This time Apple is rumored to be introducing an application called “Mind” at the WWDC event. This information was obtained after developers discovered a leak of a new feature in watchOS 8. There were previously rumors that the Apple Watch would get a “health tracking” upgrade in watchOS 8. But didn’t elaborate. Apple held a keynote speech at WWDC 2021 on Monday. It is estimated that Apple will introduce various new features that will be brought in iOS 15, iPadOS 15, tvOS 15, watchOS 8, and macOS 12.
Apple is known to be able to keep secret what will be launched. This time, however, the Cupertino-based tech company may have accidentally let some secrets leak out early.
The app called “Mind” was discovered by Khaos Tian and posted to his Twitter. The image shows an App Store profile that will list a few items that might hint at what’s coming to the Apple Watch soon. The key finding on the list is “com.apple.Mind”. This is a new addition as no app from Apple bears the code.
It makes sense that Mind could be a new app built into watchOS 8. It could provide some mental health-related features. Many other items are listed in the image, including “NanoTips” and “NanoContacts”. This could show the Apple Watch variant of an existing iPhone app.
This may be part of an ongoing push to make the Apple Watch less dependent on handling and managing app data from iPhone and iOS. The WWDC 2021 event is planned to be held from June 7 to June 11, 2021.
