Earlier reports hinted at a new Apple Watch 2 release during March this year. However, there seems to be a change in plan by the Cupertino tech giant, and a release of the hardware device is unlikely in March.
According to a report by Matthew Panzarino from TechCrunch, Apple smartwatch fans will have to wait a little longer for the Watch 2.0 to arrive packed with a host of new hardware features. He further said that some new reports emerged recently which indicate that the tech company might roll out a smaller version of the Apple Watch with FaceTime camera feature in it. However, this new version is not Apple’s Watch 2.0 with casing changes and major improvements fans are expecting.
Panzarino, however, speculates that the wearable might be introduced along with new iPhones during fall this year. He says that if the new hardware model is launched in September, it would create a long gap of almost two years time between the initial announcement of the Apple’s new model and its launch date. Manufacturers can utilize this time to add significant and newer features to the upcoming model, reports AppAdvice.
Wearable reports that the Watch 2 is expected to look more beautiful and smarter than its predecessor. Tim Cook, multi-talented industrial designer, feels that Apple should bring refreshing changes to its new Watch with a range of new colors. “The first Watch was all about branding. I’d like to see improvements in the original’s topography too, with it’s sloppy, amateurish kerning,” he said.
As for the battery, the current Apple Watch has an S1 chipset inside that uses a 28nm architecture. Reports suggest that the new Apple Watch 2 model may not witness drastic changes in battery life, but the device will get sufficient battery power to survive for an entire day.
