If the rumors are true, Apple is working on its third-gen Apple Watch which could be unveiled alongside the new iPhones on the 12th of September, which is tomorrow. However none of this has been confirmed, but it seems that we might have gotten additional corroboration about the device thanks to Verizon.

It was noticed by users on Reddit (via 9to5Mac) that Verizon’s app made mention of the Apple Watch Series 3 in one of the configuration screens used to adding a device. This is particularly interesting because one of the rumored features of the Apple Watch Series 3 is LTE connectivity, meaning that Verizon could be one of the carriers to offer Apple Watch Series 3 owners a plan for their smartwatch.

Now whether not this is Verizon simply speculating and getting themselves ready for the possibility of a launch remains to be seen, but as 9to5Mac notes, the leaked iOS 11 GM build does not seem to make any mention of the Apple Watch Series 3. It does reference the Series 1 and Series 2, so it’s strange that the Series 3 was not mentioned.

However that doesn’t mean the device doesn’t exist. In fact recent reports have revealed that the Apple Watch app is displaying a smartwatch with a new face and new digital crown, and there has also been mention of potential new finishes, but we guess we will find out all the official details tomorrow.
