Apple Watch 2 could be thinner or have a larger battery

Apple's design philosophy is simple: Launch a beautiful product and then refine, refine, refine with every model after.

The Apple Watch is over a year old and rumors about what Apple will do to improve it on a second-generation model are sparse.

Still, the latest comes from DigiTimes, which has a rocky track record when it comes to leaking new information on unreleased Apple devices.

Citing Apple supplier TPK Holding, DigiTimes claims Apple will use thinner "One Glass Solution" OLED displays that could potentially help reduce the thickness of the Apple Watch 2.

If Apple doesn't put the Apple Watch 2 on a diet, though, the company could also use the saved space to include a larger battery or other components.

It's been previously rumored that the Apple Watch would gain standalone LTE cellular connectivity and maybe a built-in GPS, but there haven't been any firmer reports to give those reports any weight.

It's unclear when Apple plans to launch the Apple Watch 2. Early word suggests a release this fall, possibly alongside the release of watchOS 3, which was announced at Worldwide Developers Conference.

WatchOS 3 will give existing Apple Watches a huge speed boost and put apps front and center like they should have been at launch.
