Apple finally officially announced that this product has been discontinued and taken off the shelves. Netizens: Make way for new products?

With the end of Apple's new product launch conference, the launch of Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch SE, Apple also officially removed and discontinued Apple Watch 3. It can be said that "the rumor has finally come true", or "make way for new products", in short, this oldest device that supports watchOS 8 will also exit the stage of the times. Apple Watch 3 was released in 2017. It is the oldest device that supports watchOS 8. It is an entry-level model, but both performance and design are now outdated. Many netizens and industry insiders have discontinued the iPod touch. There have been speculations that this watch may be discontinued this year. For people who have never owned an Apple Watch, the Apple Watch Series 3 is an entry-level model, and the lower price of $199 still attracts many people to buy it. But the Apple Watch 3 is heavy, with large bezels and corners around the display, and a built-in S3 chip, which is significantly inferior to the S5 chip of the Apple Watch SE and the S7 chip of the Apple Watch Series 7 in terms of performance. And following last year's iOS 14.6 and watchOS 7.5 updates, Apple Watch 3 users had to unpair and re-pair the device from their linked iPhone when updating watch OS because it didn't have enough internal storage to complete the update independently. The watch OS9 launched this time is no longer supported, also because there is not enough memory to complete the update. Moreover, the official claim that the Apple Watch 3 has a battery life of 18 hours. However, in order to get 18 hours of battery life, it needs to be achieved under certain conditions. It is reported that only "occasional use" can achieve 18 hours of battery life, and if you perform specific tasks, the battery life will also be greatly reduced. In fact, as early as last year, it was rumored that the Watch Series 3 will be discontinued when watchOS 8 is released, but it is still sold on e-commerce platforms in the first half of this year, and it is now considered "popular".
