Apple Watch Series 6 & SE Hidden Features! 6+ Apple Secrets

by birtanpublished on October 2, 2020

This video is brought to you by dollar shave club yo what's up guys sam here hope all of you are doing well i got my hands on apple watch series 6 and apple watch se which are the 2020 wearables from everybody's favorite fruit company but instead of talking about the big features for these devices like an always-on altimeter for the ac or of course blood oxygen monitoring for the series 6 i want to look a little bit closer it's some hidden features some other tidbits that apple didn't tell you when they announced these i

Learned a lot making this video so i guarantee there's one thing that you don't know on this list so if you're excited for it drop a like down below hit subscribe for more and let's go ahead and get started with number one so looking at the packaging for the series six and the new sc it's relatively similar right like it looks the same as last year maybe even the year before and you got the watch you got your ban but if you look a little bit closer there's something missing there's something pretty big that's not in the

Box this year and that is the charger apple has announced that because of their environmental initiatives and the fact that they want to go so green uh they will no longer be including a power brick in the box now they generously and graciously give you a charging cable you know i mean we're we are truly blessed to still have that in the box but the actual brick itself is gone to me this is ridiculous you know no matter what you're paying like you now have to find either a usb

Port or a brick you already have to use i'm already annoyed by it now apple though is gonna do the same thing with the iphone 12 so soon you're just not gonna have a power brick at all shocking i know but hey i guess they didn't become a two trillion dollar company by making everybody happy but they didn't cheap out entirely because if you buy either the apple watch series six or the se from apple.com you do get three months free of an upcoming apple service now we all feel

A different way about apple services and recurring revenue but this service is called apple fitness plus and while it's not out yet it could actually be a big part of apple's services lineup in the future apple says it's going to be launching by the end of the year and it's not your traditional fitness service where it works on just your mac or just your ipad or you watch videos in fact an apple watch is actually required to use the service so with the three months free you're getting it it's going to be able to display things like your heart

Rate maybe even your percentage of oxygen if you're using the series 6 on your tv on your ipad display to be a bit more immersive and a bit more connected than just a static video that you watch to try to get a good workout on the series 6 you know the headlining feature is the blood oxygen sensor apple's talked about it you've seen the app in action but what does it like literally do right now i mean it basically runs this little test for 15 seconds while your arm is laying flat

And then it tells you how much oxygen saturation your blood has but apple's actually planning to do way more with this in the future and one of the coolest applications is for mental health now this feature didn't make the cut yet but as soon as next year apple's planning to use this data to tell you more things about yourself and one of the coolest and i don't know kind of mind-bending applications they're working on is to warn you if you're about to have a panic attack if you've never gone

Through that just know it's one of the scariest feelings you will ever experience but what if your watch could prevent that from happening apple is working to use this blood oxygen sensor to notice changes in your blood chemistry and before you have a panic attack warn you that they think you could be feeling really scared and nervous and then give you guided breathing exercises in an attempt to calm you down before it gets really bad if somebody who struggles

With their mental health who has anxiety this is an incredibly powerful application and if apple could do this it it makes me guess what else they're working on with the sensor in the future this is a common theme for i feel like the series 6 setting themselves up for success in the future with technology that they couldn't wait to put in but that doesn't do a ton right this second the apple watch 36 health features don't end there though the watch can also shave your face automatically nah uh-oh

Sorry we gotta cut it there all right kid uh i gotta break something to you it uh it's not the watch it's been shaving you it's been me and dollar shave club we've been sneaking into your room every night what yep you told me it was the watch that did it yeah it's really a miracle you look this good to be honest uh we had some we had some close calls there so you kidding me is this real you snuck this here too all right listen i i guess we're just going with it let's just

Let's just do it live all right so this is dollar shave club starter box yeah inside you're getting the prep scrub the butter and the post shave do just to be complimented by the executive handle and the super high quality blades when you combine it with the tubes of joy you just get to shave and it's like the smoothest glide you've ever experienced and this is just five bucks when you use the link down below dollarshaveclub.com i update you're getting all of this and then it starts restocking just when you

