Apple’s big fall presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, September 7th. Meanwhile, more and more new information about the expected new products appears on the network.
Details about smart watches Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Pro will not surprise anyone. However, according to the New York Times fresh information from people familiar with the matter, Apple will introduce another new smartwatch model.
According to the New York Times, it will be a very inexpensive model that will be “cheaper than the Apple Watch SE.” It is noted that Apple will release them as part of “more aggressive competition for young smartwatch buyers.” This was reported immediately by two sources of the New York Times. The publication specifies:
The model will be introduced along with other new versions of the watch, including high-end wearables for serious athletes that will compete with fitness trackers created by its rival Garmin.
The Apple Watch SE currently retails for a starting price of $279 for the 40mm version and $309 for the 44mm version. Variants with cellular connectivity required to use the Family Setup feature will cost $329 and $359, respectively. The New York Times also indicates that Apple will release an Apple Watch with Family Sharing support (Family Sharing) for less than $279.
As 9to5Mac points out, one of the key factors here is that Apple is also planning to discontinue the Apple Watch Series 3, which retails for $199.
Apple Watch may have Touch ID – it is described by a new patent
In 2017, a patent appeared on the web that described the Touch ID system in the Apple Watch. He never got to the level of finished technology, but it seems that the company has not forgotten about it. According to media reports, a new patent on the same topic was recently discovered on the net. He describes Touch ID as a kind of “new touch device.”
Judging by the published images, the fingerprint scanner can be placed in the side button. Judging by the same patent, the recognition system will be much smaller than in the iPhone and iPad, which will fit the fingerprint scanner and other data into the watch.
Note that the presence of a patent does not always mean the emergence of a finished technology. A commercial solution to the 2017 patent application has not emerged. However, it is possible that biometric identification will still appear in the Apple Watch.
