Apple Watch’s “Slimmer” Redesign Might Get Postponed by a Year

Apple Watch fans hoping for a redesign in 2024 might be disappointed. Rumors about a completely new “Apple Watch X” to celebrate the device’s 10th anniversary have been circulating for a while, but this report says that the design will remain more or less the same as the current models.

Early reports mentioned a significant design change for the Apple Watch Series 10, featuring a thinner profile and a new magnetic band system. However, news leaks alleged schematics for the Series 10 show a design very similar to current models, with the main difference being a size increase to 45mm and 49mm options, each featuring around 2 inches of screen on the wrist.

Analysts offer a few explanations: Apple might be happy with the current design, might be facing production challenges with the new design, or the redesign might be pushed back to 2025. This could be because of a major design shift within Apple, possibly triggered by the recently announced M4 iPad Pro – the company’s thinnest device ever

While a new design would be exciting for some, the news isn’t all bad. With the Apple Watch X, which will come out with watchOS 11, unveiled at WWDC, likely sticking to a familiar form factor, there’s a good chance existing Apple Watch bands will still be compatible.

Ultimately, we’ll have to wait for Apple’s official announcement to know for sure what Series 10 will contain.
