Should you really be waiting for the Apple Watch Series X?
We already know Apple Watch Series 9 and Watch Ultra 2 are getting announced at the event tomorrow. However, based on what’s coming in 2024, you may want to skip this minor upgrade.
According to Mark Gurman, the Apple Watch X is set to bring a huge redesign that changes everything about the wearable, and the secret sauce is magnets.
Apple has stuck rigidly to a mechanical system for attaching watch straps, and it’s been great for maintaining the reusability of old straps. But they have been awkward for the company to workaround, as they are taking up a lot of space.
That’s where the magnets will come in. According to these leaks, watch straps will attach magnetically, which enables Apple to both make the Watch X smaller, and stuff it with more battery/improving the internal components.
AirPods may also be making the jump to USB-C
But another device may be making the transition too, as rumors suggest AirPods will be reintroduced with the new port at tomorrow’s ‘WonderLust’ event.
This claim relates to the standard AirPods, and it is unclear whether AirPods Pro will be making the switch over (unless the company quietly changes it on the website after the event).
However, Gurman has previously reported on Apple possibly releasing a USB-C AirPods Pro case alongside the iPhone 15. Elsewhere, expectations are being set for a hearing test-esque feature in the software, which will “play different tones and sounds” to help determine how well a person can hear.
iPhone 15 and 15 Pro dimensions have been leaked
We’ve heard a lot of rumors, but today, MacRumors gave us a clear view of the dimensions and weight of the new iPhones.
In short, the iPhone 15 isn’t changing much at all, and the iPhone 15 Pro models are benefitting from smaller bezels and a titanium frame that reduces the weight by up to 10%.
