Apple has released watchOS 7 to the public. The newest version of the watchOS operating system is available for download and install on the Apple Watch Series 4, Series 4, and Series 5.

What's New

watchOS 7 let you discover and share Apple Watch faces, you can share faces with friends through Messages or Mail, and discover through the App Store or even from links through websites and social media. Developers now have the ability to offer more than one complication per app on a single watch face. 

Thanks to watchOS 7, Apple Watch can now track your sleep, users get their desired amount of sleep, get to bed on time, and create a pre-bedtime routine to meet their sleep goals. Through the detection of micro-movements from the watch’s accelerometer, Apple Watch intelligently captures when the wearer is sleeping and how much sleep they get each night. In the morning, the wearer will see a visualization of their previous night’s sleep, including periods of wake and sleep. They will also see a chart showing their weekly sleep trend.

To help users wake up, Apple Watch offers a silent haptic alarm or gentle sounds, while the wake-up screen shows the current battery level. Depending on personal charging behavior, if the battery is too low within an hour of bedtime, Apple Watch will remind users to charge it ahead of sleep. Sleep data is encrypted on the device or in iCloud with iCloud sync, and data is always in the user’s control.

Also new is Automatic Handwashing Detection, Apple Watch uses the motion sensors, microphone, and on-device machine learning to automatically detect handwashing motions and sounds. It then initiates a 20-second countdown timer, and if the user finishes early, they will be prompted to keep washing. Apple Watch can also conveniently remind the user to wash their hands when they return home.

watchOS 7 brings four exciting new workout types supported by powerful heart rate and custom-built motion algorithms: Core Training, Dance, Functional Strength Training, and Cooldown. On the iPhone, the redesigned Activity app is now called Fitness, provides a streamlined view of data including daily Activity, Workouts, Awards, and Activity Trends on one tab, and Activity Sharing and Activity Competitions on another.

watchOS 7 also adds further support for hearing health with headphone audio notifications. Users can now understand how loudly they are listening to media through their headphones using their iPhone, iPod touch, or Apple Watch, and when these levels may impact hearing over time.
