It’s no surprise Apple’s most likely planning to release the successor to their first wearable next year, with the Watch being released last April and announced in September 2014. In other words, it’s time for an upgrade.
However we’re now getting news about the launch of the Apple Watch 2, it’s still pretty unclear as to what exactly we’ll see in the new Watch. Earlier reports suggest that Apple has considered putting a FaceTime camera in the Watch for quick and convenient videos calls, which could be one of the Watch 2’s shining new features. There are also rumors that Apple is developing a new technology dubbed “tether-less” which will be in their next wearable that will allow the Watch to depend less on the iPhone for initial setup andmaintenance. Battery life enhancements will be welcome in the new Watch as users are reporting their Watch’s battery isn’t lasting as long as it did with watchOS 1. However, with these complaints and reports popping up all over the place, it seems that at this time Apple is planning on making the battery life in the new Watch 2 the same as the current one. 🙁
