While some rumors have revealed that the Apple Watch Series 9 would not exist, as it could be replaced with the mysterious Apple Watch X in 2024it is now an important magazine in the Apple world to report that the Apple Watch Series 9 is actually in production and to sort out the rumors relating to the device.
A guide of Macrumorsindeed suggests that Apple Watch Series 9 is still alive and well, but that it will be a “minor” update for Cupertino’s smartwatches, exactly like the Apple Watch Series 8 was last year. If you thought that the Apple sensor for diabetes would be implemented on this year’s smartwatch, then, you were wrong.
The policy of the Cupertino giant would in fact be that of wait until 2024 for a big refresh of its line of smartwatches, which should cover both the “numbered” Apple Watch, with the jump to the X line already rumored some time ago, and the Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch Ultra, with the release of Apple Watch SE 3, which could receive a redesign and a new chip, and Apple Watch Ultra 2, which will have a more resistant and larger display, a longer battery life and some additional sensors.
However, that doesn’t mean that Apple Watch Series 9 will not bring any changes with it: on the contrary, the smartwatch is expected to be launched with an S9 chip, which is expected to bring some performance and efficiency improvements compared to last year’s S8 chip architecture, which on the other hand was identical to that of S7 chip from Apple Watch Series 7, in turn modeled on that of the S6 chip of the sixth generation Apple Watch.
Another rather important update could be theinclusion of Bluetooth 5.3 also on the Apple Watch Series 9, following the launch of the feature last year on the Apple Watch Ultra. However, it is difficult to say whether the improvement in Bluetooth connectivity will be accompanied by new functions or if it will further improve the battery life of the device.
