What It's Like to Use Apple's New Cellular Watch

The design-wise, Apple Watch Series 3 doesn't offer much differences, the only difference it its LTE connectivity with which you can make voice calls without your iPhone. Apple has decided not to release the cellular connected model in the Indian market for now. And yes, the Face ID can be used on Apple Pay. It uses your phone's connection while you are nearby, but as soon as you are away with your iPhone, it still works well.

Apple is also adding many local services across the world for everything from live sports (coming later this year) to a local anime streaming service.

It's now unclear when, or if, other networks will begin working with the new Apple Watch although it's likely more will join in the coming months.

Apple is also promising a completely wireless experience when the device is paired with its AirPods wireless earbuds, and with support planned for Apple music, you will be able to leave your phone at home while out and about and still listen to anything you want. And since connectivity with Bluetooth is limited to a few meters, users would always have to carry their phones to make or receive calls, and for other functions.

"Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) requires iPhone 6 or later running iOS 11 or later", explains the detailed product breakdown. The GPS + cellular Apple Watch Series 3 will be $559 and $599 for 38mm and 42mm respectively.

What's interesting is that a long while ago, Apple was rumored to be working on a dedicated Apple TV controller.

After retail stores Apple CEO Tim Cook moved to the new Apple Watch Series 3. Swatch's brands include its namesake US$50 (RM218) plastic watches as well as Tissot, with functions such as altimeters and compasses. Some users may upgrade to the new cellular version. Apple will also sell GPS-only models for $329 (38mm) and $359 (42mm).

Preorders for the new watch begin on September 15, with delivery beginning on September 22. The one without cellular connectivity will be launched here on September 29, starting at ₹29,900.

You might not immediately think of the Apple TV as a business device, but thanks to AirPlay, it's a handy way to deliver presentations and share content from a MacBook, iPad, or iPhone.

The Apple TV app for iPhones and iPads will be available outside of the United States for the first time.
