  • Apple Watch 2 to Feature Cellular Connectivity and a Faster Processor

    The Wall Street Journal is back at it again with the latest rumors of the Apple Watch, which is said that Apple is working on adding cellular network connectivity and a faster processor to the next gen Apple Watch.



    The current Apple Watch relies heavily on the iPhone for any network tasks, which makes it useless when it is not connected to an iPhone. The current generation of the Apple Watch is limited by its processing power, so its not surprising to expect Apple to implement a faster processor in the Apple Watch 2.

    It is unclear when Apple plans to launch the Apple Watch 2. There have been reports that it will be 40 percent thinner than the first gen and may debut at WWDC 2016. Other reports claims that Apple will focus solely on internal improvements of the Apple Watch 2.

      I'd rather much have it faster either not relying on the iPhone at all or at least farther away so I don't get that little red icon at the top.

      Just make it thinner. Even at the expense of better battery life. Just like the iPhone.

      (I'm being facetious.)

      GPS would be great but without cellular its useless as far as I'm concerned.

      AT&T charges $10/mo to add a tablet on a shared data plan. So it's going to cost $120/yr data subscription in addition to the overpriced watch? NO THANKS!!!

      Cell companies are charging 5 dollars a month for watches and you get a separate phone number for the device.

      Why does a watch need a phone number again?

      Agreed. My wifi-only iPad can make/receive phone calls because it's signed into the same iCloud account as my iPhone. And my iPhone doesn't even need to be in the same proximity. I would think the same could work for the Apple Watch.
