Apple Watch 2 To Feature Cellular Network Connectivity: WSJ

Will the new Apple Watch 2 work without an iPhone? According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple is working on cell-network connectivity for the Apple Watch 2.

The Wall Street Journal has reported that Apple is working on the addition of cellular network connectivity and a speedier processor to be included in the new Apple Watch 2, looking at its first version’s sales.

With this addition, users would get additional benefits as they would no longer be dependent on their phone for messaging and calling. However with the employment of such a feature, a connection package also seems to be the need for making the feature advantageous.

Some users might find it great that GPS using, phone call making as well as streaming could all be done without their iPhone. These hints have shown up because many users have been demanding an iPhone independent Apple Watch since its first release. The step was also seen when Apple announced all native apps to be submitted by 1st June 2016 to the App Store.

Hence the updates for the Watch given as the Watch 2 shall have quicker access to apps with swift usage rather than Bluetooth back and forth connection requests.

The faster processor feature is obviously now among the growing needs of every new comer hence it is already expected of the company to give an overall faster user interface experience just not a normal faster experience.

While comparing the sales of the Apple iPhone and the Apple Watch from the same durations, Wall Street reported that the number is twice than that of the phone’s first year sale.

On the other hand, there is also some confusion as some rumors say that the upgrade shall also include a 40 pc thinner watch in June. While more researched news from KGI Securities says that the watch shall come along with the iPhone 7 and that too with only specification upgrades.
