How Tim Cook Justifies iPhone X's $1000 Price Tag

Reviews of the new cellular-enabled Apple Watch Series 3 just came out and the device was panned by a few prominent outlets.

It's worth noting that some separate reviews of the Apple Watch Series 3 haven't mentioned such connectivity issues. But suggesting it's going to ruin the launch of the LTE Apple Watch, set for this Friday, is just not true. Apple rarely, if ever, makes a public comment relating to product issues prior to launch, especially if it's something they can fix slip-stream in production.

As soon as Apple releases anything, many in the United Kingdom quickly scour the US Apple store site to compare prices.

Other LTE concerns have cropped up ahead of this round of Series 3 reviews, including some questions around worldwide roaming.

In this post, I have shared my research on iPhone X and the credibility of the features it offers. Outside of the potential connectivity problems, new Apple Watch buyers will still have to deal with the extra cost of adding the device to a data plan and the inevitable hit LTE connectivity has on battery life.

Cupertino has acknowledged an issue with connecting to cellular networks via the built-in LTE antenna. The Watch grabs a random mix of songs based on your favourites and most played, and Apple Music subscribers will also get personalised mixes from the cloud. It's got fancy, new heart-monitoring technology. You can use the new Apple Watch without being connected to your cell phone-which I consider a key feature as a runner.

Fitness is and has always been a core feature of the Apple Watch. In fact, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon offer service packages dedicated to Apple Watch Series 3. Apple Watch Series 3 LTE owners should not expect that the watch will try to connect to every single Wi-Fi network.

MacRumors reports that since all of the Apple Watch models feature inductive charging, it's quite logical to surmise that they will all be capable of charging with the use of the AirPower mat.

With no hint of when the fix will be issued, this is something that's surely going to be a concern for anyone who has placed an order and is now waiting for their new Apple Watch to arrive. Analysts say iPhone 8 demand has been muted by Apple's premium iPhone X, which will arrive in stores on November 3 after a week of preorders starting October 27. The price you pay for those brief moments of respite from your iPhone is steep: at least $399 for the hardware, plus $10 a month for access on your cellphone plan for some carriers.
