There is no doubt that the Apple Watch is the smartwatch most popular in the market. Offer an experience premium thanks to features such as watchOS apps, LTE compatibility, its water resistance or its wide range of belts.
Now, let's not fool ourselves: there are aspects that can still be improved. It is true that the Apple Watch Series 5 introduced the function of having the screen always active and an integrated compass, but there are elements that are still missing.
Some of them may arrive with the new generation, which should be launched in 2020. Below we collect all the information, leaks and rumors circulating in the industry about the Apple Watch Series 6.
Launch: When will the Apple Watch Series 6 be released?
For now we have no confirmation, and not even rumors, about when the Apple Watch Series 6 will be put up for sale. Now, considering when it has been in previous years, we can speculate on its release date.
In general terms, Apple usually releases a new Apple Watch coinciding with the arrival of new iPhones. This happens in the event they organize every September, the month in which all Apple Watch have gone on sale except for the first.
Thus, most likely, the Apple Watch Series 6 will be released in early September 2020 along with the rumored iPhone 12. Of course, Apple may surprise us by releasing it another month or even not launching it directly.
Price: How much does the Apple Watch Series 6 cost?
The Apple Watch is available in two box sizes and several different finishes. In addition, there is a long collection of belts to choose from. All this makes the price of smartwatch Apple may vary greatly from one model to another.
The input model of Apple Watch Series 5 It is priced at 449 or 479, depending on whether you choose the 40 mm or 44 mm aluminum case. On the other hand, the Apple Watch with stainless steel case costs from 749.
If you look at the options with a titanium or ceramic case, the price goes off even more. The titanium model has an initial price of 849, while the ceramic model costs a minimum of 1,499.
Over the years, there have been few changes in the price of the Apple Watch, so we consider these figures a good guide to know how much to cost the Apple Watch Series 6 when it goes on sale next 2020.
Design: What will the Apple Watch Series 6 look like?
The design of the Apple Watch has hardly changed since the company introduced the first generation in 2015, except for the introduction of a bezel-free screen with the Apple Watch Series 4 in 2018.
At this point, it is clear that this design is already a classic and it is hard to imagine that the smartwatch Apple present another aspect. Everyone instantly relates it to the Apple Watch and we doubt that Apple decides to change it.
Of course, among the small changes that could be introduced with the sixth generation could be a thinner box thanks to a new MicroLED screen. Apart from this, we bet on the square box and the usual curved angles.
Specifications: What features offer the Apple Watch Series 6?
The Apple Watch Series 5 presented significant improvements in the form of new features. However, it seems that this will not be the case with the Apple Watch Series 6, which will be merely an update of the previous generation.
Improved performance and water resistance
The Apple Watch Series 6 will be able to present improved performance as well as improvements in its water resistance thanks to the use of liquid crystal polymer in the assembly of its circuits. At least that is what Ming-Chi Kuo says, which is often right in his predictions.
So far, all smartwatches Apple have used polyimide in their circuits, but a flexible circuit assembly from LCP will give that boost to the performance we don't see when moving from Series 4 to Series 5.
On the other hand, the improved water resistance will mean that Apple will overcome the current resistance at 50 meters depth. One option may be compatibility for sports such as scuba diving or water skiing, but they are only speculation.
It has long been speculated, but Apple could finally introduce a sleep tracking feature into its smartwatch. Now it can only be done with the help of an external app or buying an accessory.
He 9to5Mac portal Already informed in its day of a functionality referred to as Time in Bed tracking in the source code of iOS 13, which could refer to that sleep tracking function that will also allow you to wake up little by little.
It is not the only publication with information about it. Bloomberg He has also written about the tests Apple will be doing to implement this functionality. In addition, they dared to predict that it would arrive in 2020.
Most likely, sleep tracking will come with the launch of the Apple Watch Series 6 (which we hope will also include a better battery), although Apple may surprise us with an update of software for Series 5 before.
Another reason why we would like the Apple Watch Series 6 to have a better battery is because its OLED screen sucks a lot of energy. This could be solved if it was decided to change it for another in the new generation.
In fact, the Chinese portal Economic Daily News Cites sources from Apple's supply chain and ensures that the Apple Watch Series 6 will have a MicroLED display. This will allow for a longer battery life and a thinner body.
Touch ID embedded in the screen
Another novelty that the Apple Watch Series 6 could bring will be an update in the form of a security system. The Touch ID will arrive directly embedded in the screen unlike the Macs and iPads that also use the fingerprint sensor.
For now, the Apple Watch security system is the four-digit pin that you can type on the screen. He smartwatch be unlocked as long as it detects a beat. Then you can read notifications, make payments contactless, and much more.
Unlocking an Apple Watch is a quick process, but it can be somewhat cumbersome to type on such a small screen. In any case, it is definitely much more cumbersome than using Face ID or Touch ID.
The rumor of the integration of the Touch ID came when a patent was published in November 2019 that suggests that Apple will be working on a new technology to use on a possible sensor embedded under the screen similar to that of other brands.
