Apple Watch 3 survived for five years and perhaps was the gateway for most users who use an Apple Watch. Launched in 2017, Apple Watch got regular software updates, and price cuts and remained the most affordable Apple Watch one could buy. However, now Apple has finally pulled the plug on one of its most popular smartwatches.
Back in 2019, when Apple launched the AirPods Pro, they were hailed by one and almost all as the benchmark device. The noise cancellation was terrific, the fit was comfortable and it had the most consistent sound output. The battery life wasn’t that great, but AirPods Pro were the device to which every premium true wireless earbuds were compared. Now that the second-gen AirPods Pro have arrived, Apple has discontinued the original AirPods Pro.
Apple Watch SE was launched alongside Apple Watch Series 6 as the toned-down variant. It had a lot of top features but just not the best ones. It was Apple’s idea to have another affordable lineup alongside Watch Series 3. With the launch of the second-gen Apple Watch SE, the first one has officially been discontinued.
