The watchOS 10 operating system for the Apple Watch is slated to make its debut in June, and reports indicate that it will be the most significant software update to the wearable device in recent memory. It is scheduled to roll out to all of the most recent and advanced Apple Watch models, beginning with the Apple Watch Series 4 and progressing upward.
This is what Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has to say about the matter (opens in new tab), whose newsletter and Twitter updates are responsible for starting the most recent speculations regarding the new operating system.
In his article, Gurman states, “The watchOS update will tell you the vast majority of what you need to know about the Apple Watch in 2023.” The upgrade to the operating system will be the primary focus because it is anticipated that there would be only minor changes to the hardware.
In addition to the Apple Watch Series 8, two significant new models were introduced for the Apple Watch in the year 2022. It was the next iteration of the affordable alternative to the main Apple Watch line, and it was able to cut some corners in the construction to reduce the price, such as using older processors and having a nylon backing rather than stainless steel. As a result, it is an excellent entry-level option. The Apple Watch SE 2 was the most recent model of this affordable alternative.
On the other hand, the premium Apple Watch Ultra was a super-sized, durable adventure watch that had the most recent technology, very precise GPS options, and even a functioning dive computer.
Gurman does not anticipate quite the same magnitude of a step forward in 2023 for the Apple Watch hardware, given that 2018 was such a successful year. Instead, he expects that Apple will release watchOS 10, which would have a revamped user interface, as an “extensive upgrade” for the Apple Watch.
The status quo is about to shift.
It’s possible that the routine way in which you access your apps could soon be altered. In addition to new lunar calendar watch faces and other adjustments, the watchOS 9 upgrade that was released the year before provided several important new running measures.
watchOS 10 is rumored to have a far more robust design. We anticipate a big makeover of the navigation of the Apple Watch operating system, which will give your watch a bit of a facelift in addition to changing the way you access certain apps and capabilities. What this actually means is still up in the air, but we’re expecting a significant redesign of the navigation.
When Apple’s annual WWDC conference arrives, which it will do on June 5th, 2023, we will definitely have additional information to share with you. During his keynote speech, Tim Cook is anticipated to announce specifics on watchOS 10; for additional information, refer to our guide to WWDC 2023.
