The new cellular Apple watch will be launched by the end of this year, according to the latest news by famous Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman (an Apple product editor in Bloomberg). The new Apple watch will come with an inbuilt model of cellular data connection. Hence, your watch will have internet access & you won’t need iPhone or iPad for communicating online.
The current Apple watch series uses the wireless connection of the iPhone for internet surfing, like listening to music, text messaging, using map images & etc.
While the new cellular Apple watch will be equipped with LTE (Long Term Evolution) chips to access the internet. The term LTE, in general, is a wireless standard for 4G network connections.
Anyway, your new Apple watch will be able to connect to the internet & help the users to download new songs, use many apps, download map images & so on, that also without your iPhone in range. You can use the watch alone for browsing & internet surfing.
According to the news, Apple already took their steps to converse with U.S & Europe carriers for offering the cellular LTE Apple watch version for the public. Also, the experts estimated that in early launch of new Apple watch, the LTE supporting carriers will be limited only to the current iPhone carriers. However, many companies like AT&T Inc., Verizon Communications Inc., Sprint Corp. T-Mobile US Inc. & others will sell the device after the launch.
Technical experts around the world are expecting that the launch of this new Apple watch series 3 will bring the i-watch craze among the crowd. Many of Apple users are waiting for the new Apple watch to be available in stores & Apple outlets this year. However, the new Apple watch can still get delayed after 2017, as Apple earlier had postponed this launch from last year. Intel Corp. (the main supplier of LTE modems) & the other company for carriers have not commented on this matter. But, we are still hoping that this new Apple watch will finally be launched by this year fall.
