Apple Watch 2 to Support Cellular Connectivity - Rumor
According to the latest report from The Wall Street Journal, the next-generation Apple Watch may get the support of cellular network and a faster processor. These improvements should make the wearable device more independent and allow people to use the smartwatch without their phone close at hand.
The addition of the cellular network connectivity will make basic features, for example, answering emails and making calls, available right on the Apple Watch, without the need to connect the device to the phone.
Although such a feature [cellular connectivity] would undoubtedly require an additional data plan, on top of one they might already have for both the iPhone and iPad, benefits like using GPS, making phone calls, and streaming Apple Music without an iPhone nearby could outweigh the cons for some users.
Rumors suggest that the Apple Watch 2 will be thinner than the current model and get a number of new features. The release of the updated smartwatch may take place this September alongside the debut of the iPhone 7.
