According to recent reports, Apple is all set to launch its successor to the Apple Watch Ultra, aptly named the Apple Watch Ultra 2.

The big news? Apple plans on incorporating 3D-printed components into its manufacturing process.

Launched just last year, the original Apple Watch Ultra quickly became a fan favorite in Apple’s smartwatch lineup. Its rugged design, extended battery life, and improved display set it apart from its predecessors.

Despite a hefty price tag, the Apple Watch Ultra was a hit among Apple enthusiasts – particularly those who love outdoor activities.

Trusted Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo revealed that “Apple is actively adopting 3D printing technology. It’s expected that some titanium mechanical parts of the new Apple Watch Ultra releasing in late 2023 will be made using this technology.”

Kuo didn’t specify which watch parts would be manufactured using a 3D printer. However, he did mention that these parts would still undergo CNC processing for back-end processes.

This new approach could significantly reduce both time and production costs for the upcoming Apple Watch Ultra 2.

Kuo also hinted at an upcoming Apple Watch, slated for release in late 2023 alongside iPhone 15 and the Apple Watch Series 9.

After extensive beta testing, we expect WatcOS 10 to launch with these new devices. Expect some exciting new features, including changes to the interface, a smart stack widgets feature, an updated Control Center activation method, and even a hiking workout option.

When the Apple Watch Ultra 2 is released, we can expect the price to go down. But we are unsure if Apple will use the same pricing strategy for newer models. Given the improvements, the price might be higher.
