Ahead of the launch of the Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE, Apple conceded that the smartwatch was impacted by a bug that would not let the device connect to the cellular network after handing off from a Wi-Fi network.

It’s iPhone (8 and 8 Plus) launch day, which means that Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, has stopped into an Apple retail site to see how things are going. Based on his reaction, he’s pretty pleased.
Apple is a busy company, but it’s a safe bet that, near one of its product’s launch days, things get even more hectic. A new video aims to showcase just what that looks like.
As the world turns, time marches on, and over in New Zealand it’s already Friday, September 22, as this post gets published on Thursday, September 21, on the other side of the globe.
The Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE is designed to give owners a bit of freedom from their smartphone, letting them connect to cellular networks without having to be connected to their iPhone at the same time.
One of Apple’s biggest announcements from this year’s September event was the Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE, which, as the name suggests, packs in a cellular connection.
Last week, Apple unveiled the Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE capability. Soon after the announcement, all major US carriers provided information on the pricing and plans they will be offering for the smartwatch. What, however, most carriers failed to mention is the fact that customers on a prepaid plan will not be able to use Apple Watch 3 over LTE. To be able to enjoy LTE connectivity on Apple Watch Series 3, customers must be on a monthly postpaid plan.
Technically, the Apple Watch Series 3 supports LTE, but it looks like T-Mobile is at least one carrier that has rules in place that won’t make that matter.
Apple showed a few different videos for its products last Tuesday, on the big reveal day for devices like the Apple Watch Series 3, and now it’s got its first big ad for the public.
There is an embedded SIM card in the Apple Watch, and while the Apple Sim in iPhones and iPads is designed to make switching carriers easily, that’s not the case with this particular eSIM.
