Watch 10

The Apple Watch was also going to have its space in the presentation of the WWDC23. Without a doubt, all the rumors around widgets and the expected design change in watchOS came to life and appeared in the new operating system: watchOS 10. On top of that, new faces, redesigned native apps, and new health-focused features were included right on the watch.

This is the key point to define the compatibilities of the new watchOS 10. Apple says watchOS 10 will be compatible with all the watches that were already with watchOS 9, which are the following:

  • Apple Watch Series 4
  • Apple Watch Series 5
  • Apple Watch SE (all models)
  • Apple Watch Series 6
  • Apple Watch Series 7
  • Apple Watch Series 8
  • apple watch ultra

In addition, Apple warns that although the compatibility is there, Not all watchOS 10 features will come to all watches Not surprisingly, considering that the processors have changed and are not the same, as are the power demands of the different features of watchOS 10.
