New report says LTE-enabled Apple Watch Series 3 coming this September

There have already been reports suggesting the next Apple Watch – likely to be called Apple Watch Series 3 – will be officially unveiled alongside the iPhone 8 in September. And now, a new report from CNBC is also supporting the September launch time-frame for the wearable.

While we already know that this year’s Apple Watch will be LTE-enabled – meaning the wearable won’t require tethering to an iPhone for features like calls and texts – the report says the device will likely feature an embedded SIM rather than physical SIM card.

Previous info claims Apple has roped in Intel for LTE modem chips, and all of the Big Four US carriers will be offering the wearable, something which this new CNBC report corroborated. Analysts believe an LTE-enabled Apple Watch will be a hot seller.
