Source denies rumors about the availability of the modem for cellular communications in smart watches Apple Watch 2
This spring, there were rumors indicating that Apple watch 2 will receive the modem for cellular communications, which will make the device completely independent from the iPhone.
Bloomberg writes that Apple are indeed working in this direction, however, due to the difficulties encountered this idea was abandoned. The main problem is the increase of energy demand and, consequently, the shortening of working hours without recharging. The source adds that the development of technologies and the emergence of more energy-efficient modules cellular Apple will be able to implement its plans, but it certainly will not happen in the Apple Watch 2.
Bloomberg confirmed previous rumors that Apple Watch 2 will receive the GPS module, and the main focus of innovation will involve the development of fitness functions for fans of a healthy lifestyle.
The announcement of the Apple Watch 2 is scheduled for 7 September at the same conference in which course will introduce the iPhone 7.
