New Apple Watch with microLED display expected in 2025

Display analyst Ross Young claims that the Cupertino tech giant will debut the first-generation Apple Watch with a microLED display that will go into mass production at the end of 2024 for the launch in spring 2025.

Currently, all Apple Watch models ship with flexible OLED displays. Although the micro-LED is self-luminous like OLED, it delivers higher brightness, dynamic range, and wider color gamut, all the while achieving a faster update rate, wider viewing angle, and lower power consumption. Therefore, the tech company is working on upgrading its Apple Watch lineup with new display tech.

In 2020, it was reported that Apple was planning to invest $330 million in a new Taiwanese factory at Hsinchu Science Park to manufacture microLED and mini-LED displays for its future products.

Apple Watch with microLED display coming in 2024 or 2025

Ross shared the information on the upcoming Apple Watch tech with his super-follow fans on Twitter. He said that the company aims to switch to microLED screens in spring 2025.

The new report corroborated claims made by analyst Jeff Pu that the company will upgrade the display tech in its smartwatch lineup but refutes in launch time. Pu said that the new Apple Watch Ultra with a microLED display will debut in 2024, along with the cheaper “AirPods Lite”.

The tech company has historically released new Apple Watch models in the fall (September), along with new iPhone and other products. Ross is suggesting that the company will change its timeline in the coming years.
