So it doesn't support many providers in the UK
No 02 ??
I'm getting this as soon as we get cellular for it here in Ireland. Which may be sometime...
So ridiculous! Every main carrier in the US but only EE in the UK. Piss take. What happened to O2's love affair with Apple.
Surely Apple are in a position where carrier exclusivity is no longer a business requirement?
If there a monthly charge? this is key to my decision.
I'd like an Apple Store here too!
I would imagine there will be a monthly charge; otherwise, they would have made that a big point in the keynote, to say that it would be included for free.
What will be the monthly charge. That is the question now. I am pre ordering on 15th.
Can someone explain how this will work in reality ? So you can leave your iPhone at home... so you will need to have a second sim with a diff number in your watch ? Which you will have to circulate this new number to all your contacts and let them know that you have your watch on and not your phone ? So people will have to try two numbers to get you as they wont know what you have with you. Or will you have to keep removing your sim from your phone and put it in the watch every time you use your watch.
No Rogers or Fido in Canada...
did you not hear that it's the same number as your phone? don't freak out until you actually hear all the info.
So I've seen some people mention that there was no mention of the 2 series (only the 1 series), but isn't the 3 series w/o the cellular almost the same as 2, which is why the 2 is no longer mentioned?
Barometer and newer cpu on 3.
... and better efficiency (plus: battery & silicon designed for LTE, so without LTE -> even longer battery). Somewhere else I read something about 70-85% faster WLAN, but didn't get that info during the presentation. Siri now talking due to faster CPU, which could be nice, especially together with AirPods.
Interesting: Just read on the Apple site that the LTE-version sports 16GB compared to the 8GB of the WiFi-only. Wonder if they also have different battery capacities.
For all that extra goodies only $60 more seems very nice. Maybe tim cook was feeling sympathetic because of the high extra monthly data fee we will be paying. Will we find out about the data fee before we preorder?
Whats forum members guess on prices for EE? I'd go to £2.50 a month, not a penny more.
As in Captain Oates'
The big 2 banks don't even have Apple Pay yet!
The watch is an extension of the phone. If i am on the phone i wont be using the data on the watch. In that sense i should not have to pay anything extra.
Never happening until Apple European HQ moves out of Cork (or Cork officially declares independence from Dublin..."the peoples' republic" and all that).
Part of their tax "agreement" prevents them having official retail operations in the country.
Hence the existence of a certain fron...err I mean Apple Certified Reseller.
That's absolutely bonkers. Why?
You mean the one that ended in 2008 with the release of the 3G?
Only one of the big three networks is indeed, a pisstake.
To be fair, the OP's question was exactly the same thought I had. If you're not currently on EE for your phone, how does it work with them spoofing a number from a different provider on their cellular network?
I agree, but cant help but ask myself why that wasn't pushed as a major selling point.
Why the increased price? If it's sharing a mobile number, surely it will just share the data usage on your phone plan.
