The next update for the Apple Watch that we will see at WWDC in June will bring, for the first time since its launch, a major UI redesignsomething that users have been asking for for a long time.
No major hardware changes to the Apple Watch are expected this year. Last year it featured the Apple Watch Ultra, a new larger Apple Watch with a sportier design, with also new straps specifically designed for a larger case than the “normal” Apple Watch. In the year 2024 it is rumored that there may be major changes to the Apple Watch, with new microLED screens and even an Apple Watch Ultra with a larger screen. But This year what we will have seems to be a mere internal update of the Apple Watch with improvements in autonomy, perhaps a new sensor and little else. At most a new color for the Ultra.
With all this, it seems that Apple wants to make version number 10 of watchOS important, and for this, according to Gurman, it will introduce the most important interface change since the launch of Apple’s smartwatch. Ten years are up and maybe the time has come for a new design in what we see on the screens of our Apple Watch, and perhaps the time is right for one of the biggest user requests to see the light: the sphere shop. If you want to change the interface of the clock, what better way to do it from the home screen with spheres created by the developers.
To confirm this news from Gurman we will have to wait until June 5thwhen WWDC 2023 begins and when Apple will introduce us to watchOS 10, in addition to iOS 17 and macOS 14.
