Suuuuuuure they can. While I love my Apple Watch, it can't even tell when I'm standing up.

Why nothing on new phones?

Reportedly due to supply chain issues in sourcing screens. Potentially announced at the end of the month or beginning of October.

Any word on battery life? I want to wear it as a sleep tracker but the battery life doesn’t allow it.

Due for an update on Apple Watch regardless. Wish there was more than just all these health updates. Did like the new band type though.

Is the difference between the Watch Series 6 and SE only this?

No new iPhone?

Also looks like they’ll be ditching the lightning port going forward.

i have the ipad pro 2018 model. in simple terms, would the redesigned ipad air be an upgrade - if an upgrade at all that i should consider?

or would i need to look at the ipad pro 2020 model to stay parallel so to speak?

Apple one will save me $5 a month with what I currently use. Music, iCloud, news, arcade. But will give me tv and fitness which adds up to a total savings of $20 a month.

I wouldn’t get tv and fitness but it’s worth it in the bundle.

this is like hotels saying you must place your card on your bedsheets if you want them changed. or if you would like to skip housekeeping service and we will award you with more points.

hotels do it to reduce labor. apple is doing to this to reduce costs. simple.

i already have apple music for free as i am a verizon customer. tv is also free right now through verizon as well as disney plus (separate i know).

music will continue to be free. tv and disney plus expire after one year.

not sure if it would be worth it to make any changes. i don't watch apple tv.

i'm assuming that previous generation watches won't have this capability as this is a hardware addition, correct?

must buy a new watch if wanting this?

Music for free forever? Or just 6 months. I saw Verizon’s offer for 6 months but that is it.

I’ve watched Apple TV+ twice. Defending Jacob and that WWII movie.

Icloud and music are a must for me. I could do without news and arcade but for its worth it for me at $30 a month.
