This year, the Apple Watch Ultra 2 is expected to offer a new color variant - titanium black, elevating its allure as the 'Batman' in contrast to the 'Barbie' pink purportedly launching with the Apple Watch Series 9. It appears that the Ultra is making a striking comeback in black.
This update has been hinted at by the respected tech insider, ShrimpApplePro, suggesting that the previously speculated, but allegedly scrapped, titanium black casing is indeed back in the lineup. Users would be able to choose between the original titanium finish and the newly introduced darker variant.
The watch could not possibly be more black; it's pitch black to the core.
The recent leak aligns with earlier reports from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, who claimed that Apple tested a darker titanium casing for the original Apple Watch Ultra but chose not to launch it. However, this wouldn't mark the first time Apple experimented with a black titanium finish; the Apple Watch Series 7 had a similar but beautifully named 'Space Black' variant.
Alongside the case variation, we anticipate the forthcoming Apple Watch Ultra, known for being one of the most exceptional smartwatches on the market, to feature a new processor - the S9. This processor, slated to also power the Apple Watch Series 9, is rumoured to focus on speed, a significant improvement from its predecessors, which were more energy-efficient than performative.
Gurman's reports also suggest that the processor is based on the A15 Bionic chip that debuted with the iPhone 13. Pair this with the significant alterations to watchOS 10, and it's clear that the 2023 Apple Watches will mark a considerable evolution from the Apple Watch Series 8.
We anticipate the debut of both the Apple Watch Ultra 2 and the Apple Watch Series 9 at a September event, adhering to the consistent release schedule Apple has maintained for its watches. The September launch is conveniently timed for the holiday shopping spree. As of now, the pricing for the new releases remains uncertain - whether they'll maintain their existing price range or observe an increase is anyone's guess, but we're holding out hope for the former.
