Several reports have come up over the past few weeks claiming that a new Apple Watch is going to be released this March. It’s all speculation at this point since Apple hasn’t confirmed anything about its smartwatch plans as yet. There’s a new report now which claims that the release of a truly new Apple Watch has actually been pushed back and that the company might release a slightly refreshed version of the smartwatch this March.
TechCrunch reports that it’s unlikely a major hardware refresh of the Apple Watch might be announced in the next couple of months, adding that a “Watch 2.0” is not on the cards for March. If the company does conduct an event in March it might announce new accessories and design partnerships for the Apple Watch.
It’s also said that a minor hardware revision of the Apple Watch might be shipped this March, it may include only a FaceTime camera and nothing else. It won’t be considered as a truly new Apple Watch with major design changes and new hardware functions, and it’s still not clear when Apple might unveil a brand new model of its first smartwatch.
As per the report, Apple is planning something for March so there might be an event, some believe it’s going to be for the new cheaper iPhone we’ve been hearing about. Even if the event is for a new iPhone there’s nothing stopping Apple from launching a slightly revised Apple Watch at that event.
