A new leak related to the Apple Watch Series 6 points to the wearable offering sleep tracking, longer battery life, and coming with Apple’s newest S6 SoC. The leak comes from a relatively new source, though the leak was confirmed to be real by YouTuber Jon Prosser who has recently leaked plenty of information related to the iPhone 12 and the iPhone SE before its launch.
Apple Watch: Release Date, Features & News
It is not very unusual for Apple Watch to save lives and help users take better care of their health. Recent Apple Watch comes with features like ECG, Emergency Calling which help users when they are in trouble or are facing health issues. Apple Watch has once again swung into action and this time around saved life of an 80-year old patient from Germany.
The first Apple Watch was unveiled back in 2015, and we’ve seen the company’s smartwatch grow from being quite limited to being one of the most feature-packed devices in the segment. On the occasion of the smartwatch’s fifth anniversary, one of the Apple Watch’s designer shared some interesting tidbits from the development history.
If your Apple Watch is malfunctioning or if it is broken, and if you’re planning to send the smartwatch to Apple for repair, you should remove the wrist bands before shipping it. Otherwise, you won’t get those bands back from Apple.
The Apple Watch is already one of the best smartwatches out there, featuring all the health and safety-related features, including heart rate monitoring and irregular heart rate alerts, fall detection, and more. But Apple wants to do more, and one of its patents reveals that the company wants to detect when a user is drowning and alert authorities in such cases.
The Apple Watch (Series 0) was first released by Apple in 2015. However, before releasing the product, Apple had been internally testing the wearable for over a year. Giulio Zompetti, a 27-year-old from Northern Italy, has managed to get his hands on six Apple Watch prototypes from 2014.
The current-generation Apple Watch is currently the best smartwatch in the market, thanks to its hardware quality and software ecosystem. The company has already embedded fall detection and heart-rate detection features in the Apple Watch Series 5, and if rumors are to be believed, the company could also bring panic attack detection to the next Apple Watch.
Apple had released the first developer beta builds of iOS 13.4.5, iPadOS 13.4.5, macOS 10.15.5, and tvOS 13.4.5 to its devices yesterday, but Apple Watches didn’t receive a new developer beta of watchOS. However, the company has now released watchOS 6.2.5 developer beta 1 to its smartwatches.
Earlier this month we learned that Apple will be baking in a new SchoolTime mode and kid mode. The premise of these features is that it allows kids to use Apple Watch without the need of owning an iPhone.
The rumor mills predict that Apple is prepping Touch ID fingerprint biometrics for Apple Watch. If this turns out to be true Apple Watch users will be able to lock/unlock their device by using Touch ID.
