A Boolean value that determines whether the app extends its time as the frontmost app.
- watchOS 4.0+
This value defaults to
false. An app remains the frontmost app for two minutes after the user drops their wrist. Setting this property to
true extends the app's time as the frontmost app to eight minutes.
Don't just extend the app's frontmost time globally. Instead, enable it only when the user is performing an activity that they are likely to continue. Otherwise, disable it. Users can also change the default length of time that apps spend as the frontmost app (Settings > General > Wake Screen). If they select a time that is eight minutes or longer, then this property has no effect. In other words, when
is is set to
true, the app remains the frontmost app for eight minutes, or for the amount of time selected by the user, whichever is longer.
