Apple Watch 6 (pictured) has several health-related features, and the next year's version will add some new ones, report claims.

The Apple Watch 7 is around the corner, but we’ve already have some reports about features in next year’s iteration, the Apple Watch 8.

According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via Apple Insider), Apple plans to include a body temperature monitor in the next year’s Watch — a feature that sounds quite handy during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The inclusion of a body temperature sensor wouldn’t feel out of place given Apple’s commitment to adding health-related features to the Watch. The current iteration of the wearable, the Apple Watch 6, has a heart rate sensor, a blood oxygen monitor, and a simple electrocardiogram.



We’d much rather see the body temperature sensor in this year’s iteration of the watch, but that now appears very unlikely. However, Kuo has some good news about the Apple Watch 7, too.

Following reports that the Apple Watch 7 will be in short supply when it launches due to manufacturing issues, Kuo claims that Apple has overcome these issues, and that the device will be launched this month.

Kuo also chimed in on the new features of the Apple Watch 7, claiming that the biggest change will be a “dramatic change in design.” We’ve previously heard that the Watch 7 will have a flatter design and a slightly bigger display, which doesn’t sound that dramatic — though it’s worth noting that the Watch has had the same, rounded design ever since its first iteration.

We’re likely to find out more about the upcoming iPhone 13 and the Apple Watch 7 on Sept. 14, so stay tuned for updates.
