  • How to watch Apple's 2018 iPhone keynote announcement - Stream, schedule, info

The Apple Watch received its biggest update yet this morning with the announcement of Apple Watch Series 4. Apple shipped 4.7 million watches in that period, beating rivals like Xiaomi Corp. and Fitbit, according to IDC. The user can add contacts on the Watch Face to just touch to start a call. Now let's see what the improvements are.

"The killer app for most who have been holding out has been longer battery life, something that doesn't require daily charging, and possibly a larger screen to make it easier to type on", he said. The Apple Watch is considerably more expensive. The display is 30 percent bigger than the Apple Watch Series 3 and it more brighter and vivid. These not only track your activity more precisely.

It's the first major design overhaul of the Watch since its debut more than three years ago. It also has a new interface redesigned for a larger screen with richer detail. The Breathe app, which now has its own watch face, is a hypnotic unfurling of blue petals. There's one for fire, water and vapor that look really handsome.

Apple introduced solid-state buttons to the Apple Watch platform, which were applied to the Digital Crown and the Side button. It has been re-engineered completely and offers new means of controls.

To be extra clear, the Apple Watch Series 4 is created to work with any existing wristbands. The watch can also detect lower heart rates, as well as catch most cases of irregular rapid heartbeats, or "atrial fibrillation".

Hurricane Florence: 'Big and vicious' storm closes in on Carolinas
It uses average forecast errors of the last five years to predict a storm's path, said Dennis Feltgen of the center. Florence could hit the Carolinas harder than any hurricane since Hazel packed 130 miles per hour winds in 1954.

The user can touch the Digital Crown and receive heart rhythm classification after 30 seconds.

Now that Apple's blessed us with the Watch Series 4 it will reduce the price of its Series 3; as of today, prices for the Series 3 base Global Positioning System start at $279. They detect the electrical impulses of the heartbeat and show you the results. What's more, it also has a built in ECG - the first consumer product available over the counter to do so.

The Apple Watch, which also has 18-hour all-day battery life (including 6 hours of outdoor workout time), will be available for pre-order on September 14 and go on sale September 21. Bluetooth 5.0 is also another upgrade and a much welcome addition to the table.

While the design is fairly similar to previous Apple Watch models, the S4 manages to pack up to 35 percent larger display into a similar form factor thanks to slimmed-down bezels. If you're working out then it slides down to 6 hours.

Apple said the new fall detection feature "Requires a tremendous amount of data and analysis".

Now moving towards the end, there are new finishes available as well: Stainless Steel and Gold Stainless.

The debut of the new Watch line comes just days after Apple said in a letter to the US government that proposed tariffs on goods imported from China could raise the price of Apple Watches and other Apple products. It also comes with a new speaker that's louder to facilitate better phone call sound.

In terms of the Apple Watch 4 release date, we're looking at September 14 for the pre-order, but September 21 if you want to actually get thing on your wrist. The cellular model will be available in 16 markets with 34 carriers.

T-Mobile starts pre-orders for the Series 4 starting on September 14 at 12:01 a.m. PT. Pricing is forthcoming and we will update this when it's available.
