No, the Apple Watch Series 6 will not debut micro-LED display technology


Apple Watch Series 6

According to a tipster, the Apple Watch Series 6 won’t debut the new micro-LED display technology. In fact, it seems to be very similar to the last year’s Apple Watch Series 5. According to the @Lovetodream tipster, “in my dream, the Apple Watch S6 will continue to use the display from JDI”. The tipster all starts his tips by saying “In my dreams”.

There’s no upgrade in the display technology

The tipster has a long story of leaking legit information pertaining to upcoming Apple devices. The tweet is referring to the currently employed OLED panel for the wearable that comes from Japan Display (JDI). JDI had some financial problems lately since it bet high on LCD panels and was a late company to join the OLED party. Of course, Apple still is one of JDI’s strongest partners. The latter still ships some LCD displays for iPhone and iPad models. With the Series 5 watch, the company started to supply 1.57-inch displays for the wearable. According to reports, Apple invested over $200 million in JDI’s restructuring giving its skin in the game.

Apple Watch Series 6

Apparently, the company won’t be switching to the micro-LED game this year. So, the changes in the Apple Watch Series 6 should be internal. First of all, the wearable might debut with the long-awaited native sleep tracking features. Moreover, the company might implement the pulse oximeter feature. It will joint the heart-rate monitor, electrocardiogram, and fall detector features. The new feature will read the oxygen levels in your red blood cells. A normal reading is in the range of 95% to 100% and indicates that your heart is doing its job and is pumping blood throughout your body. A reading of 92% or lower will lift a red flag. This feature is particularly useful in a world plagued by COVID-19. After all, it can help you to monitor the degradation of your body if no other symptoms manifest.
Other rumors indicate that the Apple Watch Series 6 would be adding the Touch ID feature. Apparently, the biometric sensor would be placed on the watch’s digital crown. The new wearable is expected to go official in September at the same time that Apple introduces the 2020 5G iPhone 12 models. Of course, anything can change in the future due to the ongoing pandemic.
