The interesting iPhone 2017 release gets even more curious because we hear about complex tactile vibrations. Apple could improve this features via better taptic engine.

Unannounced Apple Watch Coach Bands Listed as Sold Out

We’ve heard about new Apple Watch bands 2016 that were supposed to be designed by Coach. They actually appeared on the company’s website however no one officially announced the accessories. Users hoped to hear about these bands during WWDC 2016. Still the product was listed on the site.

There are curious reports about Apple Watch Coach bands. Without any announcement these luxury accessories were added to the site. The well-known designer was rumored to create nine impressive bands for the ‘fruit’ smartwatch. Apple could release Apple Watch 2 this fall and the designer’s bands are most likely meant for this next generation wearable.

Apple Watch Coach Bands 2016

As noted by experts who noticed Apple Watch bands by Coach on the website, the products were listed as ‘Sold out’ however no customer could purchase the accessory. The bands had impressive descriptions and promised to bring ‘pretty charm’ to each customers.

Since the listings were added as ‘sold out’ no one saw the price. The cost is still kept in secret since the accessories were most likely published ahead of official presentation and release date by mistake. If there is no announcement during WWDC – Coach could easily launch its new Apple Watch bands for either original wearable or the next generation Apple Watch 2 at any moment.

Of course, the accessories are useless without the device they are meant for. Apple Watch 2 is believed to be launched this year. It was expected in March or April but instead customers saw the release of the 4-inch iPhone SE. Maybe the wearable will be launched in the fall.

Users Losing Interest in Apple Watch?

At first there was a big Apple Watch interest from customers and developers. Apple presented its wearable over a year ago. There were tons of new applications for Apple Watch with iPhone support back then but now things are changing.

We don’t say there is no interest in Apple Watch from developers. They still create programs however the number of new wearable apps is not that high and doesn’t grow that fast. In fact it’s getting lower.

Apple Watch No Interest 2016

Just think about this. Developers release thousands of iOS applications. However for every 1,000 apps created for iPhones and iPads there is only one Apple Watch app. Such information comes from Realm source that is focused on mobile data.

Why did this happen? There are multiple reasons for this. Firstly, there is no Apple Watch 2 update in 2016 so far. Apple might prepare the release closer to Christmas time or postpone it for 2017. Secondly, most Apple Watch applications work as companions to your iPhone. Thus it’s hard to make much money selling them.

Besides, users seem to be more interested in Apple TV and are still in love with iPhones and iPads. This makes developers also focus on popular ‘fruit’ devices and pay less attention to the Apple Watch. Maybe one day the company will improve its wearable and make it a more digital innovative device to attract customers and make them want the smartwatch alone, without the need to pair it with the handset.

There are also rumors that Apple could annonce the Watch 2 model during WWDC 2016. If this happens developers could pay more attention to the Apple Watch apps in the next several months.
