A prominent new feature is a revamp of its Safari web browser, first launched in 2003.

Another highlight of the new operating system - which will only be available on Apple Watch Series 3 and later - is an automatic handwashing detection feature to ensure the wearer's handwashing time is at least 20 seconds long.

Using Apple Watch's accelerometer to detect micro-movements, the software captures when the wearer is sleeping and how much sleep he or she gets each night.

Apple is finally making sleep tracking available on the Apple Watch, following a trend set by other smartwatch makers such as Fitbit and Garmin.

Apple also claimed the new Safari would be 50 per cent faster than the Google Chrome browser.
