This is the Apple Watch Series 4

By reviews / 31. August 2018

Hot on the heels of the iPhone XS leak, the first image of the Apple Watch Series 4 appears to have come to light. The image, again published by 9to5Mac, shows the fourth generation smartwatch Apple is likely to launch during the September 12 event.

As you can see above, the Apple Watch Series 4 looks to have a much larger edge-to-edge display, which is capable of showcasing more information than we’ve ever seen on the face of an Apple Watch.

The leaked image shows a total of eight complications within and around an analogue clock face. There’s a weather wedge showing highs and lows for the day, a countdown timer, live progress on Activity rings and Apple Music.

There’s a Calendar app widget along with a time, location and description of the next planned event. The watchface also shows the UVI rating for the day, adjacent from a sunset complication. You can get a closer look below.

This suggests that Apple has more watch faces in mind, designed to make use of the extra screen real estate. Rumours in recent months have suggested Apple is planning to make the displays around 15% larger than the previous modelsReports in July suggested the current 38mm and 42mm (1.32-inch and 1.5-inch) inch screens will be pushed to 1.57-inch and 1.78-inches respectively, but that yet to be confirmed.

As 9to5Mac points out, the other hardware change also appears to be an additional microphone between the Digital Crown and the side button. As for the Crown itself, it appears to be more deeply embedded into the body itself, while the side button also looks a little flatter.

The Apple Watch Series 4 now seems highly likely to be announced on September 12, alongside the new iPhone handsets, at Apple’s annual event. The devices will be powered by watchOS 5 and the iOS 12 updates.
