Whats next for the Apple Watch, Now that the Apple Watch has built-in LTE. The Watch could follow Apple’s “Force Touch” equipped laptops or iPhone 7 and higher) models by making the button and digital crown “solid state” parts that don’t actually move when clicked according to some rumors.
A click would be simulated by vibrations from the Apple Watch’s Taptic Engine while the crown is still said to rotate freely. Removing a movable part from laptop, phones or in this case watch has a lot of pros like increase space for important things like extra battery, the device becomes more reliable, easier to build and many more. The other part of the rumor is that these buttons could also host sensors capable of health tracking, and push the device toward a future where it doesn’t have any buttons at all. But first, the moving parts have to go.
