An autonomous Apple Watch in the making

Reportedly the next Apple Watch wont need an iPhone for data.

The Apple Watch is a great piece of engineering, but has its flaws too. For example, leaving your hone phone at home will almost render it useless. Without an iPhone in the vicinity, it can’t receive data. Making it impossible to read messages, listen to music or answer calls.

There are rumors that this is about to change. Bloomberg has reported that Apple has been working on a watch with an on-board LTE chip (thanks Intel). They bare planning on launching it by year’s end.

One might wander why this addition is needed, seeing that majority of people carry their phone with with them 24/7. But imagine being able to leave your phone at home, relaxing at the beach or going to the gym and still be available to answer calls and texts or listen to music! A great perk indeed.
