< Apple Watch Series 5 Apple Watch Series 6 >
Besides a bunch of iPhone 12 models, new iPads and maybe even a fresh AirPods model, Apple is gearing up to announce a brand new Apple Watch Series 6 at the same October event, and an alleged X-ray of the wearable has now leaked out. Wait, what?
That's right, just how iFixit partnered with the guys from the Creative Electron to bring us the x-rays of the Apple Watch Series 5 in the form of wallpapers, now someone took the Series 6 under the electrons, and gave it for Mr White to leak out.
While not a very prolific tipster, Mr White's Apple device leaks have been spot on so far, albeit on the parts side, indicating that he is somehow connected to Apple's supply and assembly chain beyond the Great Wall.
Apple Watch 5 vs Apple Watch 6 specs and design differences
