Apple Watch Series 5 smartwatch launched along with new iPad

Apple today announced the new Apple Watch Series 5, the successor to the popular Apple Watch Series 4. The Series 5 will have the widest assortment of case finishes yet, with 100 percent recycled aluminum, stainless steel, and the additions of titanium and ceramic. But the Series 5 comes with an all-new always-on display that does not go dark like most smartwatches.

Meanwhile, the new iPad (7th Gen.) has been upgraded to a 10.2-inch 2160×1620 display, up from the 9.7-inch screen on the iPad (6th Gen.) model.

At the same time, the cheaper aluminium case options remain. Available for order today and hitting stores on September 20, the Apple Watch Series 5 starts at $399.

The Apple Watch Series 5 is official, and has just been unveiled on stage at the Steve Jobs Theatre at Apple's campus in Cupertino. Both models will be available in stores beginning Friday, September 20. Apple didn't announce whether these models would be available in both GPS-only and cellular. The Apple Watch now holds the title of the best selling smartwatch, and the Apple Watch 4 is the company's most elegant device yet (sitting near the top of our best smartwatch ranking).

In Zimbabwe, hospitals battle with Mugabe's legacy
According to Leo, Mugabe was a chief hence he would be buried according to traditional rites. In private they say the feud with Mugabe's family could have been handled better.

It does this with new display driver, power efficiency and ambient light sensor that work together with software to deliver always-on display while not diminishing the watch's 18-hour battery life.

The Apple Watch Series 5 will also come with compass, which users can add to their home screen as well. The existing emergency calling feature is going worldwide too, and will be supported in 150 countries for extra peace of mind.

If you get a cellular Apple Watch Series 5 model, you also can complete worldwide calls to emergency services, regardless of whether a mobile plan has been activated. Anyone who wants to participate in the research study may do so through the Apple Research app - the company was quick to point out it won't have access to any of the users' information. But without robust coverage for the next-generation wireless standard, Apple apparently made a decision to sit this one out for at least one more year. While the names of the next iPhones are not yet confirmed, Apple is expected to launch iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Beyond that, you can expect the same 40mm and 44mm watch bodies.
