Apple’s upcoming Apple Watch Series 8 could benefit from a new feature that would allow people to measure their body temperature for the first time. That’s according to a new series of tweets by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
In those tweets, Kuo says that Apple had originally planned to be able to add the same body temperature sensor to the previous Apple Watch Series 7 device that went on sale last year.
However, that all ended up going wrong after the company was unable to get the feature to work the way that it wanted to. However, Kuo believes that Apple will intend to get the feature into the Apple Watch Series 8 that will be announced later this year — but only if the previous issues have been corrected.
Apple canceled body temperature measurement for Apple Watch 7 because the algorithm failed to qualify before entering EVT stage last year. I believe Apple Watch 8 in 2H22 could take body temperature if the algorithm can meet Apple’s high requirements before mass production.
Previous reports by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman had previously suggested that we wouldn’t be seeing any new sensors in the new Apple Watch Series 8 this year, but if this report is accurate, that isn’t the case at all.
We’re still a while away from Apple announcing the new Apple Watch, which does indeed give Apple time to get things ready to go. We’ll know for sure as we get closer to the big release in or around September or October.
