- Apple Watch Series 9 to feature new S9 chip based on A15 SoC used in iPhone 13.
- Previous models had S8, S7, and S6 chips.
- watchOS 10 may be announced at WWDC23, potential reveal of S9 chip.
Last year Apple launched its watch series 8, which was powered by an S8 chip, similar to what they did earlier. Apple powered its watch series 7 with an S7 chip and its watch series 6 with an S6 chip. According to Mark Guman from Bloomberg, Apple is all set to launch its watch series 9, which will be powered by a new chipset instead of a revamped version of the previous chipset.
The S9 chip used in the watch series 9 will be powered by Apple’s A15 SoC which was used in the Apple iPhone 13 series. Although it is unclear how different the S9 chip would be from A15, we can anticipate that it will bring efficiency and performance enhancement.
According to Bloomberg's Apple "beat writer" Mark Gurman, the Apple Watch Series 9 will be powered by the S9 chip which will be based on the A15 Bionic. https://t.co/bDpoUn8IO1— PhoneArena (@PhoneArena) May 9, 2023
