Apple Watch 3 set to come with 4G and all–new design

Apple’s next smartwatch will be able to connect to 4G networks, meaning it won’t need to be tethered to an iPhone in order to perform key tasks.

‘People familiar with the matter’ made the claims to Bloomberg, adding that the Apple Watch Series 3 will be revealed later this year. Intel is said to be supplying 4G modems for the updated smartwatch.

While last year’s Apple Watch Series 2 came with GPS smarts in order to improve tracking while the device was taken away from a paired iPhone, the California company’s wearable still requires the aforementioned smartphone in order to complete most tasks.

Adding 4G means the Apple Watch Series 3 should be able to download music and apps and possibly even make calls as a standalone device.

In a separate development, renowned Apple watcher John Gruber has claimed that the Apple Watch Series 3 will feature an ‘all–new form factor’. The Apple Watch has kept the same design since its initial introduction in September 2014.

While Apple has not commented, there’s every chance it could unveil the Apple Watch Series 3 alongside the iPhone 8 at a special event in September.
