Apple launched the Apple Watch Series 3 in September 2017. Since then, year after year, this model has become the entry-level Apple Watch and has been updated for every version of watchOS released by Apple. However, his days are numbered.
According to Marc Gurman, Apple will abandon the Series 3 with the launch of the Apple Watch Series 8. That is, the Series 3 will not update to watchOS 9, the next version of Apple’s operating system for its smartwatch.
With watchOS 7, install every new update it was an odyssey, because it always asked us to free up space to be able to download and install the application. With watchOS 8, things obviously haven’t improved and it’s tedious to install each new update.
It is increasingly difficult to recommend this model. However, if you don’t intend to install any third-party apps, with the included sports activity tracking apps It’s more than enough.
New Apple Watch models for 2022
Gurman also claims that by 2022, Apple will expand the Apple Watch lineup with Series 8, an Apple Watch SE, and a new Apple Watch. Apple Watch geared towards extreme sports.
So far, everything seems to indicate that will not include any major new health sensors. We have been talking for several years about the possibility of Apple including a body temperature sensor, a sensor that likewise comes with this generation that we have to wait for the next one.
Regarding the design. In the days leading up to the launch of Series 7, Apple trolled the media and circulated a rendering of what it was going to be, a square design that was a stark departure from the previous model.
However, the Cupertino-based company does not maximize screen size to reduce the borders and enlarge the screen.
