The standard 41mm and 45mm models of the Apple Watch Series 8 will feature the same design as the Apple Watch Series 7, it said Twitter user @ShrimpAppleProwho was the first to reveal that the iPhone 14 Pro models would feature a new pill-and-hole display.


Titanium will also no longer be an option for the standard Apple Watch Series 8 models, according to @ShrimpApplePro, but BloombergMark Gurman reported that a new high-end “extreme sport” version of the Apple Watch Series 8 will have a titanium case, so there would still be a titanium option within the entire Series 8 lineup. The “Extreme” model is also expected to have a slightly larger display compared to the standard Series 8 models.

@ShrimpApplePro said their source isn’t aware of any new sensors on the standard Apple Watch Series 8, which is said to go into mass production this month.

The leaker said color options for the standard Apple Watch Series 8 will include Midnight, Starlight, Silver, and (PRODUCT)RED for aluminum models, and Silver and Graphite for stainless steel models. These would be fewer colors than offered for the Series 7 models, which also come in finishes like blue, green, space black and gold.

The Apple Watch Series 8 models are expected to be announced in September alongside the iPhone 14 series. watchOS 9 is also scheduled for release in September.
