Apple Watch 2 Will Be 40% Thinner

Brian White, who is the Apple tech analyst at the Wall Street firm Drexel Hamilton has revealed today a set of his studies that he has made during his current Chinese tour. These reports are regarding the news and the expectations for the new Apple Watch as well as the new iPhone 7.

According to Brian as well as the KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, it shall be only the 5.5 inch iPhone 7 Plus that shall be having the dual camera system. However, White also says that the production for the iPhone 7 shall soon begin in July 2016 and this iPhone model shall bring back the glory to the consumed and exhausted smart-phone market back to Apple.

The iPhone market had for the first time experienced such a decline in sales the previous year with its second quarter earnings but Apple itself says that apart from the rough last year, this time second quarter earnings are expected to stay stable.

Apple has never been wrong in its predictions even when it comes to predicting that it would see an exhausted market last year. Though Apple has also announced that with the iPhone 7 parts productions beginning from July, the growth is supposed come back to them soon.

On the other hand, the Apple Watch 2 shall be out in just two to three months and this watch shall be about 20 to 40 pc thinner than its previous model. It is said that this launch could take place at the company’s World Wide Developers Conference since it is also going to be held two to three months later i.e. from 13th to 17th July 2016.

The Apple Watch could also be unveiled at the ‘let us hoop you in’ event that takes place every year in March just like it took place this year and gave away the iPhone SE and iPad Pro. There have also been many other reports that say that this Watch would be out by September 2016 since the previous one was also announced in September 2014 and given out by April next year.

There are however some other reports as well that expect the Apple Watch 2 to be released in June this year. This was given out by a Chinese report that stated the confirmation because Taiwan based Quanta Computers had been making the same to be launched in the second quarter while delivery shall begin by the third quarter.

It is also said that Quanta will be giving out trials of the Apple Watch 2 by the end of that month too. Similarly, Cowen and Company analyst Timothy Arcuri says that the launch shall take place somewhere in between mid to late 2016 with a thinner outlook.

There are also reports from June 2015 that announce features such as FaceTime video camera and more Wi-Fi options to be available in the new bands.

Whatever the case, whether the launch is in September or June, one can clearly make out that the longer time it takes to launch, the better it will be for the consumed Apple market. This seems the reason that Apple could be thinking of too since a year and a half’s time seems very appropriate.
