iOS and watchOS also brings support for Car Key, a new feature that lets you unlock your car with your Apple Watch or iPhone. However, car manufacturers need to implement this on their end for it to be useful.
There is also a new feature in the iOS Health app called Symptoms where you can record how you are feeling.
It's a pity that Australia has still not approved the ECG function of the Watch. Apparently Apple has not applied for approval. Perhaps our requirements are not realistic? Many other countries have approved it:

If you are like me, with all the constant changes, it is easy to forget the functionality available, particularly if you do not use it very often.

One may wonder why they persist in every year with the same predictions for every iPhone. In the last one the share price of Apple dropped for a short time until they reported record sales and profits. Perhaps that is their intention to affect the market and make profits for some?
As stated in a post on MacDailyNews:
Even if a particular data point were factual it would be impossible to accurately interpret the data point as to what it meant for our overall business… There is just an inordinate[ly] long list of things that would make any single data point not a great proxy for what’s going on.

iPhone X was the best-selling smartphone in the world in the December quarter according to Canalys, and it has been our top selling phone every week since it launched. iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus rounded out the top three iPhones in the quarter. In fact, revenue for our newly launched iPhones was the highest of any lineup in our history, driving total Apple revenue above our guidance range… The iPhone X was the most popular and that’s particularly noteworthy given that we didn’t start shipping until early November, and we’re constrained for a while. The team did a great job of getting into supply demand balance there in December. But since the launch of iPhone X, it has been the most popular iPhone every week, every week sales. And that is even through today, actually through January… We feel fantastic, particularly as it pertains to iPhone X. — Apple CEO Tim Cook, February 1, 2018

The problem relates to rendering certain Indian characters which could cause the device to crash.
Apparently some mischievous people have intentionally inserted these characters to cause problems for those unfortunate to have encountered them.
Its always a good idea to keep devices up-to-date, especially relating to security issues.
