Apple Watch Series 6 to Gain Touch ID, Pulse Oximeter, Sleep Tracking [Report]

Apple's next generation Apple Watch may feature some significant improvements including Touch ID, the ability to measure blood oxygen levels, sleep tracking, and more, reports The Verifier.

The ability to measure blood oxygen levels and sleep tracking will allegedly arrive as part of watchOS 7. Evidence of these features had already been found in a leaked build of iOS 14.

The site system has learned that Apple is working on a feature that will measure the amount of oxygen in the blood, and the possibility of monitoring the quality of sleep will be added to the system and the watch this year. The latest feature is only requested, especially after the acquisition of Beddit by Apple in 2017, and the launch of an external accessory to measure sleep quality, Beddit 3.5, as early as 2018

In terms of hardware updates, the site claims that Apple will add more battery life and broad support for LTE and WiFi 6. The improved battery capacity will be important because measuring blood oxygen and sleeping tracking will strain battery life. Additionally, Apple will purportedly add a Touch ID sensor to the digital crown for Series 6. Somewhat questionably, Touch ID is predicted to then move to below the display for Series 7.

While in Series 6, launched this year, the option of unlocking the watch will be added with a fingerprint embedded on the "crown" of the watch (the physical button on the side of the watch) in the next version ( Series 7?) Will support the fingerprint clock below the screen itself

Apple is expected to unveil its next generation Apple Watch this fall. Please download the iClarified app or follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and RSS for updates.
