In September 2019, Apple added another component to the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro without saying a solitary word in front of an audience — and it did it again today with the Apple Watch Series 6.
The component is Apple’s U1 super wideband finder chip, which could let these gadgets locate one another, find different contraptions outfitted with comparative tech, and even safely open your vehicle and your entryway while never hauling an iPhone out of your pocket.
The element flashed by for a short second during the present introduction, covered in this slide we scarcely figured out how to screencap:
What’s more, scrutinizing the official Apple Watch specs correlation page, we can see that it’s just the $399 Series 6 that is getting the U1 chip, not the new Apple Watch SE. It’s not in the Series 5, either, and it was absent from the 2020 iPhone SE declaration also.
