Going by the tradition iFans and tech enthusiasts are expecting to see the launch of Apple Watch Series 3 this year. TPK has been reporting losses thanks to the low TOL yields, and the company has apparently chose to stop supplying glass panels for the Apple Watch in the hope that it can return to profitability.
