2018 Apple Watch models, likely Series 4 is expected to make its official in September alongside new iPhones and iPad Pros this year. Ahead of the launch, Apple seems to have registered six new Watch models with the EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission), as per the report from Wccftech site.
Expectations were already very clear that Apple would launch new Apple Watches next month, and today we have the closest thing to a confirmation that we will get ahead of that official Apple announcement. According to the statement, Apple has filed six new Apple Watch model numbers with EEC, including the list of A1977, A1978, A1975, A1976, A2007, and A2008 – all are confirmed as running watchOS 5.
The watchOS 5.0 was showcased at Apple’s WWDC 2018 conference earlier this year, with a focus on health-features, new watch faces, interactive notifications, etc. For those unfamiliar with the process here, any encrypted device sold in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, or Russia needs to be registered with the EEC. This was provided an insight into which devices Apple is about to announce with the AirPods, some iPad Pros, and the iPhone 7/7 Plus amongst the devices that appeared with the EEC a couple of weeks before they were announced.
That all seems likely to fit the existing beliefs that the Apple Watch Series 4 would be unveiled early next month, and with this latest news, we can admit the fact that is an almost certainly.
Otherwise, Apple Watch 4 is expected to come with a major overhauled design changes. As per the reports suggested by the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple Watch Series 4 will feature 15% larger display in comparison to Series 3. That could also expect longer battery life, improved health monitoring, to come as part of the 2018 Apple Watch refresh. In fact, Kuo estimates that Apple will ship close to 22-24 million units of its Watch Series 4 in 2018.
With September 12th looking most likely to be the date during which Apple will announce its latest wares. And also, alongside the Apple Watch Series 4, the Cupertino-based company is expected to announce new iPhones, new iPad Pros, and possibly new MacBooks of some sort, too.
Another report claims that Apple Watch Series 4 will get rid of the physical buttons, and instead add solid-state buttons, like we saw on the iPhone 7, etc. These buttons will respond to a user’s touch, without one having to physically press the button like on the currently present Apple Watch variants.
Further news on the availability of the much-maligned AirPower charging station is also expected to be shared, alongside the launch of an entry-level MacBook Air, MacBook, Mac Mini, iPads with FaceID, AirPods 2, and Apple Watch Series 4.
