WWDC 2022 is only a couple of weeks away and among the various operating systems that Apple is expected to preview is watchOS 9, the next major release for Apple Watch.
Although little is known about watchOS 9, Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman gives a few tidbits about what to expect from this year’s watchOS thanks to rumors about Apple Watch Series 8:
• Afib burden detection, or the ability to monitor how often a user is in a state of atrial fibrillation over a particular period;
• A low-power mode that works with apps and features, expanding upon the Power Reserve toggle;
• Satellite connectivity for sending short text messages and SOS alerts to emergency services when away from cellular connectivity;
• New sleep tracking feature;
• New women’s health and medication tracking features within the Health app;
• New workouts;
• New and revamped watch faces.
MacDailyNews Take: Apple will smartly keep the focus on fitness and health, two of Apple Watch’s biggest selling points.
