Watch Series 3: Apple Watch Series 3 has problems with staying connected to LTE, reports AppleInsider. Several reviewers have noted that the device will switch to unknown Wi-Fi networks instead of remaining on LTE. This problem can cause disruptions in service and keep the device from reaching its full potential. AAPL knows about the problem and says that it is working on a fix. It notes that the remedy will be ready in a future update.

Face ID: A new report claims that Face ID may come to all 2018 iPhone devices, MacRumors notes. This report comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. He says that AAPL will be willing to adopt the technology for all of its 2018 smartphones if it is received well. However, the company may still choose to go with Touch ID if the new tech doesn’t go over well with customers. If it does go back to Touch ID, Kuo claims that it will be located under the display on future devices.

Cannon Lake Delay: Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) is delaying the release of its Cannon Lake processors to the end of next year, reports 9to5Mac. Cannon Lake are the next generation of laptop processors that Intel has been planning to release. MacBook laptops use Intel processors. This is causing some concern about the 2018 MacBook update. Without the new processors, Apple may end up releasing new computers that aren’t a major improvement over this year’s.
