Apple has rolled out watchOS 7.1 for Apple Watch users, following two minor releases previously. It comes alongside iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2.
The new update comes with ECG app support in South Korea and Russia. There’s also hearing health protections included that lets Apple Watch send out a notification when headphones are playing music at a loud volume that can impact hearing.
watchOS 7.1 contains new features, improvements, and bug fixes.
- Adds the ability to be notified when your headphone audio level could impact your hearing
- Adds support for the ECG app on Apple Watch Series 4 or later in the Republic of Korea and Russia
- Adds support for irregular heart rhythm notifications in the Republic of Korea and Russia
- Resolves an issue that prevented some users from unlocking a Mac with Apple Watch
- Fixes an issue where the screen may be dark on wrist raise for some Apple Watch Series 6 owners.
WatchOS 7.1 can be downloaded for free on compatible devices through the Apple Watch app on the iPhone; tap on General and then go for Software Update. Apple also released watchOS 5.3.9 and watchOS 6.2.9 for older Apple Watch models.
To install the new software update, the Apple Watch needs to have at least 50 percent battery and should be placed on a charger within the range of the iPhone.
