Verizon accidentally confirmed the arrival of the Apple Watch Series 3 on its app over the weekend. This error appeared very briefly on the My Verizon app before the carrier took it down. The app listed the Apple Watch Series 3 under the configuration page which is used to add a new device to a Verizon account.
While we already know about tomorrow’s official unveiling of the Apple Watch Series 3, this particular leak confirms the “Series 3” moniker that Apple is expected to use. This also tells us that Apple will offer the LTE capable Apple Watch through major carriers in the U.S.
Strangely, however, the naming convention doesn’t seem to match with the firmware accessed by the developers. The iOS 11 GM code has no mention of the Series 3 moniker, with only Series 1 and 2 mentioned.
Keeping this in mind, it’s important to understand that Verizon is probably using this as a placeholder before the big reveal. Given that we have uncovered contrasting reports about the name of the upcoming Apple Watch upgrade, we’re going to take this new report with a grain of salt for the time being.
Thankfully, we just have a day to wait before all the suspense and mystery is put to rest. We have already learnt that the upcoming iPhone will be known as the iPhone X, while another leak revealed the entire setup process of Face ID, which is going to make its debut with the iPhone X.
