Next Apple Watch may come with sleep tracking feature

San Francisco: Apple is working on a sleep tracking feature called `Time in Bed tracking` for its new range of Apple wearables.

The new feature will give users the option to wear the Apple in their sleep and if they do, data such as heart rate, motion, and noise, will be used to monitor the sleep quality, news portal 9TO5MAC reported.

Sleep tracking has been available via a variety of third-party apps but Apple has never provided its own sleep tracking feature.

The Cupertino-based company is expected to launch the new feature as early as next week when the company is expected to announce new iPhones along with Apple Series 5.

Apple Series 5 model is expected to use Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) screens supplied by Japan Display, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

According to Kuo, Japan Display would gradually increase its proportion of OLED display orders for the Apple , starting with 15-20 percent of orders in 2019 and reaching 70-80 percent in 2021.

He believes that Apple would also gradually increase the proportion of LG`s supply of OLED displays for iPhones and tap Chinese manufacturer BOE as an additional supplier, in a bid to diversify its supply chain.

Recently, Brazilian site iHelp BR spotted graphics hidden in the beta code of watchOS 6 that points to ceramic and titanium casings quite possibly for the Apple 5, alongside stainless steel for the Apple 4.
