Apple has discounted its refurbished iPhone and Apple Watch units following yesterday’s big iPhone XS unveiling.
You’ll now pay less for an iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, or older Apple Watch. There are some spectacular deals to be had, like a 38mm Apple Watch Series 1 for a mere $169.
Apple Watch Series 3 may look identical to its predecessors on the outside, but it’s a different beast under the hood, with powerful new hardware, new chips, and LTE connectivity.
A customary teardown by iFixit has also revealed a bigger battery, and one very minor design alteration to make room for new components.
Apple Watch Series 3 is now on sale, with prices starting at $329. If you want LTE connectivity — and you will — you’ll be coughing up at least $399.
That’s not cheap. But is it worth it? And should you even consider last year’s Series 1 model, which remains on sale as a more affordable alternative?
Find out right here in our 2017 Apple Watch comparison, which will help you decide which option is the best for you.
Apple has discontinued Apple Watch Series 2 following the unveiling of its successor earlier this week. Series 1 models are still available, and will be sticking around for the foreseeable future as a more affordable alternative to Series 3.
Developers found no reference to Apple Watch Series 3 in the iOS 11 GM code, but we’re still confident the new wearable will get its grand unveiling tomorrow.
The device has already appeared inside iOS 11 itself, and now it’s even popping up in the official Verizon app.
According to sources in its supply chain, Apple is likely to ship a total of 15 million Apple Watches for the year. That figure could rise even higher in 2018.
Apple Watch Series 3 will be a significant upgrade thanks to LTE connectivity, which will allow you to use apps and receive notifications without being tethered to your iPhone over Bluetooth.
But one reliable analyst warns that the new model will look exactly the same as its predecessors.
Apple Watch Series 3 is under pressure to recapture a larger share of the wearables market after Apple was overtaken by Xiaomi and Fitbit last quarter.
Despite wearables shipments increasing 8 percent year-over-year in the second quarter of 2017, Apple fell to third place, shifting just 2.7 million units.
