Apple has made available the second WatchOS 7.1 public beta firmware for the end-users. The latest software has brought two missing features to the new Apple Watch Series 6 smartwatch. The Blood oxygen level or SpO2 and some watch faces are now back to the watch. In the initial firmware offering, the blood oxygen saturation function was available on Series 6, but later, Apple removed it in the first public beta. Now, in the second public beta update WatchOS 7.1, all the beta users can use it.
The other changes were in the watch face section. In the watch face area some exclusive WatchOS 7 faces were missing from the wearable. Now, those are also back to glow the screen of the new watch. If you are the part of Apple’s beta program, then head to the iPhone – General – Software update. Install the new version, and you will get all these features. The general users will get all these functions when the company decides to release the stable version. The stable version could release at the end of this month or early next month.
The Watch SE is not the part of Blood oxygen & Always-on display, though it will get exclusive watch faces and some other features. The Apple Watch Series 6 is now available to purchase in all the major countries, including North America and Europe. Like you, I am also waiting for it in India, so I could review it and tell you my experience with it. I will inform you when it goes on sale in the country.
