A second rumor hints at an Apple Watch with micro-LED display next year

Apple has been granted a patent for “Exercise-based Watch Face and Complications” that hints at even more fitness interfaces on the Apple Watch.

The first Apple Watch with a micro-LED display will debut in spring 2025, according to information tweeted by display analyst Ross Young

He predicts that a microLED Apple Watch will launch in spring 2025. Young says production on the panels for the smartwatch update will begin at the end of 2024.

Last week, as noted by MacRumors, tech analyst Jeff Pu also predicted such an Apple Watch update. He said the high-end smartwatch — which would almost certainly be a next gen Apple Watch Ultra — will likely adopt a larger 2.1-inch micro-LED display measured diagonally. This would allow for increased brightness compared to current Apple Watch models with OLED displays.
