Keith and I recorded a segment before the Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2 were both deprecated a little, with the software dirven removal of the Pulse Oximeter features. This is a feature that we’ll talk more about, from the aspect of how much Keith and I think it’ll impact Apple’s approach in the coming months as they sort this out. The key point of bringing it up now is that Apple did downgrade both watches officially on Thursday, removing the one feature, to put this key hardware back on the shelves. This is an ongoing situation, and may change again by the time this airs.

Following a claim that Apple infringed on patents in creating its blood oxygenation feature, the company has removed the feature from the Ultra 2 and Watch Series 9.
