The new watchOS brings the usual host of bug fixes and performance updates, alongside a few notable additions.

After a month of beta tests, Apple has released watchOS 7.5. While most of the updates are performance-related, a few new features have been added to Apple's flagship smartwatch.

For the first time, watchOS 7.5 brings the ECG feature on the Apple Watch Series 4 or later to Malaysia and Peru. Both countries can now turn on notifications for irregular heart rhythms as well.

Those who have paid for subscription content in the Podcasts app will now be able to access it from their Apple Watch.

The newest update also adds support for Apple Card Family, a new feature that allows spouses and children over 13 to share an Apple Card with the primary cardholder.
