The WatchOS version 4 is still about to come out this fall, so a later reveal is also possible.

Apple cut the strings on its smartwatch.

The master version of iOS 11 was leaked online, and among the secrets revealed by this inadvertent release are a few details on the upcoming Apple Watch Series 3.

Apple has launched the Watch Series 3, which includes cellular connectivity. In the Apple Watch's last upgrade, the second-generation model gained a faster processor, a larger battery and Global Positioning System, as well as becoming waterproof.

Apple didn't just unveil a new Apple Watch today.

But that doesn't mean we're not excited. iPhone independence would open Apple Watch up to a variety of uses and likely give it a giant sales boost (assuming it's not too expensive).

"While it's satisfying to see the new iPhones pack a slew of new features, boasting everything from a depth-sensing camera to the iPhone X's Animoji animated emojis, Apple still faces a challenge in convincing both the uninitiated and long-term fans alike that these new devices are the true innovation the market has long needed".

WatchOS 4 will be available to all existing Apple Watch users starting September 19.

The Music app has been redesigned to offer a new experience.

And, to add to its success there's now an updated wearable called the Apple Watch Series 3. The figure just fell short of its all-time record price at $164.05 on September 1, a day after Apple sent its event invitations to journalists.

Steve Jobs Theater itself is of great interest to Apple enthusiasts. While that watch won't have LTE it will have almost a week of battery life. The marketing around the first iteration of the Watch had focused on the device as a fashion accessory. Samsung pioneered the feature and recently told CNET that half of the watches it sells in the United States have LTE modems.

To go along with this new addition, Apple announced the Apple Heart Study to look at irregular heart rhythms using data from the Apple Watch and in partnership with Stanford medicine.

Series 3 will have a new gold aluminum finish, with silver and space gray, along with a sport loop band. Check back for updates.
