Recent reports reveal that the Apple Watch Series 3 will be made available by the second half of the year. This release date leak came from supply chain sources that are left unnamed. The Apple Watch 3 features, however, aren't revealed in the recently leaked data. Nevertheless, past reports have already dropped a few hints as to what Apple will bring to the table with its upcoming wearable.
According to Mac Rumors, there is a really good chance that the Apple Watch 3 will be launched in September. Since the Watch's predecessor became official in the said month last year, it is highly possible that Apple will stick to that launch date. If this prediction is true, the Apple Watch Series 3 will share the limelight with the upcoming 2017 iPhones that are expected to be showcased September of this year.
As far as features are concerned, the Apple Watch 3, by default, is expected to have an improved performance compared to its predecessor. The wearable's battery life will also be increased, GSM Arena reported. Nevertheless, one of the most awaited additions in Apple's smartwatch might now be included in the Apple Watch Series 3 - the LTE connectivity. Several analysts have already predicted that Apple might already go cellular with its upcoming wearable.
Cellular connectivity in the Apple Watch 3 will allow users to be able to make phone calls and stream music without their iPhones. Nevertheless, a separate data plan might be necessary to fully enjoy the service.
As for the looks, however, rumors say that the company may still stick to the current design, with only slight changes taking place. Nevertheless, the company might shift to glass-film touchscreen from the predecessor's touch on lens solution. Additional details from the rumors have also revealed that the Apple Watch 2 will still remain available even when the Apple Watch 3 becomes official. Quanta is the one responsible for manufacturing the Apple Watches 2 and 3. However, around the time when the third-gen Apple Watch comes out, the Watch 2 production will be given to Compal.
