The Watch Series 3 with cellular lets you make phone calls straight from your wrist, all without your iPhone. Well, that isn't the case with the new Apple Watch Series 3. Apple has also highlighted the fact that users will be able to stream millions of songs on Apple Music through the cellular Apple Watch Series 3. Apple made enhancements to the heart-rate sensor, including new measurement like resting heart rate and recovery heart rate so you can better gauge your fitness gains.

Apple has made several improvements to the heart rate monitor that will appear in Watch OS 4. Apple Watch can also detect arrhythmia when your heart beats irregularly.

As had been widely expected, Apple confirmed the official release date of iOS 11 at a media event held today at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino. iOS 11 will be released on September 19th. Customers can choose to receive a notification when their heart rate is elevated above a specific threshold while inactive. Series 1 will be dropped to $249 - which sounds like curtains for the Apple Watch 2. Apple also integrated an electronic sim card half the size.

No one's favourite Apple product, Apple TV has struggled to find its way into as many homes as the company would like, but Apple are hoping that making strides into 4K will get them ahead of the game, even though they're actually a few years behind it. The one which come without cellular feature goes for $329, down from $369 for the comparable model now. For example, there's a new Siri watch face which shows you relevant information as your day progresses.

The new Apple TV 4K is priced at $179 while the Indian pricing is Rs 15,900 with 32GB and Rs 17,900 for the 64GB variant.

Lower courts had blocked the ban, saying Trump overstepped his authority and unconstitutionally targeted Muslims. As a matter of law, the Supreme Court can't rule on a case that no longer presents an ongoing issue.

Powering Apple Watch Series 3 is the S3, Apple's third-generation architecture featuring a faster dual-core processor, which allows for quicker app launch times and smoother graphics, and, for the first time, enables Siri to speak using the built-in speaker.

The new smartwatch is powered by a Dual-Core processor offering 70% more performance.

In announcing the new device, Apple's Tim Cook proclaimed that the company is now the world's largest watchmaker, having recently surpassed Rolex, a figure that The Verge said is likely based on revenues. But even though Apple says this means the new Watch is just 0.25mm thicker, or roughly the thickness of two pieces of paper, there does appear to be a noticeable difference.

The cellular version of the Watch will cost $399 and will be initially available in nine countries from 14 carriers. Various leaks have indicated the new phone will feature a sharper display, a so-called OLED screen that will extend from edge to edge of the device, thus eliminating the exterior gap, or "bezel", that now surrounds most phone screens. You can make calls and Apple is fitting it with something called an E-SIM instead of the regular nano SIM. And there's a price cut for the Series 1, which is being kept in the range.
