Apple Watch Ultra With Nearly 10% Larger Display Rumored to Launch Next Year
A new Apple Watch Ultra with a larger 2.1-inch display will be released in 2024, according to a report by Taiwanese publication DigiTimes today, citing industry sources. This lines up with information shared last month by Jeff Pu, a technology analyst at Hong Kong-based investment firm Haitong International Securities.
The current Apple Watch Ultra has a screen size of around 1.93 inches, so the 2024 model would have a screen almost 10% larger and would likely become the first Apple Watch with a case size larger than 50mm. The new Ultra is also expected to be the first Apple Watch to adopt microLED display technology, which will result in higher brightness, lower power consumption and improved contrast ratio compared to current models with OLED displays.
It’s unclear if an Apple Watch Ultra update is planned for 2023.
Taiwanese research firm TrendForce today announced that microLED technology could enable Apple to deliver future products with “groundbreaking product innovations,” ranging from foldable and rollable iPhone models to fully transparent AR glasses.
Production costs for microLED displays are currently high, so Apple’s transition to the technology will likely take many years to complete.
In the meantime, Apple is still completing the transition to OLED screens in its product line. The first Apple device with an OLED screen was the Apple Watch in 2015, while the iPhone started switching to OLED in 2017. Rumors suggest that the first MacBook Air and iPad Pro models with OLED screens will be released in 2024.
