Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman says watchOS 10, which will debut at June’s WWDC 2023 event, will be the biggest Apple Watch software update since the first version of the operating system was released in 2015. watchOS 10 will be unveiled alongside iOS 17, iPadOS 17, macOS 14, and tvOS 17 on June 5th. Gurman’s comments came in his weekly newsletter on Sunday.
Gurman said he expects watchOS 10 to be a “major” update with “bigger enhancements,” including an “updated interface.” Gurman did not provide any additional details, so we’ll have to wait until June 5 to discover the exact new features and changes coming in the new Apple Watch operating system.
Gurman expects minor hardware changes for the next Apple Watch models, so watchOS 10 should be a major focus this year.
Apple’s WWDC Keynote address will be held on June 5, and watchOS 10 should be released in beta form to developers soon after the keynote. A public beta will likely be released to testers enrolled in Apple’s free Beta Software Program sometime in July.
