The Apple Watch could soon detect abnormal heart rhythms

The Apple Watch could soon detect abnormal heart rhythms

Numerous hints of a new Apple TV supporting 4K and HDR have surfaced over previous weeks, and now we can confirm that the two technologies are indeed part of the Apple TV 4K's specification.

Apple explains that its Apple Watch Series 3 with GPS + Cellular "features a full 4G LTE and UMTS (3G) cellular radio that switches seamlessly to cellular when it is away from iPhone".

Apple didn't announce any iPad news during its press event, but it did quietly raise prices on 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models with at least 256 GB of storage. The Watch will also suggest more personalized workout tips to help users meet fitness goals, and connect to certain types of workout equipment.

Additionally, Apple's Smart Watch 3 has built in Siri, Apple's own Voice Assistant.

It now comes in new Gold color along with old Silver and Space Gray color options.

Although the iPhone X, the iPhone 8, and 8 Plus were definitely the highlights of Apple's September 12 event, the company also announced updated versions of the Apple Watch and Apple TV.

You should get about 10 hours of audio playback with the Series 3, which is nearly twice what you get with the Series 1, which Apple is still selling. "That's potentially more powerful", he said, than the signals that third-party developers can access through Apple Watch.

She added the US hoped both countries could now move toward "improved relations" and "increased cooperation". They are in New York, Seattle and Houston.

NIA continues raids in Kashmir
The NIA on Wednesday conducted raids at 11 locations in Srinagar and 5 in Delhi in connection with the Funding case. It said that raids were conducted at 9 locations in Kashmir and one each in Jammu and Gurugram.

Trump Takes Travel Order back to SCOTUS
What isn't settled is a lower court order protecting refugees who do not have close family members in the United States. The Supreme Court in July largely upheld that ruling, though it put on hold the portion dealing with refugees.

Preorders begin this Friday, and the new Apple TV 4K will be available on September 22, 2017.

In terms of design, the Series 3 does not bring anything new to the table.

To further emphasise Apple's commitment to health, Apple also revealed the Apple Heart study, a partnership with Stanford University that uses data from Apple Watches and notifies users of any potential heart problems.

The Watch Series 3 base model is priced at $329. With just two models of Apple TV now available, apple definitely sits in the latter camp.

Last year's Apple Watch Series 2 added Global Positioning System, which was a major bonus for cyclists.

Having added a new processor, an eSIM and wireless capabilities, you'd think the new Series 3 is bulkier. The only difference is an extra 0.25mm thickness to the rear crystal bump (which is pretty much unnoticeable) and, for the cellular version, a red digital crown.

Jon Cox, an analyst at Kepler Cheuvreux weighed in by saying that "The fact the new watch is untethered from the phone has the potential to be a game changer".
