It appears that potential consumers are not just going to be salivating over the upcoming iPhone 7 family, because the latest rumor states that Apple Watch 2 could be announced alongside the new smartphone models.
Apple Watch 2 Expected To Be Pricier Than Its Predecessor, But Could Get Rid Of Battery Issues Plaguing The Company’s First Wearable
iPhone 7 and its respective models have a potential announcement date of September 16, and according to Macrumors, Apple’s second wearable could announced at that event as well. The wearable could come running the company’s customized watchOS 3, which covers a variety of updates and brings about brand new features in order to simplify the experience.
Most importantly, Apple could rid of the battery issues of its first wearable with the announcement of Apple Watch 2. This could take place thanks to the incorporation of MicroLEDs, which are going to be far more efficient than the traditional LCD displays that Apple has been using for quite some time now in its mobile devices. While incorporating MicroLED displays inside a wearable is going to be quite expensive, it possesses more than its fair share of advantages, which have been listed below:
- Richer colors
- Faster refresh rates
- Lowered power consumption
- Thinner size
These are the famous attributes of MicroLED displays that will compel Apple to incorporate such a display. Additionally, Apple is most likely going to partner with the likes of Samsung and LG to mass produce the company’s OLED screens in order to enter a better negotiation deal for acquiring an abounding number of OLED displays. Now, it appears that a variant of this particular display technology is going to be ported to the Apple Watch successor.
Unfortunately, Apple’s bid to reduce the thickness of its products might lead to Apple Watch 2 sporting an even thinner form factor, which could force the company to make sacrifices such as placing a smaller battery capacity. However, details are quite vague and whatever updates we come across, we will be glad to share all the necessary information with you guys.
