There might not be a new Apple Watch Ultra in 2024
A new Apple Watch Ultra model might not be arriving next year.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuoclaims there is no sign of the Apple Watch Ultra 3 development at the moment, which is unusual given the typical product development cycle. Kuo added that if Apple does not start the development by December, it is highly likely that there will not be a new Apple Watch Ultra 3 in 2024.
Kuo thinks the delay in the development of the Apple Watch Ultra 3 is due to three factors. First, thedevelopment of innovative health management features on the smartwatch needs a longer time. To miniaturize advanced technology is not easy. Second, Apple needs to ensure the manufacturability of the new features. Third, Apple has to fix some issues related to microLED production.
Earlier this year, there were multiple reports of microLEDdisplayscoming to the Apple Watch Ultra in 2024. However, the rumoured timeline was said to be delayed with display analyst Ross Young believing thata 2025 release looks more likely.TheElec, on the other hand, thinks a launch in 2026 is more of a possibility.
Bloomberg, one of the more reliable sources on Apple's releases, suggested in August that Apple could celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Apple Watch with a "Watch X" debut in 2024 or 2025. The rumoured Watch X is said to be the biggest revamp yet with a microLED display and blood pressure monitoring technology.
If there is no new Apple Watch Ultra model in 2024, Kuo estimates that shipments of theApple Watch Ultra would drop by 20% to 30% in 2024 and overall Apple Watch shipments could decline by 10%.
