Apple unveils new iPhone, Apple Watch
Apple has unveiled two new products overnight, including a new look iPhone and Apple Watch.
It began by revealing the Apple Watch Series 4, which it claims is the number one watch in the world.
It has a new display with a screen which is 30 percent larger than previous models, and perhaps the biggest draw card – a built in electrocardiogram scan.
This heart rate sensor can now detect atrial fibrillation, a heart condition that leads to irregular beating of the heart.
"We've added electrodes to the back of the Watch, and the digital crown allows you to take an electrocardiogram," Apple's chief operating officer Jeff Williams said.
It is the first ECG product offered over the counter directly to customers.
Another health feature in the new Apple Watch is the ability to detect a fall.
"Identifying a fall may sound like a straightforward problem, but it requires a tremendous amount of data and analysis. We learned that with falls, there is a repeatable data pattern,” Mr Williams said.
If the watch senses the user is immobile for a minute following a fall, it will automatically call emergency services and send the location to your emergency contact.
"It's a feature that we hope you never need, but it's really nice to know it's there,” he said.
In addition, the new display is thinner than the previous models and lighter.
“You’ll see more in maps, in calendar, in photo,” Mr Williams said.
Pictures of loved ones can be added to the face and simply tap them to get in contact.
Different time zones can be added to the interchangeable face as well as fitness trackers.
