Why the Apple Watch’s LTE problems aren’t really problems
The early reviews of the new, LTE-flavored Apple Watch are in, and they've found a problem. The LTE connection experiences a particular problem when out and about: if the Watch joins open Wi-Fi networks without internet, it won't automatically failover to the data connection. Instead, it'll try and use the Wi-Fi connection, even if it doesn't have internet.
The end result, according to testers, is an intermittent connection when you're out and about. Because this is Apple, and it's a verifiable problem with a brand-new product, everyone is understandably excited about the bug. But suggesting it's going to ruin the launch of the LTE Apple Watch, set for this Friday, is just not true.
