Latest version of iOS reveals new Apple Watch models incoming
The latest developer version of iOS, iOS 12 beta 2, contains references to four Apple Watch models that we have never seen before and this clearly indicates that Apple is getting ready to launch the new models of its wearable in the not so distant future. The finding comes from 9to5Mac's Guilherme Rambo, a developer that has given us sneak peeks at leaked details about future devices coming from Apple's own source code in the past.

The new models mentioned in iOS 12 beta 2 are Watch4,1, Watch4,2, Watch4,3 and Watch4,4. These are identifiers for a new generation of Apple Watch devices and this becomes clear when you look at the current Watch3,1 through Watch3,4 identifiers. Additionally, this beta contains references to model numbers for the new devices, including the model numbers MTUD2, MTUK2, MTX92 and others.

Apple is expected to unveil its new generation of Apple Watches at its massive September event when it also announces its new iPhones. This year, we expect to see three new iPhones, all featuring the edge-to-edge notch screen first introduced with the iPhone X. Rumors suggest that there will be a model with an LCD screen and a more affordable price, a successor the current X, as well as a new larger-screen super premium model with an even higher price and possibly some advanced new camera features. As to the Apple Watch, the new models this year are expected to retain the same physical size, but have smaller bezels and a 15% larger display in the same body.

Why? It’s outsold by any other smart watch, Samsung reigns supreme in the wearables market. Wake me up when they release anything that sells as good as the Samsung device they’re copying.

My series one is due for an upgrade(since it won't be getting anymore OS updates after WatchOS 5), but I'll probably end up sticking with it a bit longer if the next Apple Watch isn't round.

Chillin with my Series 3 cellular. Works great, and provides a great experience. Only thing I have to do, is position it on my wrist a certain way, since I’m fully sleeved.
