Apple’s iPhone Series is not the only product line-up that is being waited upon. Watch 8 Series, which is expected to launch alongside the iPhone 14 Series is also in the news for what it will bring to the table this time. It seems like we have finally found out what major upgrade Apple Watch 8 Series will witness. According to Mark Gurman, Watch 8 Series will be equipped with a new body temperature sensor.

The Body Temperature Sensor will be a part of the standard Apple Watch 8 Series as well as the new rugged edition as well. However, it won’t be seen in the new SE edition of the watch which is also expected to launch in 2022. This is not actually surprising as the SE variant often misses out on some features which are available in other Apple Watches.

How will the body temperature sensor work?

Security analyst Ming Chi-Kuo first revealed about this body temperature sensor claiming that the company has been working hard to develop an algorithm that will allow users to measure body temperature.

However, the latest we hear from Gurman is that the sensor will not work exactly like a thermometer as it will not give a precise reading from the wrist. The watch will only alert if one has a fever. This means it will encourage users to talk to a doctor if their body temperature shows continuous hikes or hikes which are unusual.

Apart from this, the Apple Watch 8 Series is not expected to feature any other hardware upgrade. The processor is expected to be similar to the one used on Series 6 and 7. The design of the watch 8 series will mostly remain the same with them having flat edges this time.

Earlier there were speculations that not only the watch, but the AirPods pro might also see some health sensors like heart rate or body temperature. But now, Gurman has negated these rumors claiming that the company is still in the process of exploring the idea of including these features in the AirPods.

Although they might appear in the coming years, 2022 is definitely not the year for these additions. Apple’s AirPods Pro was launched in 2019 and is due for an update this year. The brand is expected to improve audio quality, noise canceling, and bring spatial audio.
