Perhaps this is a sign that Apple has been able to make a truly workable LTE watch, which could herald an age of Apple Watches being treated as not merely accessories but actual iPhone replacements.

A new government filing from the Eurasian Economic Commission suggests that Apple is preparing six new Apple Watch models for launch in the near future.

The list is included in a commercialization permit issued by the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), spotted by French Apple blog Consomac.

Whatever Apple has in store, judging by the arrival of these model numbers at the ECC, we won't have to wait much longer to find out. This, as a part of legal requirements for any encrypted devices sold in Armenia, Belarus, Russia and more.

The area where she fell off could be seen blocked by a crew member and caution tape in photos taken by a fellow cruise passenger. She declined to tell reporters how she fell off the Norwegian Star cruise ship or what happened in the moments just before.

These model numbers aren't associated with any known Apple Watch. This seems likely to be the year in which Apple launches an updated design if the Apple Watch models end up having a larger screen as rumoured.

They will run watchOS 5 out of the box, the upcoming software that is still in the preview stage. Were also expecting a trio of new iPhones, so it will be an interesting month.

From the model numbers of the new units - A1977, A1978, A1975, A1976, A2007 and A2008 - it appears that Apple may launch the Apple Watch Series 4 with one model less than the Apple Watch Series 3.
