New Apple Watch to get a bigger screen and design changes

Apple Watch 10 is reportedly getting a bigger screen and a thinner design, while the design of the Ultra model is expected to stay the same.

According to analyst Ming Chi Kuo, the upcoming Apple Watch Series 10 – set to be released this fall – will feature a slimmer design.

Additionally, screen sizes will increase from 45mm and 41mm to 45mm and 49mm, says the analyst quoting sources in the company.

On Sunday, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reported that after launching iPad Pro, its thinnest gadget ever made, Apple will bring similar design changes to other product categories. Kuo’s announcement backs these claims.

Kuo also says that the design of the more expensive model of the watch, the Ultra, will stay the same. However, Apple might add additional color options.

According to the report, in the second half Apple will start incorporating parts made using 3D printing technology into its watches, as intensive testing over the past year has significantly improved the production efficiency of 3D printing.

The latest Apple Watch models are expected to be launched this autumn along with the iPhone 16, and come with the latest Apple's software, the watchOS 11.

One of the updates of the operating system will be the Vitals app that surfaces key health metrics and context to help users make more informed daily decisions, Apple announced last week at its Worldwide developers conference.

It will also be able measure training load when working out to improve fitness and performance, as well as offer additional support for pregnant users.
