News about Apple Watch GPS
If you're considering purchasing a new Apple Watch, there's something important to know about the GPS tracking feature. Apple has confirmed that the Apple Watch Series 8, 2nd-gen SE, and Ultra will not sync to your iPhone's GPS signal if your phone is nearby. Instead, all three models will rely on their built-in GPS sensors. However, older models will continue to use your iPhone's GPS when possible. This change is a sign that Apple has more confidence in the battery life of its watches. Although this update was not a secret, it may have gone unnoticed due to more prominent updates like Crash Detection, temperature sensors, and the release of the Ultra model. A well-known tech reviewer, DC Rainmaker, discovered that Apple confirmed this update by adding a line to an Apple Watch support page.
