Apple Watch Series 5 announced
Apple has announced its newest wearable with new features called the Apple Watch Series 5.
One of its newest features is the existence of a built-in compass where your location can now be revealed in the watch. Another feat is the Always-On Retina display which allows you to see the screen even if you tilt the device.
“We’ve seen Apple Watch have a meaningful impact on our customers’ lives and we’re excited to deliver even more capabilities with Apple Watch Series 5 and watchOS 6 — The seamless integration of new hardware and software delivers an enhanced experience that makes it even easier to stay active and connected to the people and information users care about,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer.
