The rumor: Apple’s most outdated watch will be going away soon, according to Ming-Chi Kuo (72.5% accurate).
- Apple may discontinue the Series 3 Watch in the third quarter of 2022 due to its slow chip inside…
- “The computing power can’t meet the requirements of the new watchOS,” Kuo says
Sam’s take: This is now the second time we’ve heard that Apple is looking to nix the Apple Watch Series 3, and I hope with all my heart that it’s true. Due to the low $199 starting price, a lot of folks are rightfully drawn to this product…only to realize that using it isn’t a good experience in 2022. The processor is severely outdated, updates are a nightmare, and its age has shown for years now. Good riddance.
