Six new versions of the Apple Watch are coming, according to regulatory application
The information comes from a listing at the Eurasian Economic Commission, which approves devices that are using encryption, sold in Russia and other countries in the region. The application contains six new model numbers for smart watches made by Apple. The differences between models can be purely aesthetic, like different materials for the body of the watch, or functional, such as LTE capabilities. Currently, Series 3 Apple Watches come in eight different versions, so the variety appears to be reduced.
Another chunk of information, which can be found in the listing, is that all the new models will be running watchOS 5, which is the next version of Apple’s operating system for its smart watches, that’s expected to be released alongside iOS 12 this Fall.
The Apple Watch Series 4 isn’t exactly a secret either, rumors about the new features and upgrades have been circulating for a while. The new line-up will most likely be announced at the same event as the new iPhone models, usually held around the middle of September.
