Earlier in the month, Apple disabled the Walkie-Talkie app for the Apple Watch, citing eavesdropping concerns. The company has since released watchOS 5.3, which also fixes the bug with the Walkie-Talkie app. And with that, the company has also restored functionality of the app.
The watchOS 5.3 update also makes the ECG support available to owners of the Apple Watch Series 4 in Canada and Singapore. Unfortunately, the feature, alongside the irregular rhythm notifications, has yet to make its way here in Malaysia.
Beyond these features, it doesn’t look like watchOS 5.3 brings anything new to the Apple Watch. But if you were a frequent user of Walkie-Talkie, then maybe this update is a significant enough one for you.
With watchOS 6 on the way, there’s no telling if there will be any more updates to the watchOS 5. The former is already in beta testing, and is scheduled to be released in fall, which begins on 23 September.
