Just over a year after the device first made its retail debut, early adopters of the Apple Watch are now reporting issues with the wearable.
Arriving as yet another possible hint that we might just be seeing that new Apple Watch unveiled at WWDC2016, after all … Apple at the end of last week told developers that if they wish to develop new apps for the wrist-top platform, they must be natively built to work with watchOS 2 – by June 1.
The filing unveiled at the U.S Patent and Trademark Office, last week, could signal that the Cupertino company may have a few more motion-driven gestures planned for the wearable.
The company’s March 21 presser not only gave way to a new set of specially-designed Woven Nylon bands for the wearable, (see our first look of those: here), but in addition also saw the firm introduce the much wanted-after Space Black Milanese Loop, as well as updating its Sport Band, Leather Loop, Modern Buckle and Classic Buckle with a range of new colours.
With Apple’s one-year manufacturer warranty likely set to expire at the end of April for all those that jumped on the new wearable on day one – the company is this week slashing the price of what it would cost to carry out an out-of-warranty repair on Apple Watch Sport, to $199.
