Apple event 2020: iPhone giant unveils Series 6 Watch with blood oxygen monitor

Telegraph, 16 Sep 2020
Apple has unveiled its Series 6 Watch with a blood oxygen sensor to help detect signs of Covid-19, alongside new versions of its iPad, Apple One subscription bundles and a fitness class service to rival Peloton.

The string of announcements came during a virtual version of Apple’s September event on Tuesday, an annual affair in which the company typically unveils new iPhones.

The company has had to delay the release of its smartphone by several weeks, forcing it to focus on the supporting cast of products and services it is relying on to be its newer growth engines amid a mature mobile phone market.

The key feature of Apple’s latest watch, the Series 6, was a blood oxygen monitor that uses a series of sensors to measure light reflected off a wearer’s blood.
