Apple Watch Series 3 To Use New Touch Panels

The Apple Watch Series 2 was a modest but welcome improvement over the original Apple wearable, but with stiff competition from Samsung and LG, it's already extremely clear that the next iteration of the Apple Watch will need to be pretty impressive in order to set it apart.

The new support in version 5.13.0 makes full use of the built-in Global Positioning System found in the second-generation Apple Watch, meaning users of the app no longer have to be tethered to iOS to track their workouts. This year, the company is looking to stop display production for Apple Watch altogether, and instead focus on manufacturing 3D Touch embedded OLED displays.

Digitimes detailed that Apple is wanting to use another glass-film touch display solution for the up and coming Watch Series 3, rather than the glass on glass series, which has been used up until this point.

The report likewise demonstrated that the bent glass display of the Apple Watch caused significant problems for TPK in the assembling procedure and that the company detailed a sufficient loss because of the difficulties.

The hottest rumor this week is that Apple will ditch the glass display panels found in its current smartwatch models, including the Series 2 devices revealed last fall, in favor of touch sensitive glass-film. Such technology could be delivered by Hong-Kong based Biel Crystal Manufactory or Taiwanese-based General Interface Solution.

If the latter is the case then this is one of the first rumours we've seen about the existence of an Apple Watch 3. This feature may be used in the strap of the Apple smartwatch. Apple says its watches now are designed for 18 hours of battery life, though performance varies based on how you use the watch. The patent, although filed by Apple in 2015, received approval on February 2 this year from the U.S. Patent and Trademark office (USPTO). The new display might help Apple minimize the cost of production.

The Apple Watch Series 3 is also expected to come with the SiriKit, which will ask Siri to do tasks like send messages and make a call. The Apple Watch Series 3 is expected to be priced starting from £369 for the 38mm and £399 for the 42mm, that is $460 and $500, respectively.
