Apple Watch refresh tipped for March event

According to the very reliable 9to5Mac, Apple will host an event in March where it will reveal the second-generation model of the Apple Watch, which launched last spring.

Per usual, AAPL will probably remain hush-hush until we get much closer to the release date, but all of these leaked rumors have already begun to generate a buzz.

Among the changes to the Watch, according to the report, may be the addition of Wi-Fi networking, to reduce the wearable’s dependence on a host iPhone. Things like sleep tracking, wireless, and possibly more health technologies but it’s unclear which of these features will be added to the second-generation Apple Watch.

Both devices have been strongly rumoured to be launching early in 2016, and so a March event would suit both launches.

CNBC reports that the upcoming event would probably result in the new Apple Watch models shipping in April. However, I do wonder if it is a bit too soon for an Apple Watch 2 update. This would mark one year since the current Apple Watch went on sale. Currently, the iPhone 6 has a 4.7 inch screen while the iPhone 6s Plus features a 5.5 inch display.

However, when will we officially see the iPhone 6c release?

The new phone will have an A9 chip, and offer functions such as Apple Pay – but will have the same lower-end 8-megapixel camera as the iPhone 5S. And, although it follows the “C” naming convention introduced with the iPhone 5C, Jefferies believes this iPhone 6C will have a metal casing instead of the colorful plastic found on the iPhone 5C.
