Upcoming Apple Watch models appear on Bluetooth SIG ahead of Sep 12 launch
Prepend to the content
- Apple will officially unveil the new Apple Watch alongside the Apple Watch Ultra 2 and four new iPhones on September 12
- The Apple Watch Series 9 is not expected to carry a lot of hardware changes, though it’ll be available in a new Pink variant
- Meanwhile, the second-gen Apple Watch Ultra could be available in a new darker titanium finish
Upcoming smartphones and wearables often make it to databases like Bluetooth SIG ahead of their official unveiling. Apple has joined the fray by filing a new listing for a 2023 watchOS subsystem. This isn’t particularly surprising as Apple is expected to unveil the Apple Watch Series 9 on September 12, alongside the quartet of iPhone 15 smartphones.
Unfortunately, the Bluetooth SIG listing doesn’t provide any insights into the hardware specifications of the upcoming Apple Watch model. While Bluetooth 5.3 is mentioned, models like the Apple Watch SE, Series 8, and Ultra already feature this standard.
Based on the revelations by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, we’re expecting the Apple Watch Series 9 next month, while a second-gen Apple Watch is also on the cards, per Gurman and another renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Separately, we’ve also encountered reports of an Apple Watch X launching next year, succeeding the Series 9. Keeping this in mind, the 2024 Apple Watch refresh could be something to behold, especially considering the fact that next month’s Series 9 is rumoured to feature the same hardware as the Series 8. Apple is further expected to unveil a Pink version of the Apple Watch Series 9, potentially the only major change from its predecessor.
What we know about the Apple Watch Ultra (2nd gen)
With no major upgrades expected on the Apple Watch Series 9, all eyes are firmly set on the second-gen Apple Watch Ultra. There’s reportedly going to be a faster Apple S9 processor based on the Apple A15 Bionic, per Gurman. The A15 Bionic was last used on the iPhone 13 series.
Not much else is known about the internal hardware changes expected to be onboard the 2nd gen Apple Watch Ultra, though it has been rumoured to be available in a darker titanium finish, complementing the existing Space Black titanium case on the currently available Apple Watch Ultra.
It will be interesting to see if Apple will bundle any other upgrades with its second-gen rugged smartwatch and if the manufacturer would be tempted to hike the price of the new wearable. The Apple Watch Ultra currently sells in India for Rs 89,900.
