It appears that Apple is making some huge changes to Apple watchOS 7. According to 9to5Mac, the new updates of Apple watchOS 7 will include sleep tracking. However, it’s not a big surprise to Apple fans because the Apple Watch sleep tracking has been the talk of the town for a month. The reports are based on leaked iOS 14 code, and watchOS 7 is said to include a new personalized sleep goal in the Health app on an iPhone that will also be used to improve sleep duration and quality.
Another big addition that’s rumored for watchOS 7 is the ability to share your watchfaces with friends and family. This will reportedly allow Apple Watch users to share faces from the Watch app on iOS. This sharing feature doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll get full custom watchfaces, but it’s a start toward being able to share watchfaces with others.
Moreover, it is reported that watchOS 7 will involve a new Infograph Pro watchface with a tachymeter feature. Tachymeters are used on analog watches to covert elapsed time into a speed calculation based on travel time or the distance measured. As reported by 9to5Mac, watchOS 7 will also feature with the parental controls for Apple Watches used by children, improvements to photos-based watchfaces, and changes to Watch apps so they’re no longer based on extensions.
Apple typically details its iOS and watchOS plans at the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June, but Apple has not unveiled a date for WWDC 2020 just yet. Given the worldwide novel coronavirus outbreak and its impact on tech conferences this year, it’s difficult to say when we might hear more about iOS 14 and watchOS 7.
