A patent reveals the temperature sensor in the Apple Watch Series 8

Apple Watch Series 8

Much has been said about whether the new Apple Watch that should be presented in September could bring new sensors. It seems that the evidence that has just appeared confirms that it is more than probable that yes bring the expected and longed for temperature sensor. In addition, it seems that this sensor will have a fairly high effectiveness and accuracy. So we are in luck all of us who expected this addition to the Apple Watch.

Just weeks before the launch of the Apple Watch expected in September, Apple has issued a patent in which a new temperature sensor is disclosed that would supposedly be destined for that device. From what can be read in the patent, the new sensor will have amazing precision, which would turn the clock into a complete command and control center. The patent titled ┬źTemperature gradient detection in electronic devices┬╗, it can be applied to many devices, but it will almost certainly appear in the new version of the Apple watch, since this sensor has been rumored a lot in the preceding months.

According to the patent, the system works calculating the difference between two ends of a probe. One end touches the surface to be measured, while the other is connected to a temperature sensor. The voltage difference between the different ends of the probe can be correlated to a differential temperature measurement. The crucial piece of information is when it can be read, that the sensor can be used to measure the "absolute temperature" of an external surface, such as skin. Apple explicitly mentions how the location of the external probe can be located on a back surface, such as a smartwatch back glass, and says the system includes a high-precision, high-precision absolute temperature sensor.

We must bear in mind that whenever we talk about patents, anything can happen. We can see how it becomes a reality or how it stays as an idea on paper. But it is true that this time, With the previous rumours, we can think that it will come true.
