Will the new Apple Watch finally make smartwatches a mainstream thing?

Today sources within the upstream supply chain in Taiwan are predicting that Apple's overall smartwatch shipments are expected to rise to 4.5 million units in the fourth quarter and hit 15 million for the whole year 2017, according to sources from the upstream supply chain. According to a new report from the Economic Daily News, the next-gen Apple Watch and is already in its final testing phase.

This tallies with a string of recent reports that have suggested that the Apple Watch Series 3 is on its way.

One of the main reasons why other vendors have been seeing decreased shipments is due to omnipresent complaints in wearables ranging from high prices, weak battery life, and others. This would take total shipments for the year to 15m units.

Xi calls for calm after Trump says United States is 'locked and loaded'
Mr Xi's comments came as Pyongyang accused the USA leader of driving the Korean peninsula to the brink of nuclear war. North Korea has a strong military, the weather is unpredictable, and the terrain is rugged.

Instead, Apple's next-generation smartwatch will use LTE for data connectivity independent of the iPhone. A software update will eventually bridge this communication gap, but the reason why this gap is being made in the first place is that Apple reportedly wants negotiations with phone carriers to be carried out in an amenable fashion.

The third-generation Apple Watch will be manufactured by Quanta Computer and Compal Electronics may join the supply chain in 2018, the sources said.

The good news is that, there is word on the street that all major United States carriers will support the LTE Apple Watch, which in all likelihood will use Qualcomm modems over Intel's despite the ongoing legal tussle between Apple and Qualcomm. The comments are waiting for your input.
