How it might work is not talked about, however the odds are that it’d behave like present mobile smartwatches: you might depart your telephone at residence whereas persevering with to get notifications and run apps. You’d doubtless nonetheless want the iPhone sooner or later (if simply to put in apps and get updates), however not almost as a lot as you do at this time.
