It is now understood that the firm has discontinued manufacturing display screens for the Apple Watch and will instead concentrate on producing OLED displays. However, a new report sheds light on the Apple Watch Series 3 display panel indicating that a different display technology will be used this time around.

The images on the patent filing revealed that a tiny wire will be connecting the battery on the strap to the back of the device, assumed to be Apple Watch Series 3.

On a separate report by Mac Rumors, the Apple Watch Series 3 will be showcased in the third quarter of 2017 and will enter production during the same period. Such technology could be delivered by Hong-Kong based Biel Crystal Manufactory or Taiwanese-based General Interface Solution.

Mateo Ortega, Strava's Head of Integration explained "research and athlete feedback often drives new Strava features and integrations", adding, "we're excited to add to our growing list of compatible devices, and see this as the first step in providing our athletes an excellent Strava experience on the Apple Watch Series 2". Yet, TPK is said to stop the touch panel production for Apple Watch.

Apple also is bringing SiriKit to the Apple Watch, enabling users to ask Siri to do things like send messages or make a call.

The Apple Watch Series 2 was a modest but welcome improvement over the original Apple wearable, but with stiff competition from Samsung and LG, it's already extremely clear that the next iteration of the Apple Watch will need to be pretty impressive in order to set it apart. Reports also state that the shipments of the new displays will happen in the latter half of this year. Nonetheless, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated previous year that the Apple Watch 3 could come with an LTE chip for cellular connectivity. Normal use saw the battery life extended to 18 hours. This is the very piece of information which we have received about the Apple Watch series 3.
