Apple Watch Series 3 unveiled with cellular service and dual-core processor

At Apple's event in its new headquarters in Cupertino, Jeff Williams, Apple's senior vice president of operations announced new features for the latest smartwatch, which has cellular built in. The new connectivity should also allow the Series 3 to do things like allow wearers to chuck the phone and navigate via Apple Maps, listen to music on one's wireless headphones, or even order takeaway. Cook plays a video featuring a number of Apple watch users telling their stories of how the Apple Watch has helped them.

This is potentially the biggest and most revealing leak ever, with an Apple insider reportedly making the code available to two news websites.

The watch has two versions, which will cost 329 and 399 US dollars.

During the launch, Tim Cook, Apple's Chief Executive Officer said: "Apple Watch is the number 1 smartwatch in the world with 50 percent growth in customers year on year".

The watch is expected to ship September 22, according to Williams.

Apple Music support is coming to Apple Watch Series 3, too, with the full range of 40 million songs available for listening on the device. The publication said Apple is meant to be keeping Quanta as its main supplier for the next installment of the watch and this means the company should begin the second half of 2017 strongly. In the Apple Watch's last upgrade, the second-generation model gained a faster processor, a larger battery and Global Positioning System, as well as becoming waterproof. The original Apple Watch started at £299 and there is a possibility the Watch will struggle to sell if Apple price it any higher. "On the 10-year anniversary of the iPhone, Apple was always going to have to move mountains with the latest versions of its iconic handset", he said. With the recent one, you can see your heart rate on your wrist.
