Apple Watch Ultra 3 Could Feature microLED Display
Apple’s new Apple Watch Ultra 2 isn’t all that different from the Apple Watch Ultra that it replaces in the lineup. That’ll change with Apple thought to be ready to add microLED technology in a future release.
That’s according to a new report by a leaker account known as Instant Digital which claims that the next big upgrade to the Apple Watch Ultra will be the addition of a new microLED display.
However, that change isn’t expected to happen next year which means we might be waiting a little while for it to happen.
Apple has already been rumored to be working on microLED technology for various products. It’ll bring with it improved colors, better viewing angles, and more brightness once it does finally arrive and it could be ready-made for use on a high-end Apple Watch. As MacRumors points out, this isn’t the first time that we’ve heard rumors of microLED use, either.
Apple’s plan to bring a microLED display to the Apple Watch Ultra is very widely corroborated, starting with a report from display analyst Ross Young in January. TrendForce claims that Apple’s first microLED display will launch on a new Apple Watch Ultra model in 2026, due to supply chain adjustments, but some earlier reports placed the device’s launch in 2025.
It’s also thought that the change to microLED technology will see the Apple Watch Ultra’s display increase in size, too.
The new Apple Watch Ultra 2 is on sale right now and while it isn’t that different from the old one, it’s a great watch for people who don’t own an Apple Watch currently.
