Apple Watch 2 release date: Second-gen smartwatch reportedly coming in September

Apple is reportedly preparing to the launch the Apple Watch 2 in the month of September when the company will also unveil the next generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus or Pro. Speculations even suggest that Apple may release a number of new products at the September launch event including a brand new MacBook Pro.

Last month at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), the Cupertino giant announced a brand new operating system for the Apple smartwatch, indicating that a new member may be added soon to the company’s smartwatch line-up. The company didn’t announce the upcoming Apple Watch 2 in the WWDC as the event was only meant for software announcements. As Apple’s September launch event is approaching, it is highly anticipated that the company may launch the newest wearable there.

Although Apple hasn’t yet made anything official about the launch event in September, trusted sources suggest that it will take place on September 16. While it is almost certain that the company will launch the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus or Pro at that launch event, it is still unclear about the release of the Apple Watch 2. If Apple skips launching the latest smartwatch in September, the watch will almost definitely not come before the next year, which will almost surely sadden aspiring buyers.

The Apple Watch 2 is presumed to bring in a number of new features and several improvements. The watch will rope in standalone cellular connectivity with support for 4G LTE. This will enable the next generation smartwatch to independently make calls or send messages without the need to be connected to an iPhone.

The wearable is also expected to be slimmer and lighter than the present Apple Watch, while bearing similar appearances. There are rumours going around mentioning that the new smartwatch will sport a micro-LED display instead of the OLED screen of the previous generation.
