According to information consulted by analyst Ross Young, Apple will launch a new version of its Apple Watch Ultra equipped with a microLED screen, within two years.

2025 would be the year of a first transition to microLED technology for Apple. True to his previous estimates, Ross Young persists and signs: the Cupertino giant will launch an Apple Watch Ultra with a microLED screen within two years. An estimate maintained by the analyst specializing in display issues after consulting new information this time from Osram, one of Apple’s suppliers. At an industrial level, the latter seems to confirm the calendar established a few months ago by Young around the transition from Apple Watch Ultra to microLED screen technology.

More specifically, Osram explains in its balance sheet for the 4th quarter of 2022 that it will begin to declare its income from the production of components for the microLED in 2025. A tangible clue, suggesting the start of full-scale production for at least one big customer: Apple, Ross Young believes.

Apple Watch Ultra microLED: towards an even bigger watch?

As MacRumors reminds us, Ross Young is far from alone in mentioning the appearance of a microLED Apple Watch Ultra in the medium term. Analyst Jeff Pu, for example, supported this edge but predicted a 2024 launch. A niche that Ross Young has bellicosely contradicted for several months. The interested party even believes that we should not expect to see this technology arrive at Apple’s high-end touch before the spring of 2025.

In detail, this new Apple Watch Ultra microLED would, however, be slightly larger than the version released last September: 2.1 inches, compared to the current 1.92 inches.

As a reminder, microLED technology is based, unlike miniLED, on millions of microscopic LEDs, each of which forms a pixel capable of emitting its own light. Therefore, it offers many advantages (more faithful colors, abysmal contrast, better HDR, wider viewing angles, excellent responsiveness and low latency), and in theory it would allow OLED technology to be outperformed on several points (marking risks). .brand with fire» practically nil, better luminosity and better energy efficiency, in particular).
