Apple Watch Series 6 rumors and features
9to5Mac obtained code that gives us clues to a number of new features coming with Series 6 and watchOS 7.
Based on leaked iOS 14 code obtained by 9to5Mac, we can share many more details including new watch faces, sleep tracking, and parental control features in development for later this fall.
The parental control features will allow parents to pair a second Apple Watch with their iPhone and be able to hand it off to a child to use. Doing this would allow them to track a child’s location with GPS (if it has LTE activated), send messages, and more. Read the entire report for all of the rumors.
We can also report that a new blood oxygen detection feature is in development.
Blood oxygen levels between 95% and 100% are considered healthy; blood oxygen levels below 80% may lead to compromised heart and brain functionality. Risk of respiratory or cardiac arrest is common after continued low blood oxygen saturation.
To that end, Apple is developing a new health notification based on the vital measurement. When Apple Watch detects low blood oxygen saturation below a certain threshold, a notification will trigger, alerting the user similar to current heart rate notifications.
Apple is also working on improving the ECG feature of Apple Watch to make it even more reliable. Apple’s health initiatives have continually been proven to save lives, so this is great news. Read the entire report for the latest rumors.
