Apple launched the Apple Watch Series 3 in September 2017. Since then, year after year, this model has become the entry range to the Apple Watch and has been updated to every version of watchOS that Apple has released. However, his days are numbered.
According to Mark Gurman, Apple will abandon the Series 3 with the launch of the Apple Watch Series 8. That is, the Series 3 will not be updated to watchOS 9, the next version of Apple’s operating system for its smart watch.
With watchOS 7, install each new update it was an odyssey, since it always asked us to free up space to be able to download and install the application. With watchOS 8, things obviously haven’t gotten any better and it’s a hassle to install each new update.
It is increasingly difficult to recommend this model. However, if you do not intend to install any third-party apps, with the included sports activity tracking apps It is more than enough.
New Apple Watch models for 2022
Gurman also claims that by 2022, Apple will expand the Apple Watch lineup with the Series 8, an Apple Watch SE, and a new Apple Watch. Apple Watch oriented to extreme sports.
At the moment, everything seems to indicate that won’t include any new major health sensors. We have been talking for several years about the possibility that Apple includes a body temperature sensor, a sensor that, the same comes with this generation that we have to wait for the next.
Regarding the design. In the days leading up to the launch of the Series 7, Apple trolled the media and circulated a render of how it was going to be, a square design that was a radical change compared to the previous model.
However, the Cupertino-based company only enlarged the screen size to reduce the borders and enlarge the screen.
