Apple’s smart wearables will also be updated this year, but compared to the MacBook’s dramatic changes, the new Apple Watch and AirPods changes like a pure product line.
This year’s updated Apple Watch will still be available in 40mm and 44mm sizes, and even the design will be almost the same, so the old strap can also be used in new watches. In recent days, a French Instagramer named Steven Huon also exposed a face photo of the suspected new Apple Watch (model A2157), which proves that the new watch looks the same as the old one.
The change in the new watch is mainly on the material. Based on the exposure information of the watchOS 6 beta , iHelpBR found the “evidence” of the new watch with titanium alloy and ceramic body on the system test page. Under the titanium alloy, the Apple Watch’s case is more durable (corrosion-resistant, scratch-resistant, hypoallergenic), and the lightweight case also enhances the wearing comfort of the watch.
Of course, the watch that can be made of titanium alloy is not too cheap. From the current price of $705 USD for the Apple Watch stainless steel case, the watch with titanium case should start at $1128 to $1410 USD.
As for the new AirPods, it is based on the current increase in waterproof and noise reduction, but sources said that the release time is not necessarily in September this year, it may be in 2020.
