Apple Watch SE will resemble the Apple Watch 5 series a lot, but it’ll also pack some great features.
Recent reports claim that a budget-friendly Apple Watch SE will arrive alongside the much-awaited Apple Watch 6 this fall. We’ve already seen many leaks and speculations of a cheaper Apple Watch. Still, sources familiar with the tech giant’s fall plans have reported to Bloomberg that a more budget-friendly Apple Watch will be launched soon. Here is what you need to know.
Apple Watch SE Launch Event Details and Expected Specs
The Apple Watch SE (the rumored moniker) is said to arrive alongside Apple Watch 6 this fall. The cheaper Apple Watch will resemble the Apple Watch 5 a lot, but sources suggest some boosted specs.
The Apple Watch SE is expected to arrive in an Aluminium model only, featuring the new S6 and W4 chipsets expected in the Apple Watch 6, and a 16GB storage option and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. And while its fellow, Apple Watch 6, is expected to come with an optical sensor on its side, the Apple Watch SE might pack the Digital Crown, part of the Apple Watch lineup since its beginning.
The Apple Watch 6 is a premium smartwatch developed to go alongside the upcoming iPhone 12 series. The Apple Watch SE, on the other hand, might be targeted as a compliment to the latest iPhone SE 2020. And it could pack some sleek fitness features, as well, such as Garmin or Fitbit.
Apple’s Business Strategy and Other Plans
Apple seems to try new concepts and strategies. The tech giant is set to launch more budget-friendly devices than ever, really soon. It’s also expected to bring a cheaper HomePod with fewer speakers than the previous model but with some of the best features.
Bloomberg also indicated that the company would launch the iPad Air 4 this fall, with the device bringing the edge-to-edge display design of the iPad Pro 2020. Details about the devices’ launch are still unknown. Apple could unveil all of them in one major showcase event.
