The Apple Watch Ultra is Apple’s best smartwatch to date. It has the largest screen and a more durable design than any previous Apple Watch model. It has a number of features designed to meet the needs of athletes and those who spend a lot of time in harsh environments.
As a result, unlike other Apple Watch models, this product may not require an annual upgrade.
The Apple Watch Ultra 2 will be available in 2025
The Apple Watch Ultra 2 may not be released this year. According to the most recent leak, the device will be released in 2025.
This generation may be equipped with Apple‘s most advanced display, a more difficult-to-manufacture microLED panel. It’s possible that perfecting that screen technology will delay the release of the Apple Watch Ultra until 2023 or 2024. The screen may also be the reason it is more expensive than the first generation.
What is the price of the Apple Watch Ultra 2?
The Apple Watch Ultra is Apple’s most expensive model to date, costing $799 in the United States. For that price, you can get a decent iPhone.
If the Apple Watch Ultra 2’s production costs were significantly higher, Apple would undoubtedly pass those costs on to customers. DSCC analysts wrote a report on the next-generation watch’s microLED panel, claiming that it will be significantly more expensive.
Apple’s microLED panels for the Apple Watch Ultra 2 are said to be five times more expensive than the LTPO OLED panels used in the current Apple Watch Ultra. According to DSCC analysis, Apple can sell the Apple Watch Ultra 2 for a higher price of $799 USD.
The Apple Watch Ultra 2 has a microLED display
MicroLED panels will not be used in iPhones anytime soon, according to Apple. Apple has been working on this new display technology for years, according to recent leaks. DSCC anticipates that LG will manufacture the Apple Watch Ultra 2 display for Apple.
MicroLED displays will be more energy efficient and brighter. They also have a wider viewing angle than OLEDs. The microLED panel on the Apple Watch Ultra 2 will be slightly larger than the current OLED display. According to the predictions, this screen will be 2.1 inches in size and have a resolution of 325 PPI. The screen on the current model is 1.9 inches.
LG Display is said to be constructing a MicroLED production line for the Apple Watch Ultra 2. However, it will not be operational until the second half of 2024. This is also why the Apple Watch Ultra 2 will be available in 2025.
None of this is official, and Apple will never confirm specifics about rumored products or technologies. The only certainty about the Apple Watch Ultra 2 is that it will not be released this year if it uses a microLED display.
