Apple is also combining some of the amazing options for setting automatic replies to incoming notifications/messages based on these statuses. But, currently, the auto-reply option works while driving but not in other circumstances.

- Background Sounds
For supporting neurodiversity, Apple is combining a Background Sounds feature that’s composed to reduce distractions to help users stay calm, or stay focus. Bright, dark, or balanced noise sounds can be accessible, including the rain, ocean, or stream sounds. Of course, these sounds can be set to play in the background for masking external or undesired environmental noise. Apple also claims that the sounds blend into or duck under other audio and system sounds.

Built-in optical heart rate sensor, motion sensors, and on-device machine learning will let Apple Watch identify definite differences in tendon activity and muscle movement that will measure a cursor on the screen through hand gestures like a clench or a pinch. AssistiveTouch begins later this year.
