Upcoming Apple Watch updates will see a considerable performance bump

In his latest “Power On” newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says the upcoming Apple Watch lineup is expected to include three tiers: the 41- and 45-millimeter Series 9 models, as well as a second-generation Apple Watch Ultra. But there’ll be no new Apple Watch SE.

“All of this year’s models will get a fairly sizable performance bump thanks to the new S9 processor,” Gurman says. “This marks the first time since the S6 chip launched in 2020 — with the Series 6 watch — that the lineup gets significant speed improvements.’

He adds that before the release of last year’s Ultra model, Apple tested a dark titanium color option. It ultimately canceled the option because designers didn’t like the appearance, but it could still theoretically arrive in 2023, Gurman notes.
