There have been earlier reports suggesting, this year's Apple Watch might have an LTE cellular variant. A few days ago, We saw a brief appearance of Apple Watch 3 in the iOS 11 watch app with strong hints about the LTE connectivity. And now yet another leak also suggests the wireless LTE connectivity in upcoming Apple Watch 3.
One Reddit user posted the screenshot of Verizon's Device screen. As you can see, the list contains “Apple Watch Series 3” in it, strongly suggesting the release of LTE variant of Apple Watch Series today or in the near future. The below screen was reached when the user was attempting to add a connected device to Verizon's data plan.
Being said that, we are still getting information that says all these leaks and rumors about the LTE Apple watch 3 might be fake. A Recent tweet by @filipekids shows that the Series 3 name did not appear in the iOS 11 GM code, while the names of the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus did.
Interesting… there’s no “Apple Watch Series 3” name references on iOS 11 GM internal files. pic.twitter.com/F7qCX7LOnx— Filipe Espósito (@filipekids) September 10, 2017
Apart from that, we get suggestions pointing that Verizon might be prepping its backend for the addition of a new Apple Watch. Anyway, we are only a few hours away from the Apple's iPhone 8 launch event, where all these mysteries will be unfolded. Let us look forward to it hoping that there will be an LTE Apple Watch this year.
