Quick Answer: There’s no confirmed data yet, but the Apple Watch is expected to come out sometime in September, usually the second week of the month.

Much like its flagship iPhones, Apple tends to release a new Apple Watch model every year. The company has released a new model every year since 2015 when the original Watch came out.

2024 seems to be no different, and it’s safe to assume that Apple will stick to its usual schedule with the next wearable.

After all, the company launched the Apple Watch Ultra last year. We’ll surely see some of the new features found in that model added to the Series 9 in 2024.

Apple Watch Series 9 release date

Short answer: The Apple Watch Series 9 was announced on September 12, 2023, and it became available in stores starting on September 22, 2023

Every single Apple Watch so far has been announced in September, except for the original, which saw its release in April 2015.

Apple has released the wearable alongside that year’s iPhone range, except for 2020, when the iPhone wasn’t announced until the month after.

As to when in September, we have a couple of reference dates to go by. Apple almost always has its iPhone and Apple Watch event on the second Tuesday of September. Sometimes, it has been on the second Wednesday.

One thing to note is that while Apple has been fairly consistent with their release schedule, delays are always possible. And even after the announcement, it might be a week or more before the new model is available for order. But as long as there aren’t any major supply issues, we can anticipate that the launch will occur around the same time as previous years.

So, if we had to put all the chips on the table, we would put our bet on the second week of September. But who knows, that could change, and it’s ultimately Apple’s decision.

Of course, this Series 10 release date may not be accurate. Delays are always possible, and even if the wearable is announced, we might have to wait to be able to order one.

Last year, there was a little over a week gap between the announcement and release. As long as there aren’t any supply issues, we expect about the same time between the announcement and the official release date.

What to expect from the Apple Watch Series 10

The upcoming Apple Watch Series 10 is expected to bring even more enhancements and features that take full advantage of the device’s capabilities.

Apple’s trend of introducing new features with every update gives us a hint of what to expect. With the Series 9, we saw brighter displays, easier ways to find misplaced iPhones, and redesigned apps that fully utilize the screen.

WatchOS 10 even brought in enhanced cycling metrics, improved hiking features, and tools for mental health.

When does the new Apple Watch come out?

As for the Series 10, we can likely look forward to further advancements in these areas, along with the introduction of new functionalities.
