Various means have reflected the last article by DigiTimes, in which it is stated that the Apple Watch Series 6 that we will see presented this fall will finally carry the necessary sensors to detect oxygen in blood. Measurements of that oxygen will represent an advance in detecting cardiovascular conditions.
We take time seeing traces of this functionality in iOS 14, when some developers were able to access parts of their code even months before WWDC20. Now that DigiTimes mentions its internal sources from Asian vendors to affirm it, the rumor is much more reliable.
The Apple Watch that will prevent respiratory and brain problems
Apple takes time behind reaching this detection on their devices wearables, becoming rumored even for future generations of the AirPods. Being able to know what oxygen levels we have in our blood can even help us detect respiratory problems in advance, which with timely treatment can prevent long-term heart or even brain problems.
The presentation of the iPhone this year has been delayed to October, and the Apple Watch are always presented by the hand of the phones. The safest, therefore, is that we see those Apple Watch also in october with a launch scheduled for that month or perhaps November.
