If you thought that all the “love” in the world of Apple Rumors focused on the next MacBook Pro and iPhone, you are wrong. According to Mark Gurman writing for Bloomberg, Apple is trying to to the new generation of your smart watch is much more independent. They may apparently and according to their sources, the ambitions of Apple not met all this year.
More health and independence of the iPhone
Apple plans for the next generation of the Apple Watch involve at least two new hardware components: a GPS and a cellular radio. On numerous occasions, it has been argued that Apple Watch should have debuted with GPS. In this way, the athletes more enthusiasts or professionals could use it to track and measure more accurately his exercises.
Despite not having GPS chip, Apple is able to measure the distances and location with relative accuracy. This is possible thanks to the calibration of the device as well as via WiFi triangulation. But that is not enough and Apple wanted to push this functionality in the next generation of the Apple Watch.
The objective of the Cupertino company is reduce dependence on your smart iPhone clock. Make it more autonomous of the product the company star. GPS would be an interesting to your arsenal of hardware addition, although it would not be at the height of a cellular radio.
According to Gurman, Apple not has been able to integrate this component within the Apple Watch 2 without affecting the autonomy of the device too. By my experience, the current generation holds perfectly day and half long without charge. Two if you turn off at night. For this reason, the battery is not a problem in the first generation of Apple clock.
However, a cellular radio requires more attention in terms of battery. Have it could break the chains that bind it to the iPhone, making it completely independent to work small as receiving notifications and messages as well as make FaceTime Audio calls.
