Apple Watch 2 battery and screen info

And finally: Next Apple Watch to get battery boost and more

Another week and another Apple Watch 2 rumour but, if true, this one is a pearler. DigiTimes (hit and miss with its reports, it must be said) have it on good authority that Apple is making use of new, slimmer, OGS screen tech for its next smartwatch and this will mean either a thinner model or a battery boost as there will be more room for juice in the tank.

The report said: "Apple will change touch panel technology from G/G to OGS (one glass solution) in the new Apple Watch to be launched in the second half of 2016."
