Apple Inc. doesn’t really comment on upcoming releases. Years of experience, however, has the company’s consumers eagerly awaiting September. Fans anticipate three new iPhones next month. The Apple Watch Series 3 might make a debut, too. Now with cellular connectivity, this year’s wrist gadget promises to be less dependent on the iPhone.
Apple’s smartphone upgrades will arrive in September. The 2017 range includes the iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus, and special edition iPhone. The name of the latter device remains heavily contested, though.
No iPhone 8
Sources vouch for the names, iPhone 8, iPhone Pro, iPhone X, iPhone Special Edition, or just iPhone. A funny thing about Apple leaks. They tend to be spot on with product specs, yet their name accuracy is no guarantee.
That said, “iPhone 8” seems like the most unlikely title. It throws a spanner in the works of the company’s well-recognized naming convention. The widely used title is due for next year’s upgrades. Of the name batch, “iPhone X” sounds most likely. The Roman numeral ties in with the gadget’s significance, not to mention it sounds great, too.
Although, Apple always proves that it understands its own consumers better than anyone else. We will only learn real title of the top-tier iPhone upon its unveiling. All the while, news outlets and trusted analysts cash in on the SEO value of the term “iPhone 8”.
No smartphone dependence for Apple Watch Series 3
The iPhone 8 might have cornered news headlines, but another product is catching up to it. Apple Inc. launches the Apple Watch Series 3 next month.
The last few years have wrist gadgets falling into either one of two categories: fitness bands and glorified fitness bands. In the latter category, the Apple Watch is perhaps the most recognized. The premium gadget maker seeks to break out of that niche. It might do exactly that with its newest smartwatch release.
The makers of Apple Watch will equip the new generation with 4G capabilities. The addition reduces the product’s reliance on a paired phone for internet activities. An embedded SIM will make this possible. Far-fetched rumors insist the gadget will make voice calls, too.
Apple is actually late in the independent Smartwatch race. Chinese gadget maker Huawei put internet connectivity in its Watch 2, so have Samsung and LG with their smartwatches. Neither of them make calls on their own, though. Apple’s release isn’t likely to go there either. Experts predict an eSIM will feature on the Apple Watch Series 3.
New releases this September
There is no usual release date for the this product range. The first generation came out in April 2015 while Series 2 came out alongside the iPhone 7 last September. Considering that April is behind us, and a new WatchOS just waiting to be flaunted by new hardware, the Series 3 should come as predicted next month.
A 4G-enabled smartwatch is likely to go for a much heftier price than the current models. Apple Inc. is likely to push out two models this year, one with online capabilities and one without. However, new watches without 4G could continue with current prices.
Lovers of the company’s smartphone range can also expect the iPhone 8 to show up in September. The two gadget should debut on the 12th. Pre-orders should open shortly thereafter.
