In commemoration of the Apple Watch’s 10th debut anniversary, Apple is reportedly working on a major redesign for the upcoming Apple Watch X. The device, however, is not expected to come out this year at least.
As for the next line-up of the Apple Watch series 9 arriving this September alongside the new iPhone, there will be a minor upgrade, possibly a faster processor. For every annual launch of a new Apple Watch, Apple has strictly persisted to introducing minor upgrades only, except when it launched the Apple Watch Ultra.
Last year’s Apple Watch upgrade included the addition of a body-temperature sensor, while the year before that, Apple surprised users with just a larger display.
The Apple Watch X, as speculated by Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, is going to come with a thinner watch case, magnetic band attachment points, a microLED display, and the most awaited feature: a blood pressure sensor. He adds that the device is likely to arrive either in late 2024 or maybe even the year after that.
