Apple Regains Top Spot In Wearable Band Market

The research company Canalys believes that the Apple Watch Series 3 had a strong demand in this year’s wearable market, the report stated that the demand was so strong there was a shortage in the “major” market which includes China, it seems the Series 3’s cellular data support is a big hit among consumers.

Apple ranked first at 23% over its other competitors, Xiaomi who was the top Chinese electronic band maker held a close second place with 21% in shipment, with Fitbit at 20%, Huawei came in at 6%, followed by Samsung at 5%, and other band makers combined had 25%.

Some GPS-Only Apple Watch Series 3 Users Report Unusual ‘Display Stripes’

Some GPS-only Apple Watch Series 3 owners report they’re seeing “unexpected stripes” along the edge of the display when the display is turned off.

9to5Mac:

The issue is mostly noticeable when the display is turned off, as pictured in the image above from Apple’s internal materials describing the problem. Apple also doesn’t list the new cellular version of the Apple Watch Series 3 as experiencing the issue, and it’s possible that model avoided the defect due to a different display configuration with the built-in antenna.

A few 9to5Mac writers with the GPS Apple Watch Series 3 aren’t experiencing the issue, and from reports online it doesn’t yet seem to be a widespread problem among early adopters of the new device.

Apple store staff and authorized repair outlets have been informed about the issue, says 9to5Mac. Apple says customers can check for the stripes by rubbing their finger along the display while its off “to allow smearing to appear.” Users may have to breathe on the screen.

Apple is said to be simply replacing the affected Series 3 units, mailing the old units in.

WatchOS 4.1 brings Wi-Fi toggle, Apple Music, and Radio streaming

The latest software update for the Apple Watch, watchOS 4.1, is now available for all users to download. The update brings a slew of promised features to the new Series 3 Watch, including Apple Music and Radio streaming support, GymKit compatibility, and a Wi-Fi toggle option in the Control Center.

The Apple Watch Series 3 has been available since mid-September, but a couple of major features did not accompany the device at launch. Series 3 devices with LTE service will be able to stream content from Apple Music and Radio with this update, as well as content from the user's iCloud Music Library. Previously, Apple Watch models could only sync selected playlists from iTunes for playback through connected wireless earbuds. Now, those with an LTE-supported device can use that data service or Wi-Fi to stream content no matter where they are (as long as the wireless connection is decent) and without the paired iPhone present. The update also brings a new Radio app that lets users stream radio stations like Beats1 and stations accessible via Apple Music subscriptions.

WatchOS 4.1 brings GymKit to the Series 3, allowing the device to connect to compatible exercise equipment to share data. This means users will be able to pair the Series 3 with a capable treadmill, elliptical, or other gym machine to display data like heart rate directly on the machine. Compatible gym equipment will also share data like distance with the Series 3 so it can capture more accurate in-gym workout data.
