New Sleep app for Apple Watch spotted

The image that's now in the description for the Alarms app makes no reference to a Sleep app, so it seems like Apple goofed by accidentally leaking that little tidbit a bit early.

Someone found a reference to a mysterious sleep app on the Apple Watch, and it could be an Apple sleep app.

It's expected that, when the Sleep app releases alongside the Time in Bed feature, a new watch face will also become available. One thing missing, however, is native support for Sleep tracking.

The screenshot chosen by Apple explicitly mentions the Sleep application, now not present on watchOS.

If you own an Apple Watch you can track your sleep with a third party application, but, at this particular moment, there's no Apple solution for achieving this. However, both the features were restricted to the USA only. This feature is already available on the iPhone but not on the Apple Watch. However, Apple has spared no official details about this feature on its release.

The device can measure the heart rate and warn about irregular patterns and detect falls, which are two features that could undoubtedly improve the lives of elderly patients. Apple Watch models will now monitor noise to alert users of "hearing health".

9to5Mac notes that if a user wakes up and starts their day before the alarm sounds, the Apple Watch will automatically disable the alert.

Viewers can browse the Twitch app on Apple TV by game, and also quickly jump into popular live streams.

Whether that means Apple is planning to introduce a light wake up call in the form of vibrations on your wrist remains to be seen, as the screenshot doesn't exactly give much away, but it shows that the feature was set to be included in the original launch of watchOS 6 and had to be scrapped.
