Apple Watch 3 will feature LTE but not a brand new design

Apple's third generation watch to be out soon

Apple's third generation watch to be out soon

That's all we know for now, but stay tuned as Apple is expected to host its autumn product reveal in early-September, where the aforementioned iPhone 8 is widely tipped to be the star of the show.

Apple will ship 4.5 million watches in the fourth quarter for a total of 15 million this year, tech news site DigiTimes reported on Friday, citing unidentified suppliers. However, the report predicts that growth in the category will continue, with a almost 60 percent ownership increase expected from Q2 2017 through Q4 2018, driven in large part by anticipated new product introductions from market leaders.

As for rumors that the Apple Watch Series 3 might introduce a new form factor, that originally emanated from John Gruber who said he heard via an "unconfirmed little birdie" that a new Apple Watch design was in the works.

This makes Apple one of the only few companies willing to take a risk in the uncertain smartwatch market. What's new is that Foxconn's subsidiary Shunsin Technology has entered the Apple Watch supply chain providing system in packaging (SiP) services for the Apple Watch.

As well as the iPhone 10 Year Anniversary Edition and Apple Watch 3, we're expecting to see a more modestly updated handset in the iPhone 7S and a 4K Apple TV (5th-gen). They'll come with a so-called eSIM to save space, and will work across major USA carriers.

What's going to be new about the Apple Watch Series 3?
