A new report says the succeeding Apple Watch will nevertheless need an iPhone to perform tasks and activities. As per Bloomberg sources, the company’s upcoming Apple Watch will not take account of cellular connectivity. Fair enough, the report reveals the problem remains in the cell chips themselves.
They simply lead to too much battery life consumption. The next Apple Watch is projected to arrive later this year, and will reportedly rope in GPS as well as better health tracking.
These arguments are lined up in the company of earlier estimates formulated by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo earlier in August.
However, the Bloomberg article includes a number of further fine points. Apple’s objectives to untether the Apple Watch from its iPhone and the company strategies to get done with it by the end of 2016.
“The source of the delay is that current cellular chips consume too much battery life, reducing the product’s effectiveness and limiting user appeal, according to three of the people. Apple has begun studying lower-power cellular data chips for future smartwatch generations,” says report.
That window seems to move to 2017. In addition, Apple has been under pressure by wireless carriers to introduce a cellular enabled Apple Watch.
Apple is been in talks with mobile carriers in the US and Europe to support the Apple Watch.
Apple Watch shipments are anticipated to rise by the start of 2018 accompanied by vital changes to form factor, 5G network commercialization, and more.
Apple is correspondingly working on approaching both iPhone and Watch sales beyond. As a result, it will not be shocking to witness Apple Watch 2 and upcoming iPhones launch arriving together.
However, it has not been confirmed by Kuo whether Apple Watch 2 will feature a FaceTime camera and expanded Wi-Fi capabilities following earlier rumors.
As per the data retrieved by IDC, Apple Watch tower above the list of top selling smartwatches worldwide.
In addition, the IDC data also stated that the company was able to ship 1.6 million watches in the second quarter of 2016.
