There has been much anticipation surrounding the Apple Watch ever since the Cupertino-based company made several changes to the smart accessory. Now that a sequel has been circulating around the rumour mill as of late, the company is expecting to bring something that’s new into the table. And apparently, the Apple Watch 2 will be equipped with new groundbreaking features including cellular data features that will let its users have cellular connectivity even when they’re on the move.
According to new reports, Apple is already hard at work in developing the sequel to the first generation Apple Watch. “People familiar with the matter” claim that the Apple Watch 2 will feature built-in cellular connectivity, which would allow users to perform certain tasks even without them bringing their iPhones or have them tethered to the smart wearable.
Furthermore, the iPhone maker will be equipping the Apple Watch 2 with a much faster processor to make it perform much faster than its predecessor. While we can expect as much with incremental upgrades, it would still come off as a surprise since the device in question is still, after all, simply an accessory.
It’s also important to note that Apple’s purported plan to equip the second generation of Apple Watch would also mean that the company is now playing catch-up as far as smart accessories go. Android Wear devices including LG’s Watch Urbane and Samsung’s line of Gear smartwatches have been enjoying the feature for years now, so the Apple Watch is simply lagging behind in the trend.
While we still don’t have an official release date for the second generation of Apple’s smartwatch, there have been speculations that the company will be setting its Worldwide Developers Conference as the stage to unveil it. However, there are still no official announcements at the moment, so it’s best to just wait until the event finally takes place.
