Apple is apparently going to launch the new Apple Watch 2 at the same time as the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are expected to go on sale some time in September so we can expect the new Apple Watch to debut at the same time.
The news comes in a report from Digitimes who have apparently received details about the device from Apple’s supply chain.
Orders for the upcoming Apple Watch have been higher-than-expected, said the sources. Judging from the orders, the sources estimated that about two million units of the new Apple Watch could be shipped monthly.
Sales of the Apple Watch have been a disappointment, the sources suggested. Therefore, the recent pull-in of orders for the second generation from Apple is “rather aggressive,” the sources said.
The Apple Watch 2 is rumored to come with a similar design to the existing device and will feature new hardware inside, it will also come with watchOS 3 which was made official at WWDC 2016 this week.
