Apple makes watchOS 4.2 available to everyone

Rumor: "Apple Watch 2" will be released soon with GPS, barometer, more water resistance and bigger battery

Think of the main criticisms regarding the first generation of Apple Watch. If the rumor is needed, Ma will kill them all at once, starting, of course, with watchOS 3 and its excellent performance advances.

From yesterday to today, the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, from KGI Securities (which has a good track record of rumors), said that Apple plans to launch the second generation of its watch soon and that it would include a GPS, a barometer, more water resistance, a larger battery and a faster processor (manufactured in 16nm, by TSMC) all this in the same current housing, that is, the exterior design would remain the same.

THE AppleInsider, which received the information from Kuo, also mentions something else that is somewhat curious: the first generation model would not yet be filed by Apple, even receiving an upgrade with a faster processor and also greater resistance to water (and probably a lower price) . In other words, the GPS and the barometer would be the great differentials of the “Apple Watch 2”.

For Kuo, a built-in Apple Watch model with 4G (LTE) would be planned for 2017 as long as a significant redesign of the watch could arrive only two years from now. Nothing has been said, for example, about the incorporation of a FaceTime camera for video conferences.

It is possible that the “Apple Watch 2” will be announced with the “iPhone 7” in September.

More “confirmations” about the next iPhone

And speaking of him, the Bloomberg today made a compilation about the device basically "confirming" several of the rumors that we have followed recently.

According to the vehicle, the “iPhone 7” will have a dual camera in its larger model (Plus), a Home button with haptic feedback ( there Force Touch trackpad from current MacBooks), removing the 3.5mm headphone jack (which would give way to a second speaker), removing the antenna lines at its rear, among others.

With regard to the dual camera, the report mentions that this novelty provides higher quality photos (each lens would capture colors differently and the system itself would blend the photos into one, superior) and a superior performance in low light environments.

We'll see 😬
