Apple Watch Series 3 Won’t Support Stand Alone Phone Calls At Launch, Will Support VoIP



Apple is all set to launch the new iPhones next month and we can’t wait to see what the company has in store for all of us. However, along with the new iPhones, the company is also expected to announce the new Apple Watch Series 3 next month, which is again said to bring few new features to the table. Over the past couple of weeks, we have been hearing that the new Apple Watch Series 3 will support stand alone phone calls, however, a new report by an analyst says that it won’t happen anytime soon.

A well-known analyst Ming Chi-Kuo told his clients that he doesn’t expect the new Watch to support stand alone calls immediately upon the launch. According to him, before the company makes this happen, they need to work on improving the data transmission on the watch and since this could take a while, he says that the watch won’t be able to make calls on its own by the end of this year or early next year.

However, he said that the watch will be capable of supporting VoIP services like Facetime and Skype, etc. Having said that, it is worth noting that the watch already supports Facetime Audio and hence, this won’t make that much of a difference. Additionally, he also added that the Apple Watch Series 3 will use embedded eSIM, due to the lack of internal space within the watch’s small form factor. This eSIM will be paired with the same number which the user will be using on his iPhone.

Do make a note that none of this info is official and hence we suggest you take all of this with a pinch of salt. However, Kuo also added that Apple will use Qualcomm’s chipset inside the watch as their chips are lot more power efficient than what Intel offers. And commenting on the form factor, he said that the Apple Watch Series 3 will retain the same design and the only unique aspect of the watch will be the LTE connectivity, however, not all markets will support LTE for the watch, which is quite disappointing.

With all that being said, we would like to know if you would be interested in buying the new Apple Watch or not?
