Apple is endeavouring to add cellular capabilities to its next-generation Apple Watch, according to a new report from The Wall Street Journal. Citing people familiar with the matter, the next-generation wearable may include cellular connectivity and a faster processor. The WSJ report also highlights the struggles that Apple Watch has faced; despite the fact that sales of the Apple Watch outpaced the sales of the iPhone in the first year that device was released, many users have observed that the current iteration of the wearable is too slow, too limited, or simply not useful enough, with a limited ecosystem of applications. Similarities are drawn between the Apple Watch and the original iPhone, and even the original iPod, noting that each of those devices started small and took a few years to hit their stride.
