Apple recently launched the Apple Watch Ultra 2 this year, following the success of its predecessor. This time, the Apple Watch Ultra comes with a new dual-core CPU that has 5.6 billion transistors. This is capable of executing many features, like the tap gesture, high altitude, and many more.
As we know, Apple holds an event every September for their new iPhone series along with the Apple Watch series. However, according to the renowned Apple supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the company might not launch the Apple Watch Ultra 3 next year. Instead, only the iPhone 16 series is expected to be launched in September of 2024
According to the Apple Police reports Apple has not yet started any work on the next Ultra Apple Watch series. This might be one reason that Apple will not be launching the Apple Watch Ultra 3 next year.
He finds it ‘unusual’ due to the lengthy development cycle. This suggests that by the same time last year, the Ultra 2 was already under development. Kuo indicates that if Apple doesn’t begin work on the Ultra 3 by December, it’s ‘nearly certain’ we won’t have a new Apple Watch Ultra in 2024
Given that the Apple Watch Ultra 3 is not anticipated for 2024, predictions suggest the shipments of the Ultra series will see a decline of about 20-30% next year compared to 2023. Overall, Apple Watch shipments are expected to drop by roughly 10% next year, amounting to a total of around 35 million units.
