Based upon the current sleep tracking features, it may give a more detailed analysis of various sleep stages (REM, deep, and so on) as well as customized sleep guidance depending on your data. 

Updated Watch Face Selection

It might get easier to navigate among the wide range of watch faces. Imagine having the option to design unique watch faces by merging features from other ones, or having a selection process that is particular to your interests.

Complication Customization

For a more personalized touch, it might allow in-depth customization of complications – the small info snippets displayed on watch faces. Consider selecting particular data points that you wish to view quickly. 

Smarter Siri Integration

 Siri, your virtual assistant, could become even more helpful on your wrist. Imagine voice controls for music playback, workout routines, or even smart home integration directly from your watch.

Limited Third-Party App Integration

The option to run third-party apps directly on the Apple Watch has long been a desire from users. While fully functioning applications could be beyond possibility. 

It might add certain restricted functionality by adding complexities to already-existing watch faces. 

Consider applications for messaging that show the number of unread messages or fitness apps that provide exercise recaps. 

Walkie-Talkie Range Boost

With the potential for a longer range, the Walkie-Talkie app will enable you to connect with friends and family from afar. 

Enhanced Accessibility Features 

Apple is dedicated to ensuring diversity, and this gadget may include further accessibility features like enhanced tactile feedback or better voice control choices.

We’ll have a clearer picture of it’s actual features after Apple’s WWDC in June. So, mark your calendars and get ready to see what exciting innovations Apple has in store for your Apple Watch!

Stay Tuned!

 With WWDC just around the corner, we can expect a clearer picture of watchOS 11’s features and functionalities soon. Stay tuned for updates after the developer conference!
