Apple is planning to introduce a new sleep tracking feature which is called ‘Time in Bed tracking’ for its new Apple Watch series.
According to the 9to5Mac report on Monday, by using this feature, users will have the option to wear the Apple Watch while sleeping and the data such as heart rate, motion, and noise, will be used to monitor the sleep quality.
9to5Mac also mentioned that “When wearing the Watch during bedtime, if the user wakes up and starts their day before their alarm goes off, it will automatically turn off the alarm. The alarm will also play only on Apple Watch, using the iPhone as a backup. There will also be an option to use a silent alarm that only vibrates the Apple Watch. The new bedtime system will enable Do Not Disturb automatically when the user goes to bed. There will also be a new complication available for sleep tracking.”
As we know already the sleeping tracking feature has been available via different third-party applications but this time Apple decided to provide its own sleep tracking feature.
The Cupertino-based company is planning to launch this new feature next week when this company is expected to announce new iPhones along with Apple Watch Series 5.
According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is going to use OLED screens in its Apple Watch Series 5 model which will be supplied by Japan Display.
According to Kuo, Japan Display is going to increase its proportion of OLED display orders for the Apple Watch starting with 15-20 percent of orders in 2019 and it will reach 70-80 percent in 2021.
Kuo believes that Apple will also gradually increase the proportion of LG’s supply of OLED displays for iPhone models and tap Chinese manufacturer BOE as an additional supplier, in a bid to diversify its supply chain.
Recently, the hidden graphics in the beta code of watchOS 6 was discovered by Brazilian site iHelp BR that points Apple is going to use ceramic and titanium casings for the Apple Watch 5, alongside stainless steel for the Apple Watch 4.
Apple has already launched a new screen replacement programme for aluminum models of the Apple Watch Series 2 and 3.
According to this company, under very rare situations a crack may form along the rounded edge of the screen in aluminum models of a Watch Series 2 or 3. The crack might develop on one side and continue around the screen, the company said on Friday”.
This new screen replacement programme will cover only a specific type of screen cracking in models sold between September 2016 and September 2019.
