Apple Watch  top rumoured new features
THE APPLE Watch Series 3 is one of the most popular smartwatches out on the market right now, but this year Apple is expected to reveal a successor with beefed up specs, more features, and a refreshed design. 2018 is shaping up as quite the interesting year for wearables all around, with and Google prepping to release their own smart timepieces at the end of the summer or mid-fall. Not to mention that Google is also reportedly working with a number of prominent partners to launch a whole new lineup of smartwatches powered by the revamped Wear OS. The competition is going to be fierce this time around.

The Apple WatchSeries 3

The Apple WatchSeries 3 was announced on September 12 last year, so we are likely looking at a September reveal for the Series 4 as well. As we're moving closer to the launch, more rumours and information are surfacing about Apple's upcoming smartwatch offering an early glimpse at some of the new features that will be incorporated into the device.

For this reason, we decided to sift through all the information available and compile a list of some of the rumoured new features that will be debuting on the upcoming Apple Watch Series

The Apple Watch Series 4

The Apple Watch Series 4 is heavily rumoured to feature a 15 per cent bigger screen than previous models. It's not clear yet whether this means the case will remain the same, with thinner bezels to all around to facilitate for the larger screen or a bigger overall size for the Series 4. All previous generations of the Apple Watch have been available in 38mm and 42mm case sizes, so that's likely not going to change, but considering the rumours about a bigger battery, the Series 4 may be a tad thicker than previous models. That said, previous Apple Watch models have had quite the thick frame around their displays, so if Apple manages to slim it down a bit, we're likely not looking at a device that will be noticeably bigger than its predecessors.

 Apple Watch Series 4 models

According to reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple Watch Series 4 models will have the following screen sizes: 1.57-inches for the 38mm version and 1.78-inches for the 42mm model. For comparison, the current Apple Watch Series 3 is offered in 1.31-inch and 1.54-inch models. These changes are, whoever, not expected to affect the overall size of the device. After all, Apple is a stickler for compact form factors, so a bulky Watch is pretty much out of the question.

Again according to Kuo, Apple's next smartwatch will also have a "more trendy form factor design," which is an interesting tidbit of info that can certainly ignite the imagination, but it's not exactly clear what that means. We
're definitely not expecting Apple to come out with around watch design at this point, but the Series 4 may feature subtle design refinements that will make it stand out from previous models.
