Upcoming Apple Watch Series 10 Rumored to Eliminate Smaller Models

While it is expected that the Watch Series 9 will receive its annual update, there are reports indicating that Apple may surprise consumers with the release of the Watch Series 10.

The focus of the upcoming Apple event will primarily be on upcoming devices such as the iPhone 16 and Apple Watch Series 10, in contrast to the recently concluded WWDC which centered around AI and software.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, a renowned Apple analyst, the upcoming Watch Series 10 will bring about the most significant design change in years. Kuo claims that the new Apple smartwatch will feature a larger screen and a slimmer design compared to its predecessors.

Additionally, it should be noted that according to Kuo, the upcoming Apple Watch Series 10 will be available in larger sizes of 45mm and 49mm. This indicates that the smaller 41mm option may be discontinued. Kuo also mentions that the watch will feature slimmer bezels, resulting in an increased display area.

Furthermore, the Watch Series 10 boasts a “slimmer design,”which aligns with Mark Gurman’s statement that Apple plans to reduce the thickness of both the MacBook Pro and Watch following their success with thinner iPads.

Despite not sounding ideal for those with smaller wrists, a thinner watch with a bigger screen may be a beneficial upgrade.

According to Gurman, Apple’s goal is to produce a new type of Apple devices that will be the thinnest and lightest in their respective categories, setting a benchmark for the entire technology industry.

Additionally, Kuo reports that, beginning in the latter half of 2024, the Apple Watch will incorporate components produced using 3D printing. He mentions that extensive testing in the past year has purportedly enhanced the manufacturing effectiveness of 3D printing.

He stated that BLT’s shipments of 3D-printed components are anticipated to increase in the coming years, thanks to the cost benefits of 3D printing. This growth also has the potential to enable the production of Apple Watch cases.

He had previously noted that the same was true for Watch Ultra 2, stating that the utilization of 3D-printed parts would allow for fast production and cost savings for Apple.

According to Kuo’s latest report, the Apple Watch Ultra 3 is anticipated to remain largely unchanged, although there is a possibility of a darker case option being added.
