Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 2 owners will miss out on Apple’s big watchOS 7 upgrade this fall. The new release, which brings sleep tracking and watch face sharing, is compatible with Series 3 devices or later.
The Apple Watch Series 3 is easily the best Apple Watch so far, but you wouldn’t know it from sales. Although Apple continues to lead the smartwatch industry, a massive 9 out of 10 Apple Watches sold are the older Apple Watch Series 1.
That’s markedly different from the smartphone industry, where Apple’s newest iPhone tends to be the world’s most popular (and certainly Apple’s most popular) handset. That’s even true when it’s a device like the iPhone X that are much pricier than older models.
This week’s Apple deals roundup will help you get into shape without breaking the bank. You’ll see deals on the Apple Watch as well as Totu Sports Headphones. Plus, save on the newly released Space Gray Magic Mouse 2!
If you’re experiencing a post-holiday spending hangover, don’t fret! There are still plenty of Apple deals available for anybody on a budget. Score factory-refurbished Apple Watches and a popular productivity app at the best price we’ve seen. You’ll find those deals and more in this week’s best Apple deals.
Apple Watch shipments declined a staggering 71.6 percent this summer, according to IDC, with Apple shifting just 1.1 million units during the third quarter. During the same period last year, the company sold an estimated 3.9 million units.
