Apple has recently unveiled it’s latest and greatest Apple Watch – Series 9, powered by the new S9 chipset.
Apple’s has spent quite some time talking about how this new neural engine chip will improve the overall AI performance. The watch includes a new feature called “Double Tap,” which allows users to interact with the watch without touching the screen. All they have to do is tap their index finger and thumb together to interact with their watch.
Double Tap is powered by the neural engine, which tracks changes in blood flow to detect when the user is about to tap their fingers together. It can be used to do a number of things, such as dismissing notifications, launching apps, and picking up calls. It is a convenient way to interact with the watch without having to take it off your wrist.
The neural engine is also being used in the new Find My iPhone feature. This feature has been improved to be more accurate, thanks to the new UWB (Ultra-wideband) chip and it can now tell you exactly where your iPhone is located, even if it is in your pocket – much like an AirTag.
The watch comes in two sizes: 41mm and 45mm, starting in at $399. It’s available to pre-order today, and will officially be introduced on 22nd September.
This is all we know for now, but rest assured that we will keep you updated as new information becomes available.
