Apple Watch 4 to have more screen, more battery, more sensors

Apple Watch 4 to have more screen, more battery, more sensors

The framework shouldn't be required to stream music without an iPhone, as the Apple Music app is already capable of that, but it might for example push new releases and updated playlists to your wrist, as well as any other notification you'd get in the main Spotify app.

While Apple was busy launching its newest 9.7-inch iPad this week at an event in Chicago, elsewhere, reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities claimed that the tech giant is also planning to launch the Apple Watch Series 4 this year with a refreshed design.

Although Kuo does not say whether the overall chassis of the Apple Watch 4 will grow in proportion or not, it is quite likely that the redesigned models will feature thinner bezels to incorporate a bigger display without making the product larger overall. But for Apple, that's pretty much the case.

As reported by Apple analyst KGI, upcoming Apple Watch series 4 will have 15% more bigger display than the current one and will come with a brand new design. That might be partly true, but another part of Kuo's predictions might dash those hopes. The watch is also rumored to have longer battery life and enhanced health monitoring. However, it does say that Apple will add sensors beyond the usual mishmash of heart rate monitoring. This goes in line with Apple's mission to turn the Apple Watch into a miniature health lab.

Apple will increase Apple Watch sales by 30 percent in 2018, with 22 to 24 million unit sold, Kuo predicts.

The analyst points at a combination of "more trendy form factor" for the upcoming Apple Watch 4.
