The Apple Watch has been an enormous success for the business, effectively locking up the wearables market at the outset. We’re eager to see what Apple will do with the following iteration of its digital watch now that 2023 is well underway.
Here are some potential updates for the 2023 models of the new Apple Watch Series 9, rumours, stories and predictions and Apple Watch Ultra, which the company delivers every fall.
When Will Apple Watch 9 be Available in the Market?
Apple’s most recent variants have traditionally debuted in the second or third week of September, frequently concurrently with the release of new iPhones. Below you can see the release date of Apple products for the last six years:
- Apple Watch Series 3: September 12, 2017
- Apple Watch Series 4: September 12, 2018
- Apple Watch Series 5: September 10, 2019
- Apple Watch Series 6: September 15, 2020
- Apple Watch Series 7: September 14, 2021
- Apple Watch Series 8: September 7, 2022
We anticipate the Apple Watch Series 9 to be introduced during an Apple event in September 2023 because it appears extremely improbable that Apple will alter the cadence this year. The ceremony will take place on September 12 or 13 and the new Watch will go on sale on September 22.
What Will be the Price of Apple Watch 9?
Once again, Apple’s pricing policy for the Apple Watch for US customers has been highly stable. However, most price rises were born by European nations in 2022. As a result, the base model increased by £50 in the UK:
- Apple Watch Series 4: $399/£399
- Apple Watch Series 5: $399/£399
- Apple Watch Series 6: $399/£379
- Apple Watch Series 7: $399/£369
- Apple Watch Series 8: $399/£419
Despite a price increase in Europe, we anticipate the Series 9 will cost about the same as the Apple Watch Series 8 if it succeeds. So, it should cost roughly $399 or £419 instead. We don’t anticipate the price of the Apple Watch Ultra to change for the second iteration ($799/£849).

What Will Be the Features of the Apple Watch 9?
There won’t be a significant improvement over the 2022 models with the Apple Watch Series 9. The Apple Watch Series 9 changes will be anything but significant according to a tweet from Mark Gurman in April 2023.
I believe the new watchOS should be a fairly extensive upgrade — with notable changes to the user interface — unlike iOS 17. It’s important for watchOS to have a big year given that the Apple Watch hardware updates will be anything but major. The device is poised for a more… https://t.co/cXFOrLkawE

However, even without significant updates, the Apple Watch Series 9 might still gain from a number of potential new features.
There won’t be any design modifications for the Apple Watch Series 9; however, there might be some for the Apple Watch Ultra. The screen size of the Apple Watch Ultra may vary in the future. The Ultra screen size may grow from 1.9 inches to 2.1 inches as a result of thinner bezels.
A new dark titanium hue for the Apple Watch Ultra which was initially intended for the first-generation model would be introduced. The Apple Watch Ultra is rumoured to weigh less than the current model in July 2023, which might signal a thinner or smaller casing. It’s unknown if the Series 9 watches will also be reduced in weight.
The production of the 2023 watch family using 3D-printed components is another potential shift. Apple would use 3D printing technology for some of the titanium mechanical parts of the upcoming Apple Watch Ultra. It’s unclear whether this is only for the Ultra or if some Series 9 components will also use this.
Apple has been working on a non-invasive method to check blood glucose levels without additional equipment for years. A covert Apple team has accomplished numerous “major milestones” and the feature is currently at the proof of concept level.
Although it might still be a few years away, it will unlikely appear in this year’s watch. A bioimpedance sensor and an electrodermal activity sensor for detecting stress levels and body composition are further potential sensors.
Apple unveiled the brand-new Apple Watch Ultra with a bewildering selection of functions and components last year. The newest Apple Watch model had the Action button and a more robust design, flat edges and a slightly larger display.
The Action button adjacent to the Digital Crown on the opposite side would comfortably fit on the Apple Watch Series 9. It is possible to program the Ultra to perform specific actions such as starting a stopwatch, an exercise or a flashlight. This feature would be a significant improvement over the current Apple Watch model.
