Recently, we heard records that a hidden “diagnostic port” existed on early Apple Watches currently in testing. The TechCrunch report suggested the port was being utilized for diagnostic objectives.


The port has a 6-dot brass call range inside the groove for the ‘bottom’ band adapter slot. Several sources have verified its existence and positioning to me. It is quite comparable to the adapter for the Lightning adapter in apples iphone, as that adapter currently only uses 6 of its 8 offered pins.

Apple just recently began opening up the Lightning port for usage by 3rd events. A source states that this port is presently for diagnostic objectives just– however that there is absolutely nothing preventing it from being a link port for future accessories.The port was detected by our online forum participants in a variety of the new Apple Watch discount video clips that Apple launched today.

Matthew Panzarino, the original author of the report, verified today that the port still alreadies existing, however he stays uncertain if it will certainly deliver in the final version:


The Apple Watch will start shipping in April with pre-orders starting on April 10th.
