It’s been three years since the Apple Watch arrived on the market and during this period it became the most popular smartwatch. However, this was to be expected since Apple has a reputation for creating high-end devices that instantly become bestsellers, especially since they sport the famous Apple brand. Nonetheless, the Apple Watch has kept the same design during these past three years and fans are expecting to see a change in the upcoming Apple Watch Series 4.
Apple Unveils WatchOS 5
One of the highlights during Apple’s recent WWDC developer conference was WatchOS 5. The new smartwatch operating system is packed with a plethora of new features such as a walkie-talkie mode, support for podcasts and fitness improvements.
Apple Watch Series 4 Release Date
On the downside of things, Apple didn’t mention anything about Apple Watch Series 4’s launch date, but this doesn’t mean we don’t have an idea of when that will happen. Apple usually launches its new iPhone lineup somewhere during the week after Labor Day and a new Apple Watch comes out at the same time. Therefore, we think it’s safe to assume that the highly anticipated Apple Watch Series 4 will launch in September.
Expensive Price Tag
Since this is Apple we are talking about, no one should be surprised to find out that Apple Watch Series 4 will feature an expensive price tag. Apple equips all its devices with high-end hardware specs and it charges a premium for it. The current Apple Watch Series 3 price starts at $329 and we believe that Apple Watch Series 4 will cost a little bit more than that.
Improved Battery Life
Apple is expected to equip the new smartwatch with a special display technology known as MicroLED displays. The reason why Apple is doing this is to increase how long the battery can last. In addition, WatchOS 5 will feature software optimizations which help with the battery last longer.
