According to South Korean media, the new Apple Watch Series 7 smartwatch will support blood glucose detection using an optical sensor.
Blood glucose monitoring plays an important role in detecting diabetes and other diseases. However, nowadays, measuring blood glucose requires the use of professional equipment such as blood glucose meters. Apple Watch Series 7 will measure without blood sampling using an optical sensor.
According to reports, Apple has received a patent for monitoring blood glucose levels. The company strives to “ensure technical reliability and stability before commercialization.” Industry officials believe Apple’s optical sensor can provide accurate monitoring without taking blood.
Apple already has a team of biomedical engineers and consultants. The relevant developments have been underway since 2017. The sensor is reportedly being tested at clinical centers in the San Francisco Bay Area. It also became known that Tim Cook personally tested a prototype of the sensor connected to the Apple Watch.
Earlier it was reported that the new Apple Watch will use a microLED display with tactile feedback.

iPhone App of the Year is BeReal, which lets you share photos and chat with friends. It does not have filters and masks, so the pictures are as vivid as possible, close to reality. Apex Legends Mobile was named the best game for iPhone.
The iPad App of the Year was GoodNotes 5 by Time Base Technology Limited, which “takes digital note-taking to the next level with best-in-class Apple Pencil support.”

Now Apple Watch Ultra can be used to the fullest. Oceanic+ diving app now available
Despite the fact that the Apple Watch Ultra has been on sale for some time, only now the watch has received one of the important applications.
Apple today announced the launch of Oceanic+. It is this application that actually turns an Apple watch into a diving computer. Since the watch can be submerged to a depth of 40 meters, this is not just marketing.
Interestingly, Apple did not develop the application itself. Even in the press release, the company says that it was created together with Huish Outdoors, which specializes in diving products.
Huish Outdoors specialists note that one of their main tasks was to make the software intuitive and convenient, since diving computers are usually very specific in this matter.
Oceanic+, among other things, allows you, for example, to plan your dive by specifying time, depth and other parameters in advance. The application is able, based on the input data, to calculate the no-decompression time, an indicator used to determine the time limit for a diver at a certain depth. The planner also takes into account diving conditions, including tides, water temperature, and even up-to-date information from the diving community, such as visibility and current strength.
