Apple is known for designing amazing smartphones, iPads, smartwatches, televisions and what not. After the launch of its iPhone X, the company has made its way back to the rumour mills for its upcoming smartwatch. We recently saw that Apple Watch is leading the global wearables market. According to the latest reports, Apple Watch Series 4 is most likely to launch along with the new iPhones in September.
There have been a lot of rumours regarding the company’s next iPhone, iPad and MacBook. Up until now, the news regarding Apple’s upcoming smartwatch has been sparse. Based on the rumoured specifications about the Apple Watch Series 4, here is what we can expect.
Apple smartwatches are known for their distinguishing design. In fact, the design has been a major inspiration for other smartwatches. However, it is rumoured that the Watch Series 4 will sport a new design. It is claimed to come with a new trendy form factor. Additionally, according to a recent report, KGI Securities has mentioned that the new smartwatch will come with a 15 percent bigger screen compared to its predecessors. A larger display could be an indication that the watch will feature thin bezels.
Like every Apple Watch, we can expect the Apple Watch Series 4 to come with an upgraded Apple S4 processor with better performance and efficiency. Apple Watch Series 3 came with 16GN of internal storage, so we can expect an upgrade on the storage as well. Watch Series 3 came with 768MB of RAM, so it is safe to assume that the company will notch it up to 1GB RAM in the new watch.
Apple Watch Series 4 is most positively going to run on the Watch OS 5. The Watch OS 5 is all set to launch at the WWDC in June this year. The new OS is expected to come with new watch face options and more customization options to allow users to modify the interface according to their preferences.
The new Apple Watch Series 4 is expected to come with a bigger and better battery life compared to the previous models. Moreover, we can also expect the Watch Series 4 to feature the wireless charging option. The wireless charging option was first introduced for Series 3 smartwatch with Apple AirPower. So it’s safe to assume that the new watch might offer wireless charging through Qi standard.
Along with an improved battery, the watch will also come with enhanced health tracking capabilities. According to the rumour mills, Apple is reportedly working on a sensor which will allow continuous electrocardiograph monitoring that will detect all serious heart conditions. Furthermore, the company is also working on a non-invasive method to monitor blood glucose levels. However, chances are that we won’t get to see this health feature in the Watch Series 4, but in a later on model.
