Apple fans looking forward to seeing an upgraded version of the Apple Watch could be in for a treat on September 10, 2019. The Cupertino-based tech titan is expected to announce something related to its next wearable, the Apple Watch 5. According to multiple claims, Apple has already dropped its biggest clue that it is gearing for a new version of its fan-favorite smartwatch.

Several fans recently noticed that Apple has begun selling out on its online store some of key Apple Watch bands. It simply suggests that the stock is running low and the company has no plans of making more. Usually, wearable and watchmakers would not churn out new bands if a refresh is coming.

Based on its practice, Apple usually refreshes the variety of its bands in every new generation of its popular Apple Watch hardware. Interestingly, a substantial number of bands launched in 2019 are now out of stock. Considering that an Apple event is scheduled next Tuesday, it appears that Apple is finally announcing the highly anticipated Apple Watch 5.

This hint aligns with previous reports which revealed that Apple Watch 5 will have a couple of premium finishes. The reports claim that Apple Watch 5 will be available in Titanium and Ceramic variants. Although Apple has previously used ceramic, it did not include in its most recent Apple Watch 4.


But, news of the introduction of the new Titanium model and the return of the costly Ceramic model are rife online through the effort of iHelp BR. The team uncovered the alleged variant in the developer beta of the Apple watchOS 6. The upcoming variants were included in the pairing animations that users see when they connect their Apple Watch to the iPhone.

Other rumors claim that Apple might introduce a blood pressure monitoring feature in Apple Watch 5. This could come very handy after the Cupertino-based tech giant introduced the two-point ECG in Apple Watch 4. Bloomberg earlier reported that Apple Watch 5 will focus on refinements and not really on the cosmetic redesign.

Aside from Apple Watch 5, fans are also looking forward that on September 10, Apple will unveil three new iPhones. According to reports, Apple will announce iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11R. Apple Watchbands and new airpods might also be unveiled during the event.
