Apple Shares Video Highlighting Apple Music Streaming Over LTE on Apple Watch Series 3

Apple today uploaded a new Apple Watch Series 3 ad to its YouTube channel, highlighting the Apple Watch Series 3 and its upcoming Apple Music integration. The video was first shown on stage during Apple's iPhone-centric event earlier this week.

The ad features a skateboarder listening to music streamed from his Apple Watch to the AirPods while he performs a series of skateboard tricks.


With Apple Watch Series 3 models that feature cellular connectivity, Apple Music songs will be able to be streamed directly to the device over an LTE connection, no iPhone needed.

An Apple Music subscription and an iPhone 6 or later with the same service provider and wireless service plan are required to enable the Apple Music streaming feature on the Apple Watch Series 3.

Apple has not revealed how streaming music will affect the battery life on the Apple Watch. With most tasks over LTE, battery life is impacted. A phone call over LTE, for example, will drain the Apple Watch's battery in just an hour.

Apple says the Apple Music streaming feature is coming soon to the Apple Watch Series 3.

Can someone edit the video so $10 bills fly out of the actors' pockets every few seconds?

Why is an iPhone 6 or later required for the Series 3 when the previous S0-S2 only requires an iPhone 5 or later?

I really like this ad. Good job Apple!


Apple's marketing is always unique. They manage to address the most unique features the product offers in ways to draw the consumer to their products. I think they have the best marketing in the tech industry.

All the LTE stuff will be amazing the few times you go without your phone. Just remember your Watch charger since you will need that every two hours..

Love the ad as well, did that guy really perform all those tricks? o_O


Yup! His name is Kilian Martin, and he rides for Powell skateboards. Just search his name in YouTube for some amazing, cinematic skate vids.
