    Re: Apple Watch Series 6

    The biggest question (for me) is the one they didn't address: can they get longer battery life?

    That’ll have to wait until someone invents all-new battery chemistry that can be produced at scale.

    Agreed. Or if they can significantly cut power consumption - which is hard to do with a small, 'always-on' device

    My impression is if the SoC is reducted in size, the case size will be smaller or more components may be added.

    Yup. The first prototypes barely ran a few hours (I think it was less than a couple hours!) before they conked out. It took a lot of code optimization and custom silicon design to get them to a usable state. And the first version of watchOS didn’t even allow native apps, either. The fact that the Series 5’s CPU is so much faster — and it has LTE, GPS, and an always-on display, none of which the first-gen had — while maintaining just as much battery life is, frankly, pretty crazy.

    IMO, Apple is satified if you get a day of use from your AW.

    Higher water resistance -Does that imply increase in thickness?
    If yes, the battery size will go up too, hopefully.
