Apple Watch 3: Release Date & Features

Apple is far beyond rumored is ready to unveil a brand new Watch Series model in September, right alongside the iPhone 8. It is said that Apple is preparing to release an upgraded Watch model that will not require an iPhone to offer certain functions like calling and messaging.

Also, it will be available in non-LTE model, rather with the same old design.

Apple Watch Series 3: Details

If there is one analyst that you should probably pay attention is Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI securities. He has proven prolific with predictions in the past. While some other analysts seem more interested in causing headlines than getting the facts right, this is one who caomes up with the goods.

As per the reports from Kuo, Apple will indeed have new Apple Watches ready for us later this year. Both with LTE and non-LTE versions of the wearables. Speaking of choice, Apple will also apparently continue to offer both 38mm and 42mm versions of the Apple Watch.

Along with the size, Kuo also believes that the new Apple Watch will be aesthetically similar to the old models that is already on sale. Rather than there being some sort of radical redesign, it is suggested already by Apple commentator John Gruber.

LTE & Non-LTE Apple Watch Series 3: Information

Speculations on what the Apple Watch will be or look like when it is released later on have been scarce.  It is much being lavished on the iPhone 8 and the tenth anniversary of the first iPhone. It’s understandable that the Apple Watch has fallen wayside, at least external to Apple.

As far as predictions speak, KGI believes that Apple will ship between 17.5 and 18 million Apple Watches in 2017. And with 8-9 million being new models coming later this year. Expect fewer than half to be LTE Watch Series 3, however, at 35-40% of those units. This report makes plenty of sense given the additional cost that would be associated with an LTE model.

A new forecast on the Apple Watch 3 released, everyone rightly took note.
