Munster predicts minor changes for next generation Apple Watch

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster has predicted that the Apple Watch hardware might be changed slightly, but that the new version will not represent a big enough change for it to be called the Apple Watch 2.

“Expect more of an “S” version with similar design, upgraded components including processor, battery, new band styles,” said Munster. “Unlikely to have a wireless radio, which would allow standalone (i.e. decoupled from iPhone),” he went on.

However Munster’s predictions should be taken with a pinch of salt as he has been wrong in the past. He found fame after predicting the release of the next generation Apple TV from 2011 until its eventual launch in late 2015.

Apple Watch 2 rumor mill picks up momentum ahead of March 15 event

Other experts have weighed in with their predictions for the next generation Apple Watch, and it’s become a hot topic. Mark Gurman has also predicted that the wearable will get new bands and a software update this year, so Munster might not be too far off the mark this time around.

At this stage no one outside of Apple knows for sure what we will be shown on March 15, and the mystery makes it all the more exciting.

Buzzfeed cites sources who claim that the event will be smaller than previous product launches. In September last year Apple released the iPhone 6s, Apple TV and iPad Pro at a large event, but this time around the sources say that the event will be held at Apple’s Town Hall in Cupertino, which the company prefers for smaller events.

Other rumors state that Apple has delayed the release of the Apple Watch 2 until September this year, so we will have to wait and see what happens in March.
