Apple Watch 2 News & Update: What We Know So Far?

By Victor Thomson , Jun 11, 2016 05:09 AM EDT

After Apple introduced the Apple Watch last year, now there are plenty of rumors and speculations on the internet claiming that the high-tech giant is preparing to unveil soon a brand new Apple Watch 2.

According to some rumors the Apple Watch 2 could be revealed in the company's next WWDC 2016 event. However, according to Expert Reviews, all of the hints point towards the conclusion that Apple will release the wearable in September 2016 alongside the iPhone 7, or at least announce the two devices together. As usual, Apple has remained secretive on any news of a follow-up device.

Sources speaking to the site 9to5Mac have suggested that Apple will reveal the upcoming Watch 2 in 2016. The site claims that long before the first generation of its Apple Watch model even shipped, Apple already began to develop technologies destined for future Apple Watch models.

In terms of design, at the moment it seems unlikely that Apple will follow LG or Samsung and give the Apple Watch 2 a circular face. A source speaking to GforGames claims there Apple will not introduce any change in screen resolution, shape or size.

Since the first Apple Watch did not come with satisfactory battery life and many users complain that it needs a charge every night, this aspect is one factor that could be improved. Some sources suggest that Apple will reduce the thickness of the Watch's screen in order to make room for a larger battery. However, remains to be seen if an improvement in battery life will come from a bigger battery or from software improvements.

Some rumors claim that the Apple Watch 2 would have a better tethered mode. Apple will work on improving the Wi-Fi, so that the smartwatch can easily be used untethered. Others go one step further and are saying that the Watch 2 will come with 3G or 4G built-in.

Apple's second smartwatch is designed to put controls, notifications and Apple Pay on your wrist. However, it is expected that the upcoming Apple Watch will come with the same OLED display as the older model.
