In addition to the previously exposed blood oxygen detection function, 9to5Mac disclosed more new features of the Apple Watch 6 and WatchOS 7. These new features are still in the iOS 14 code. The most important thing that has been discovered is that it will support sleep monitoring.
Here are some new features we are talking about:
- More professional modular dial: In WatchOS7, Apple’s professional modular dial will add tachymeter function. The tachymeter can be used to calculate speed based on time.
- Share watch faces: WatchOS 7 will allow users to share specific watch face configurations with each other.
- Photo watch face: In WatchOS7, you can use shared albums to make watch faces.
- Parental control: WatchOS7 can more easily allow parents to control their children’s Apple Watch using the iPhone, which uses the child mode.
- School hours: Allows parents to control which apps their children can use during class.
- Control Center: The control center adds sleep mode support and noise detection.
- Architecture upgrade: In WatchOS 7, applications no longer need to be based on extensions.
Of course, the most important thing is that the Apple Watch 6 and WatchOS 7 are expected to include a sleep monitoring function, which has been rumored many times before. According to 9to5Mac, the sleep monitoring feature has been confirmed in the iOS 14 code, and users will be able to set personalized sleep goals in the iPhone’s Health app. The latter will also provide suggestions for improving sleep.
WatchOS 7 details are expected to be announced at Apple’s Global Developer Conference.
