Standalone Apple Watch 2, not a 2016 iPhone accessory

We’re really not too sure what Apple has planned during their September keynote, although we do know with almost certainly that we are going to see a new iPhone unveiled, along with the release date for iOS 10. There is hope that Apple could reveal the Apple Watch 2, although they could also wait until October.

There is so much that Apple could do with the Apple Watch second generation, but if we were to see a new one released this year, we suspect that it will be a very small upgrade in terms of changes compared to the current model.

However, one thing keeps being demanded time and again, and that is how we would like to look at the Apple Watch 2nd-gen more of a standalone device rather than an iPhone accessory.

2nd gen Apple Watch

Everyone knows that the current Apple Watch is more of an iPhone accessory, and so future models need to make it more of a standalone device if they have any hope of staying ahead of rivals as the best selling smart watch.

The big question is, will Apple introduce GPS to their watch device, or will they just stick with the current formula, although possibly make it just slightly thinner?

We say slightly thinner because a new rumor has surfaced to suggest that Apple will go with the One Glass Solution. This could either mean a thinner design, or that extra space could be filled with a larger battery to help improve battery life – something that is a huge issue for some owners.
