New Apple Watch Ultra To Be Lighter, May Be A Part Of Digital Connexion
The upcoming Apple Watch Ultra 2, which is rumored to have a lighter design compared to the current version.
The current Apple Watch Ultra is quite heavy, almost twice as heavy as the lightest Apple Watch Series 8 model.
Apple plans to address this issue by using 3D printing technology to make some of the mechanical parts of the Ultra 2.
The use of 3D printing can potentially reduce the weight of the watch by replacing certain titanium parts with 3D-printed alternatives. The specific details about the extent of the weight reduction haven’t been provided yet.
The new Apple Watch Ultra 2 is expected to be released in the second half of 2023, possibly around the time of Apple’s September event, where they might also unveil the iPhone 15.
The Ultra 2 will be part of a joint venture called “Digital Connexion,” which includes Brookfield Infrastructure, Reliance Industries, and Digital Realty.
With the increasing demand for digital services and access to the internet, data centers in India are also expected to grow rapidly.
Reliance Industries has announced its plan to invest in data centers in India, and the upcoming Apple Watch Ultra 2 might be part of that venture.
The lighter design of the Ultra 2 is likely to make it more comfortable for users to wear on their wrists, and the use of 3D printing technology is also expected to improve production efficiency and reduce costs.
