Apple to Unveil LTE Apple Watch Alongside New iPhone 8 in September [Report]

Apple is planning to unveil its new LTE Apple Watch alongside new iPhones in September, according to CNBC.

Apple is gearing up to release a new Apple Watch which will not require tethering to an iPhone for key functions like calls, making it a standalone device, a source with knowledge of the matter told CNBC. The U.S. tech giant will launch the next generation Apple Watch in September, the source said, when it is also expected to take the wraps off three new iPhone models.

An Apple Watch with cellular connectivity will allow uses to text message, make calls, and stream music without needing to be tethered to an iPhone. It's likely that an embedded SIM would be used rather than a removable SIM card.

"It is a win win for Apple as it will drive up the average selling price of the device because they will be more expensive," Neil Shah, research director at Counterpoint Research, told CNBC. "It will cater to the niche market of health and fitness users who don't want to carry their iPhone when they go for a run. It will also be good for enterprise use cases."

The new device is expected to run watchOS 4, a sixth beta of which was just seeded to developers yesterday. watchOS 4 features a proactive Siri watch face that displays the information users need most throughout the day, personalized Activity coaching and an entirely new music experience.

Bloomberg recently reported that Intel would supply modems for the new device which is backed up by CNBC's source. AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile US plan to sell the new Apple Watch. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS for updates.
