Tech giant Apple is continuously upgrading its devices and software, be it iPhones or watches.

The app shows divers a warning if they are descending or ascending too quickly and it will show an estimated time it'd take to get back to the surface. The app also allows divers set the compass heading during a dive. There is also a planner that takes tide, temperature, visibility, and currents into account before going on a dive. Oceanic+ uses the Taptic Engine and the Apple Watch Ultra's big bright display to notify the diver of any crucial info during a diving session.
