use cellular as stand alone from the phone. Now that would be fantastic as often I’m out on sporting activities without the phone. It’s the future. Cmonnnnnn.

Just bought an Apple Watch primarily to use IG. Very disappointed with this decision. Perhaps usage figures are tied to the number of Apple Watch users which are very much on the increase.

Please reinstate - surely IG can afford this and the number of people using (and understanding!) how to use their smartwatch is increasing exponentially. This has to be part of the future!

Considering how much faster and more responsive the apple watch series 3 is vs previous generations, I would be much more likely to use the IG watch app now than I would have been when I had the original apple watch, so it's disappointing to see that this has been removed.

Absolutely agree! With the iOS environment being so diverse, ever evolving and so streamline with it’s devices, the IG app really should have kept with the times of Apple’s and even Samsung’s evolution. 

Yes it would need resources to back it, but if so many smaller companies can accommodate for the cross over of platforms, IG really should too. Especially when you look into their financials. 

I have given feedback on this, and really insist a survey is done to see the demand of a great iOS IG watch app.

End of the day it’s all about the Client’s experience!

have a great day all!

Yeh could do with better stability, same as the app itself. Has been crashing a lot. I’m going to make a post on this but on the iphone app on a chart before you could double tap the screen and swipe up simultaneously, and it would zoom in like a lil magnifying glass. Was very helpful with fib extensions retracements and general accuracy of all drawings. Why has this function stopped working?

Hey, I've spoken to our developers and they said due to low demand there's no project ongoing for the Apple Watch app return.

I will however bring this up in a meeting with your comment to show there is demand for the app. Hopefully it's something that can be changed for the future. 

I also think we really need IG on iwatch as well!

    • Artificial intelligence (AI) is the new big hot topic.  Jeremy Naylor | Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 30 May 2023  After NVIDIA last week reported a massive earnings and revenue beat, the company is now building Israel's most powerful AI supercomputer. It will cost hundreds of millions of dollars, but the computational power proposal is astonishing. The system, called Israel-1, is expected to deliver the performance of up to eight exaflops of AI computing. One exaflop is a standard measure of performance for a supercomputer. Exa is short for quintillion, a 1 followed by 18 zeros, which means one exaflop has the ability to perform one billion-billion calculations per second. This proposal from NVIDIA is to build a computer which can perform eight times that amount of calculations per second. The report suggests that the system will be partly operational by the end of 2023. (Video Transcript) More good news for NVIDIA NVIDIA, the artificial intelligence (AI) specialist which makes semiconductors for computers, reported some stellar earnings last week, both earnings and revenues up, and the outlook extremely robust as a result of its association with artificial intelligence or AI chips. Yesterday, NVIDIA came out with some more news. It's announced it is building Israel's most powerful AI semi-computer and the numbers are astonishing. The system is called Israel-1. It's expected to deliver the performance of up to eight exaflops of AI computing. Now, what is an exaflop? Well, that's a good question. One exaflop has the ability to perform one billion-billion calculations per second. Now, the system will cost hundreds of millions of dollars and will be partly operational by the end of 2023. This will mean that Israel through this computer will be able to engage far quicker with AI computing and it will help extra elements. Share price chart Let's take a look at what's happening in NVIDIA stock as we speak all-sessions on the IG platform. This is early trade. We are very, very close to going to a new all-time high and I suspect we could well end up seeing this creep up, even as we speak. It is currently trading at $398.74. This is a candle here where you can see we've gone at the bottom and we're currently at the top. There are no sellers in this stock. And I predict that sometime today, we will see a new all-time record high. Last week, NVIDIA stock jumped more than 25%, or around about a quarter of its total value, on the back of its quarterly earnings. And you can see at the moment we are punching higher as we speak. So, NVIDIA very much the front and center of AI computing and it's benefiting this morning from that news in Israel.
    • HP, all-sessions on the IG platform, is reporting its fiscal second quarter (Q2) earnings and revenue after tonight's US closing bell.    Jeremy Naylor | Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 30 May 2023  The Street forecasts earnings of 76 cents per share, which would be a drop of about 29% from the same quarter a year ago. Revenue is expected to decline by 21% year-on-year to just over $13 billion, a performance that reflects the continuing fall in demand for PCs. Shares of the personal computer and printer maker have lost about 13% of their value over the past 12 months. But so far this year the stock has gained about 15% thanks to two consecutive better-than-expected quarterly reports. (Video Transcript) HP earnings HP is expected to report after the closing bell tonight. The Street forecasts earnings of $0.76 per share, which will be a drop of around 29% from the same quarter this time last year. Revenue is expected to drop by 21% year-on-year to just over $13 billion, a performance that reflects a continuing fall in PC demand. Now Hewlett Packard is all-sessions on the IG platform. The personal computer and printer maker's shares have lost about 13% of their value of the last 12 months so far this year. Share price chart If we have a look at the chart here for Hewlett Packard, you can see as of Friday's all-sessions close it beat the previous high, 3116 closing at 3136, the highest close that we've seen there in this market since the 29th of August last year. It's 15% up so far this year, thanks to two consecutive better than expected quarterly reports. Now, its spinoff company, HPE, which is Hewlett Packard Enterprise. It's not all-sessions on the platform, and a very different fate over the past 12 months, broadly unchanged over the period. The stock has lost around 7% in the last five months, despite beating estimates and raising forecasts three months ago. HPE also releasing its quarterly earnings tonight after the bell. Analysts anticipate a 9% rise in its earnings per share, $0.49. We've got a chart showing you what's expected. Revenue is also expected to rise by 7% to $7.31 billion. That stock is not all-sessions on the platform. You can trade all-sessions on Hewlett Packard after the bell on its figures.