Need things guys you don't have to worry about shaving anymore it just shows up you shave and you've never looked better see it's that easy dollarshaveclub.com update kid looks great don't apple has included some nice bells and whistles in the small print for the apple watch 36 and the first of these is the s6 chip now obviously it's going to be a faster processor but apple has specified exactly how much faster it is which a lot of the time they don't do they say it's up to twenty percent faster

Than the series five and in my initial testing that was absolutely true because the se has the same processor as the series 5 and it loads you know like 20 faster every time every web page every time i'm using the wi-fi because apple's also adjusted that on the series six this is kind of big for the apple watch for the first time in the watch's history the wi-fi has been touched it's been 2.4 gigahertz historically which is a really really old standard

Like the iphone got 5 gigahertz years ago and now the apple watch series 6 has received 5 gigahertz wi-fi support and it doesn't make a huge difference but when you are relying on a wi-fi connection or you have a weak 2.4 gigahertz connection the 5 gigahertz is there to save the day and make things work quicker i've noticed the wi-fi only functionality on the apple watch is absolutely better on the apple watch series six now something else that apple snuck into the series six and i mean

Like did not say word about on stage or to this day has said anything about is a new chip called the u1 now this might sound vaguely familiar because if you bought an iphone 11 or 11 pro in the last year those phones actually have the u1 chip as well but guess what apple said about it back then on stage again absolutely nothing so what is this u1 chip that apple seems to be putting in most of their future products u1 stands for ultra wideband and what this chip allows is for greater spatial awareness

In fact the only functionality out right now is that on the iphone 11 you can point your phone at somebody with u1 and they'll pop up first on your airdrop list so apple's got the groundwork here but this is going to become very important in the future and there's definitely a reason that they're not saying a lot currently you know when you go to buy an iphone and you specifically buy the bigger version with more storage you know like the 64 gig or the 128 gigabyte version the apple watch actually has internal

Storage as well and the sc and the series 6 have 32 gigs on the inside which is actually the same as the series 5 from last year now we don't know why apple didn't change it i mean 32 gigabytes is kind of a lot for an apple watch some iphones aren't even there yet but there is only one size so if that's not enough for you i guess you just got to go out and buy a second apple watch when you're outside with the apple watch series 6 the screen can get up to two and a half times brighter now

Apple has said this and i was like all right that's pretty cool i'm gonna go ahead and test this but for me it maybe looks a half mark brighter because that's one of the issues with the always-on display is obviously to conserve battery life when your wrist is tilted it's a it's basically half as bright as before but it's supposedly brighter outside i don't know if i've got a glitched version in software or if apple's pulling our leg on this one but if you're out on a hike

Maybe like you saw on the apple ad it should be able to see your watch when you're not looking directly at it easier with the series 6's updated always on display and closing out this list is a feature that is so hidden that you would only notice it if you actually watched your apple watch charge which you know doesn't sound that fun to me and i didn't actually know it took two and a half hours to get your watch from zero to a hundred percent when you're in normal conditions however apple's reduced that by an

Hour for the apple watch series six so now you can get to 80 in just an hour and a hundred percent in just an hour and a half where on any other apple watch it takes an hour and a half to get to 80 and two and a half hours to get to 100 some pretty significant upgrades there apple says it's 20 faster but if you're knocking off an entire hour to get to 100 that's a that's a pretty significant change there which is going to help you with things like sleep tracking because apple will

Let you know before bed hey it's time to charge your watch now you won't have to charge it for as long and you can track your sleep just like you want to so these are my favorite hidden features and tidbits for the apple watch series six let me know what you learned your favorite one of the bunch down below in the comments make sure to check out dollar shave club again who sponsored today's video drop a like if you enjoyed it hit subscribe for more and i'll catch all of you
