Just a few days ago Apple released watchOS 7.1 Beta 1 and now Apple released the second developer preview version of watchOS 7.1 to developers. Apple previously announced the watchOS 7 versions at the Global Developers Conference. watchOS 7 brings many new features, including sleep tracking, new watch face features, and improved fitness features.
Users who update the watchOS 7.1 developer preview version can download it through the Apple Watch app on iPhone. Last week, the official version of watchOS 7.0.1 was pushed, fixing the issue that some payment cards in the “wallet” of some users were disabled.
New faces to make your own: From fun to functional, there is a wide variety of new watch faces to try. And there are more ways of customizing faces with colors and complications than ever before.
Face Sharing: Share faces you’ve created by texting, emailing or posting a link online.
Sleep App: Sleep is one of the most important aspects of your health, but also one of the least understood. Tracking is a good start, but the new Sleep app goes further. It helps you create a schedule and a bedtime routine so you can meet your sleep goals.
Fitness: Four new workouts give you an exercise partner with even more flexibility. And the Activity app on iPhone has been redesigned and renamed Fitness.
Cycling in Maps: Your watch already taps you on the wrist when it’s time to turn, making it great for cycling. Now Maps has directions just for cyclists.
Handwashing: Keeping your hands clean has never been more important. With watchOS 7, Apple Watch automatically detects when you begin washing and helps you keep going for the amount of time recommended by global health organizations.
Siri Updates: Siri is fundamental to the Apple Watch experience. You can do almost anything on your watch hands-free, just by asking. Now Siri can do even more, faster.
Hearing Health: To help protect your hearing, watchOS 6 introduced the Noise app. Now we’re giving you more ways to keep your hearing safe as well as more control over how you listen.
