Ahead of the launch of the Apple Watch Series 8, a new rumor suggests the following product in the Apple Watch lineup will change things up regarding colors and materials. Most of these changes would go to the baseline model, not the higher-end version.
On Friday, the Apple leaker and Twitter user @ShrimpApplePro stated that Apple Watch Series 8 will feature relatively the same design as the previous Series 7 last year, with most changes noticed in the colors and materials.
The Aluminum Apple Watch Series 8 will drop its Blue and Green color options and replace them with Silver. At the same time, Midnight, Starlight, and PRODUCT (RED) will stay in the lineup.
Regarding Stainless Steel, the Gold color option is eliminated, leaving Graphite and Silver as the only colors for the more premium material look. Titanium, on the other hand, will not be featured on the baseline model, leaving it with only Aluminum and Stainless Steel.
“Design: sadly it’s staying the same as the series 7 with no design improvement. The base now doesn’t have titanium anymore. Aluminum: midnight, starlight, product red, silver Stainless steel: silver and graphite The source doesn’t notice any new sensors visually “
The reason for the drop in Titanium could be that Apple is saving it for the higher-end Apple Watch Pro model as it will be a sport-focused watch and Titanium will fit in this product category. This version of the watch will feature a new design, a larger display, a new body temperature sensor, and a low-power mode which will boost the battery life of the watch to make it a multi-day watch.
Finally, @ShrimpApplePro notes that mass production of the next Apple Watch lineup will begin in “late August” which makes sense as the watches are presumably announced and launched in September.
