Apple Watch 2: Major March update now unlikely

The Apple Watch 2 will not be launched at a major event in March after all, reports suggest. That flies in the face of weeks of rumours that Apple is set to reveal the first update to its smartwatch in a few months' time.

Sources speaking with TechCrunch claimed that the most we can hope for in March is a slightly tweaked version of the existing Apple Watch, with the only addition likely to be a FaceTime camera.

Whispers that Apple plans to add a camera to its techno timepiece have cropped up regularly in recent weeks.

However, there’s no word on when this will be. Apple is expected to hold an event in March, but it’s thought this could now be focused on the iPhone 6c and updated iPad Air.

So it seems that a major update to the Apple Watch may not happen until much later in the year. That means Apple could unveil the device alongside the iPhone 7, which is expected to be revealed in autumn.

A moderately improved Apple Watch is unlikely to cause much of a stir.

But having regularly upgraded specs and features on its iPad range only to see sales dwindle, it appears Apple is being more cautious about when it chooses to update its wearable.
