The Apple Watch has been a big success for the company and has pretty much cornered the market for wearables on the first try. We can’t wait to see what Apple does with the next version of its digital watch, which is already well into the year 2023. So, here are all the theories and news we’ve heard about the Apple Watch Series 9 and what we think it will be like.
Apple Watch Series 9 Release Date
Invites have been sent out, so the Apple Event will happen on September 12. We think that Apple will release the Apple Watch 9 at the event. Something x ( A Twitter page that covers tech news) Has also posted about the Apple Watch series 9 and the Apple Event.

If the Apple Watch follows the same trend as the iPhone 15, pre-orders could start on September 15 and sales could start on September 22.
It’s still not clear if the Apple Watch Series 9 will come out at the same time as other smartwatches. We’ve heard stories about the Apple Watch Ultra 2, but most people think it won’t come out until 2024.
Price Talk About The Apple Watch Series 9
We think that the Apple Watch Series 9 will cost the same as the Apple Watch Series 8, at least until we hear something to the contrary. The GPS-only 41-millimeter model of the current-generation Apple Watch starts at $399. The price for the version with GPS and cell service is $499. For cellular service, the 45-millimeter size starts at $429 and goes up to $529.
There are now two more Apple Watch models, the Apple Watch Ultra, which costs $799, and the Apple Watch SE (2022), which starts at $249. If Apple doesn’t announce any other smartwatches besides the Series 9, we expect the Ultra and SE to stay in the range for at least another year.
Apple Watch Series 9 Specs And Battery Life
Rumors about the Apple Watch Series 9’s specifications are starting to circulate, and they bode well for battery life expectations. According to Bloomburg’s Mark Gurman and leaker Instant Digital, the Apple Watch 9 will use the iPhone 13’s A15 chip. This would not only improve performance but would also increase battery life due to efficiency advantages from the transition to a 5nm manufacturing process.
But we’re not hearing much else. It would be fantastic if the new Watch borrowed the iPhone 14’s Emergency SOS via satellite capability, for example. It could potentially get a new sensor on the inside, either for health or mobility. The most recent sensor innovation is the Apple Watch Series 8 skin temperature sensor, although there is undoubtedly demand for blood glucose and blood pressure monitoring.
In terms of battery life, we know better than to expect an Apple Watch to last as long as a Fitbit or Garmin watch. While the new Apple Watch’s low power mode helps with endurance, 18 hours is still the standard estimate.
Series 9 Apple Watch: WatchOS 10
One thing is certain about the Apple Watch Series 9: it will come with watchOS 10. This means a few new watch faces—possibly a pair exclusive to the next model—as well as a new feature or two.
Following WWDC on June 5, we were given a first peek at a number of new features and apps coming to the Apple Watch software, including a new way to navigate and updated apps across watchOS 10. There will be new Clocks and Watch faces to pick from, as well as new apps and improvements to existing apps, such as the Compass and Maps app, and new Health features. In our separate story, we discuss watchOS 10.
WatchOS 10 is expected to be available for download around September 8. It will be compatible with Apple Watch Series 4 and later.

Rumors About The Apple Watch Series 9 design
There haven’t been any Apple Watch Series 9 design rumors, but we’re not certain the design will alter significantly. The Apple Watch Series 4, 5, and 6 all feature nearly identical designs. So, assuming Apple follows a similar pattern, the Apple Watch Series 9 should resemble the last two Apple Watch models.
The Apple Watch Series 7 brought a larger and brighter display with narrower bezels, but aside from color selections, there is no discernible design difference between the Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Series 7. Having said that, it’s probable that the Apple Watch Series 9 will be available in limited edition hues. Who can say? It could possibly arrive in a size different than the current 41mm and 45mm possibilities.
We feel that now that the Apple Watch Ultra is available, the long-rumored flat-edged redesign of the Apple Watch is less plausible. When comparing the Apple timepiece Series 8 vs. Apple Watch Ultra, the Ultra is a significantly more substantial timepiece.
Leaking ShrimpApple Pro backed this hypothesis, noting that the Apple Watch Series 9 design isn’t noticeably different from the Apple Watch 8. They further claim that it will be available in eight different hues. According to reports, the aluminum model will be available in Midnight (black), Starlight (cream), Product Red, silver, and pink. Gold, graphite (dark gray), and silver variants are available in the Stainless Steel form.
We expect the same selection of straps and bands to be available with the Apple Watch 9, but Apple may have developed a new cloth strap with a buckle to give users instead.
