Apple unveiled the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 recently. These new watches provide minor improvements over their predecessor for those who have been following the lineup. It is almost identical to the Series 8, which was almost identical to the Series 7, in the case of the Series 9. Everyone's hopes were raised when rumors of a substantial overhaul and upgrade for the tenth anniversary Apple Watch X surfaced. Apple's ambitions, though, don't seem to be all that spectacular after all.
Ming-Chi Kuo, a renowned analyst and frequent source of Apple leaks, claims that the "2024 Apple Watch will unlikely have (sic) significant innovative experiences." Both a microLED display and a blood glucose monitoring feature will not be included in this Watch.
The comment, depending on what Apple labels the wearable, is arguably ambiguous because it does not specifically mention the Apple Watch Series 10 or Apple Watch X. Depending on how you read it, you may say that Apple would reserve the majority of the interesting features for a subsequent model that would sit below the Apple Watch Ultra. This would result in a base Apple Watch that remains boringly standard.
Depending on how far technology has advanced, according to Kuo, the Apple Watch Series 11 may or may not include a microLED display and blood glucose monitoring in 2025.
According to Kuo's most recent forecast, the Apple Watch X won't be released in 2024, according to a report by Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. For this alleged tenth-anniversary edition, Apple was said to be working on a revised magnetic strap system. Despite not being directly related to the launch of the Apple Watch X, the company was also rumored to be developing a microLED display and blood pressure monitoring in the future.
Remember that Mark Gurman and Ming-Chi Kuo have both been incorrect in the past on the Apple Watch. However, Apple never made a Series 7 Apple Watch with a flat display, despite the two people's optimism.
Recently that the titanium used in the construction of the iPhone 15 Pro caused its overheating problems. But it turned out that the issue was caused by a flaw in iOS 17, which was resolved with a patch without slowing down the phone.
In the upcoming months, it will be interesting to see how the Apple Watch Series 10/Apple Watch X develops. We anticipate finding out more soon.
