苹果(aapl . o:行情)has hit roadblocks in making major changes that would connect its Watch to cellular networks and make it less dependent on the iPhone, according to people with knowledge of the matter. The company still plans to announce new watch models this fall boasting improvements to health tracking.
The updated versions will also be able to integrate GPS-based location tracking, according to the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t publicAn Apple spokeswoman declined to comment.
唯一的例外我意识到——一次苹果最后一分钟改变了设备——2009年third-gen iPod Touch据传包含一个摄像头,它没有运来但证明最后时刻改变的是极不寻常的,拆解的iPod清楚地揭示了一个套接字相机就会在哪里。
Ever since its inception, network carriers have been urging Apple to release a version of the watch that can connect to data networks independent of the iPhone, and the Cupertino, California-based company had been working to untether it from the handset, one of the people saidAs it is now the watch must be synced with an iPhone to download most types of content and consistently track location.
Since when does Apple take advice from network carriers? And of course Apple is working to add cellular networking to Apple Watch手头的问题只是他们是否真的希望增加今年的新车型我强烈怀疑。
During the discussions, Apple executives expressed concern that the cellular models may not be ready for release this year and that the feature may be pushed back to a later generation, according to the peopleApple warned that, even on an aggressive schedule, the earliest possible shipment time-frame for cellular models would have been this December, one of the people said.
如果Apple想在今年推出第二代Apple Watch，那么他们必须能够在10月开始发货，也许最迟在11月的第一周发货。任何晚于此的事都为时已晚为什么彭博没有时间表当any of these decisions were made? That, to me, would settle the matter on whether this is a disappointment or was the plan all along.
The whole thing feels to me like Bloomberg wanted to have a story on the new Apple Watch, but the one and only fact they had is the addition of GPS, which has been widely rumored all year就是这样因为他们不能让一个故事的新苹果看会有什么,他们将一个故事关于一个特性几乎肯定不会有。
