Apple Watch: Release Date, Features & News
A safe bet is that Apple is going to announce a new iPhone, or maybe three new iPhones, at an event in early September.
As we near the expected September announcement of different products, including a new Apple Watch, rumors regarding the upcoming wearable are starting to pick up steam.
While the lion’s share of attention for new products from Apple is geared towards the oft-rumored iPhone 8, the next model in the Apple Watch family is starting to see its fair share, too.
In September of last year, it was reported that Apple and insurance company Aetna were working on subsidizing the cost of an Apple Watch for insurance customers, and also handing out wearables to the company’s employees.
Along with dropping the fifth beta of iOS 11, tvOS 11, and macOS Sierra, Apple also released the fifth beta of watchOS 3. The latest beta comes just a couple of weeks after the fourth beta was released by the Cupertino company.
Earlier today, a report outlined Apple’s plans to launch an Apple Watch with built-in LTE connectivity.
An LTE-enabled Apple Watch always felt inevitable, but now that a new report has surfaced suggesting it could launch as early as this year, some questions have to be asked.
There are smartwatches out there that offer cellular connectivity on board, so that people don’t necessarily have to keep their phone on them to keep getting notifications.
