The New Apple Watch Is Expected to Feature Built-In Cellular Data
Apple is expected to make the forthcoming Apple Watch sequel that much more functional by including cellular data. The first-generation smartwatch currently needs to be near an iPhone in order to accomplish most of its functions, save from reporting your health statistics and running a few applications.
An Apple Watch with its own cellular data would of course mean that you would not always be forced to have your iPhone with you, and you could in turn use your watch like an actual phone/smart device on its own.
The report (coming from Wall Street Journal) of cellular data inclusion has yet to be confirmed by Apple, but the move mandating that all Apple Watch apps must be native could hint at the need for each application to run independently.
This won’t be the only change to the new Apple Watch, however. Customers can also expect a faster processor, among other subtle upgrades.
