Thinner Apple Watch could debut at WWDC in June, more on the iPhone 7 Plus

Thinner Apple Watch could debut at WWDC in June, more on the iPhone 7 Plus
The general rumors have claimed that we wouldn't be seeing a major update to the Apple Watch until the next generation iPhones are announced in September, but analyst Brian White got to take a tour of the Chinese supply chain and he says it looks likely that Apple might be bumping up that timeline. He also had some things to say about the iPhone 7 Plus.

White's comments on the iPhone 7 Plus aren't exactly new. He just apparently confirmed previous rumors that the reported dual-camera system would only be on the iPhone 7 Plus and not on the iPhone 7. However, what he saw and thinks about the Apple Watch is a bit more interesting. According to what he saw in the supply chain, the next version of the Apple Watch could be as much as 20 to 40% thinner than the previous model, and he thinks it may be announced sooner than expected. 

White said he walked away from the tour with the impression that the Apple Watch 2 would be announced in the next 2-3 months, which would make the timing just right for it to debut at Apple's World Wide Developer Conference in June. Apple has shied away from hardware announcements at WWDC in order to focus on the "developer" side of it all, but the company has also been trying to space out hardware launches a bit more, so it might make sense for a new Apple Watch at WWDC. 

We'll have to wait and see.
