Apple has announced a new smartphone design that it says “goes beyond just what you expect” in a bid to appeal to a wider range of customers, but it may have some surprises for some users.
“The Apple Watch is the next step in an evolving ecosystem, where we’re introducing new ways to connect with our customers to make their lives easier,” Apple chief product officer Phil Schiller said in a statement.
“It is our mission to make Apple the most compelling, easiest-to-use smartwatch on the planet.”
The new Apple Watch comes with the ability to send text messages and share photos.
Apple Watch Series 2, the first iteration of the watch, has a bigger screen and is designed to be used in a more natural way.
But that means the Apple Watch will need to be kept in your pocket, and it won’t work with a smartwatch app such as the Google Fitbit Charge HR.
The Watch’s watch face can also’t be changed or modified, and Apple is only allowing third-party apps to include the Apple logo and a message in the watch face, meaning it can’t change the look of your Apple Watch, or the Apple brand itself.
Apple’s statement also states that the Apple watch faces will be available starting next year, but there’s no word on when they will be sold.
While there is no official announcement for the new Apple Watches, there is one other thing Apple is saying: it’s giving away free iPhones for a week, starting at 8:01 p.m.
ET on Wednesday.
Apple is offering up a chance to win up to one iPhone in each of the following three ways: by emailing [email protected] and including a photograph of yourself with a signed copy of “Designer’s Apprentice” with your name, your age, your phone number, and the number of people in the photo, or by posting the photo on social media with the hashtags #designerapprentice and #Applewatch.
The winners will be chosen in a random drawing at midnight Wednesday.
In a separate release, Apple is also offering the chance to receive a free iPhone SE with the purchase of a new Apple iPhone 6s or 6s Plus.
Apple will also be giving away one iPhone SE for every new iPhone sold, with the winners being announced on Wednesday night.
The Apple Watch series 2 includes an improved design with more subtle bezels, and also includes new features such as a new “Siri” voice command feature and an enhanced music player app.
Apple also announced that it’s adding a new color palette to the Watch, with white for the gold and blue for the white.
The new design also has a redesigned icon that features a black square in the middle of the display, along with a redesigned Siri bar that can be used to make voice commands, send notifications, or send a calendar event.
The redesigned Siri has been redesigned to better communicate with users.
The updated Apple Watch design is designed for a more “natural” user experience.
Apple says that users will notice more subtle differences in the AppleWatch, such as more natural bezel movement, and an overall lighter look.
There are also new complications, including a “New York” complication that allows users to change the display colors on the watch to match a specific day of the week.
The watch will also include new features, including Apple Pay support and Siri recognition.
Apple has also improved Siri recognition, with a new version of the company’s voice-activated assistant now able to recognize and respond to people in multiple languages, including Arabic, English, Hindi, Russian, and Spanish.
The latest version of Apple Pay will be coming to the Apple Watched devices as well.
Apple announced a few new features in its announcement today, including new Apple Pay functionality, which is a feature that lets users pay with their Apple Watch or iPhone, and new AppleCare Protection, which will help to protect the device against accidental damage.
