New Apple Watch can detect you falling, and heart rate irregularities

Apple to enable the eSIM chip on the 2018 iPhone models with a future iOS 12 update New Apple Watch can detect you falling, and heart rate irregularities

Apple's dual SIM solution, in the USA, would enable someone to use AT&T, Verizon, or T-Mobile (but not Sprint) as their primary carrier while using any carrier that offers a SIM card as the secondary carrier. More importantly, Apple kicked off a one-year iPhone battery replacement program that reduced the fix fee from $79 to $29.

The Apple Watch is getting some big upgrades.

While online sentiment was mixed, an obvious key focus was the high price tag - also a target of criticism around the launch of the iPhone X previous year.

Two years later, Apple called its watch "the ultimate device for a healthy life", emphasizing water resistance for swimmers and built-in Global Positioning System for tracking runs or cycling workouts.

On the back of the watch we don't see much visible changes, however we now find a new improved optical heartrate sensor which is able to detect the heart rhythm.

EKGs are important tests of heart health and typically require a visit to the doctor. The feature gained an onstage endorsement from Ivor Benjamin, a cardiologist who is president of the American Heart Association.

Some tech commentators are speculating that Apple is behind schedule developing the AirPower, which it first previewed one year ago, and have linked this to Apple's acquisition of the charging startup PowerbyProxi. I don't think iPhone users care about modem performance, and the XR's screen and camera are both very, very good-probably good enough to make iPhone buyers wonder why they should spend more.

This new features will be available to US customers later this year, Apple said - an indication that it may not be ready for launch. A new app will say whether each reading is normal or shows signs of atrial fibrillation, an irregular heart rate that increases the risk of heart complications, such as stroke and heart failure.

Instead of using the button to unlock your phone, the new models come with Apple's FaceID facial-recognition technology.

"Looking for the next wave, Apple is clearly expanding into augmented reality and wearables with the Apple Watch and AirPods wireless headphones", the firm said.

But while Bloomberg and Kuo still expect AirPower to launch this year, Apple is no longer saying so on its website.

But here's the thing: While everyone else gets dual SIM capability via a single physical nano SIM combined with a digital eSIM, China gets something unique.

Apple will likely hold another event later this year where it will announce a MacBook Air overhaul with a new design and higher-resolution display, a new MacBook Mini for professional users, and new iPad Pro models with FaceID and smaller bezels around the display. If a fall is detected and the person remains immobile for more than a minute, the device automatically calls their emergency contact.

The Bluetooth/GPS model will start at $399, while the version with cellular connectivity will run you $499. It used that data to separate real falls from other heavy wrist movements, such as clapping and hammering. Younger people can activate it in the settings.
