So typical of him to release new hardware with much-desired new features?
Lol true. They couldn’t even give the iPhone 3G wallpapers with iOS 4, no way Steve would’ve been able to magically give the Series 4 Apple Watch an always-on display.So you think TheGreatSteve could implement a hardware-dependent feature on a device without the required hardware?
Talk about your RealityDistortionFields...
Why not? I don’t see the appeal of having the digital display of an electronic watch constantly display time when not in use and I actually prefer to have the display off.Lol true. They couldn’t even give the iPhone 3G wallpapers with iOS 4, no way Steve would’ve been able to magically give the Series 4 Apple Watch an always-on display.
Just to play devil’s advocate though, I don’t think Steve would’ve released an Apple Watch without an always-on display in the first place.
Despite all the snark, without the new driver chip, an always-on screen on the S4 would kill the battery in no time flat.
On the series 4 I think there is an option for the screen to stay on for 70seconds after you tap it, not ideal but better than nothing.Not to play the devil's advocate here, but I would personally appreciate an always-on display option for my Apple Watch 4. Let me explain. I plan to use it only for the gym (I ordered a SS AW5 for daily use which should arrive next week). Since I would only use it for an hour a day, I wouldn't mind it almost draining my battery at a time (I would recharge every time I went to the gym). That way it would be easier for me to see my workout progress and the music playing without wrist swings. I understand that this may not make sense/be desirable to most people, but it would nonetheless be helpful for me in that particular use.
