Typically speaking, Apple isn't the highest payout when it comes to offering trade-in values. But, they aren't the worst, either. And of course, trade-in values will continue to vary on a semi-regular basis, just as we're seeing recently.
Apple Watch Series 6
Apple has launched a free repair program for an issue where the display on a small number of Apple Watch Series 6 units may go blank permanently. Here's how to determine if your device is affected and whether you're eligible for a free repair.
It's a little late in the day, but Apple is releasing a software update for the Apple Watch anyway. This time around, it's a minor update in the grand scheme of things, aimed at addressing some lingering issues for everyday users.
Up until late yesterday, and probably even early this morning, you could still order an Apple Watch Series 6 if you were so inclined. However, that ship has sailed now that the Apple Watch Series 7 has arrived. At least when it comes to Apple, anyway.
Earlier this week, Apple unveiled the brand new Apple Watch Series 7. There was a lot of speculation surrounding this new smartwatch, and the final result didn't necessarily match up with the expectations built by rumors. Still, the new Apple Watch does offer some important changes from the previous model.
If you've tried out Apple Fitness+, but haven't fallen in love with it despite the Apple Watch integration, how about another option? The online gym Tempo, which utilizes artificial intelligence to build a fitness program for users, has just announced it's one alternative if you're thinking about exploring a third-party option.
Health features are baked right into the Apple Watch. It's one of the standout elements of Apple's smartwatch, and certainly at least one reason why the device is so popular. So it only makes sense that Apple would create new ads on a semi-regular basis to promote those things.
Back in January of last year, it was reported that Masimo, a health care technology company, was suing Apple. According to the company, Apple was stealing trade secrets related to health monitoring features baked into the Apple Watch. The health tech company has been arguing for over a year that Apple has done anything and everything it can to delay the legal proceedings in an effort to earn more Apple Watch sales. And now things are ramping up again.
The electrocardiogram (ECG) feature baked into the Apple Watch is one of the more health-focused elements of the smartwatch. But, before it can actually be used by owners, it has to gain approval by required regulators. For customers in China who have been waiting for this particular feature, it looks like that wait is almost over.
Earlier today, Apple officially unveiled the next major software updates for its platforms at this year's WWDC. It shouldn't surprise anyone that a large range of Apple's devices support updating to the upcoming updates. So you can find a list below of the supported devices that will be updated later this year.
Give it enough time and, eventually, refurbished models of Apple's latest products will find their way to the company's online store. And now, sure enough, both of the company's newest smartwatches have made the leap.
The vision for the Apple Watch has changed quite a bit since its debut all those years ago. No longer this symbol of flamboyancy and extravagance (despite its price tag), the Apple Watch is about being helpful. So it's about time Apple started looking at a more rugged design.
