The latest Apple Watch Series 8 smartwatch, which is likely to be officially presented at the company’s presentation this fall, will receive a special sensor that can read the user’s body temperature. And it is this sensor, thanks to advanced technology and the Cupertino giant’s own developments, that will be able to determine if the owner has a fever by the owner’s temperature, according to Mark Gurman, a technical specialist and an insider from Bloomberg. According to the journalist, the smart watch will detect bursts of body temperature, prompting the user to use a thermometer and consult a doctor.
Gurman also added that the body temperature sensor still has to pass the company’s internal tests, and if it manages to pass a number of tests, then Apple will indeed integrate the technology into its next smartwatch. In addition, according to an insider, the same function will be added to the new protected watch for extreme athletes, which will also be presented at the upcoming presentation. The company itself does not comment on the appearance of this device, so such information should be treated with a grain of salt. But the entry-level watch Apple Watch SE will not receive a new temperature sensor, which is quite expected – that’s why they are affordable.
However, as happens with rumors regarding Apple, it is not necessary to talk about one hundred percent reliable information – the same journalist said back in June 2021 that the company plans to integrate the same sensor into its new watch. This, unfortunately, did not happen, but perhaps then the sensor was simply not quite ready for full operation. Now, after a year of additional testing and testing, the technology may well get to a full-fledged release. And legendary analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also believes that Apple will add the latest development to its watches before the end of this year.
