Apple’s upcoming flagship smartwatch will have a 5 percent larger display and be able to track your body temperature to determine if you have a fever, leaks suggest.
According to prolific Apple whistleblower Mark Gurman in Los Angelesthe firm will add body temperature detection to its Series 8 model, which is expected to be released this fall.
Meanwhile, another leader, Ross Young in Austin, Texasclaims the Series 8’s screen size will be 1.99 inches diagonally.
This would make the Series 8 the largest Apple Watch screen, although the largest on the market overall is the Domiwear DM100 with a whopping 2.86-inch screen.
By comparison, last year’s Apple Watch Series 7 was available with a 1691-inch or 1901-inch screen.
Apple is expected to release a total of three smartwatches this fall, including the Series 8, which is also rumored to feature a flat screen.

Apple has released a new flagship Apple Watch every year since 2015. The 2021 Apple Watch Series 7 (pictured) was released this fall with 33% faster charging and a larger display, starting at £369.
APPLE SERIES 8: RUMORED FEATURES
– 1.99 inch display
– Flat screen
– Body temperature detection
– Other new health tracking features
Yang answered a question on twitterwhile Gurman wrote in the latest issue of his Power On newsletter.
“The body temperature feature won’t give you a specific reading like a forehead or wrist thermometer, but it should be able to tell if it thinks you have a fever,” Gurman says in the newsletter.
“Then he may recommend talking to a doctor or using a special thermometer.”
He added that other than the body temperature sensor, other hardware changes in the new smartwatch are “likely to be minor.”
The gourmand is described as “respectable” and has a good track record when it comes to accurate leaks of the tech giant’s products.
Apple Track, a blog that follows Apple rumors and the sources that publish them, currently gives it an 86.5% accuracy rating.
Young has an even more impressive track record, currently at 92.5% on Apple Track.
Gourmet has already suggested that the Series 8 will also have a flat screen, rather than a screen with curved edges like the Series 7.

“Protected” watches will be more durable and scratch resistant to compete with rival firms including Garmin and Coros.
The body temperature feature is coming to the Apple Watch 8 and “protected” Apple Watch, but not to the Apple Watch SE 2, Gurman claims in his latest newsletter.
As for the updated version of the Apple Watch SE, Gurman revealed fewer details in his newsletters.
SE is the name of low-cost Apple products – not only smartwatches, but also iPhones. In 2020, Apple released the iPhone SE 2, four years after the original iPhone SE was released.
The £249 Apple Watch SE, also released in September 2020, is a cheaper option for wearers but lacks features like an always-on display, blood oxygen sensor, and electrocardiogram (ECG).
Gurman did not mention what updates will be included in the 2022 version, which is supposed to be called the Apple Watch SE 2, or if it will be more expensive than the original.

In March 2021, Gurman said that Apple would release a rumored “Explorer Edition”. Pictured: Apple Watch Series 6 (released 2020)
It is likely that the three Apple smartwatches that make up the 2022 lineup will be released in the fall, when the iPhone 14 is expected to be released.
Apple has released a new flagship Apple Watch every year since 2015. Last year’s Apple Watch Series 7 launched last fall with 33% faster charging and a larger display, starting at £369.
Rumors about a rugged Apple Watch from Gourman appear not for the first time – in March 2021. he reported The “Explorer Edition” will feature a stronger rubber frame and additional impact resistance to withstand extreme conditions.
He said it would launch later this year or early 2022, but it looks like his release date estimates have now been pushed back.
Apple considered a more ruggedized version of its Apple Watch when it first released the wearable to much fanfare in 2015, but never released the product to consumers.
The iPhone 14 Pro will have always-on display mode, just like the Apple Watch, the report says.
coming iphone The 14 Pro will have a always-on display mode just like the Apple Watch, the leaker claims.
According to Mark Gurman, the iPhone will be able to display a small amount of “quick view” information before its screen is unlocked.
Such a function would be similar to android phones that always display basic information like time and battery level on a dark screen while conserving power.
According to Apple, always-on is enabled by default on Apple Watch Series 5 and later, with the exception of Apple Watch SE.
“In this mode, the time will always be displayed along with the watch face or the last active application,” the company says.
