It seems the wait for Apple Watch series 3 is finally going to end on Tuesday, September 12. Apple has reportedly sent out media invites for an event that will take place on September 12 at 10 AM Pacific time. This is the first special event that will be held in the Steve Jobs Theater at the company’s new Apple Park Cupertino campus. The invite has a multicolored Apple logo with the line "Let's meet at our place" written on it.

Although the tech giant has not revealed what it intends to launch at the upcoming event, it is expected that the event will be headlined by the launch of the 10th anniversary special iPhone 8. Among other products, Apple is also rumored to unveil the iPhone 7s Plus, iPhone 7s, new Apple TV and the highly anticipated Apple Watch series 3 [VIDEO].

What’s special about the next-gen smartwatch

According to Forbes, the upcoming Apple Watch Series 3 will roll out with an embedded electronic LTE sim, which will make the device more independent of an iPhone. The eSIM will enable smartwatch users to access the internet on the device, send and receive messages, upload fitness data and stream tunes from Apple Music without a companion iPhone. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted that the iPhone maker will roll out the next-gen smartwatch in LTE and non-LTE versions in two size configurations- 38mm and 42mm.

Kuo has also predicted that the series 3 smartwatch will be no different from its predecessor, Apple Watch Series 2 and Series 1 in terms of design. However, this time it is likely that the Cupertino-based tech giant will introduce a micro-LED display in the upcoming smartwatch instead of an OLED display.
