Apple is rumored to introduce significant innovations in the Watch Series 10. According to Bloomberg, the new model will feature a larger display and a thinner chassis. Additionally, a cost-effective plastic Watch SE is reportedly in the works.

Despite these upgrades, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman notes that new health monitoring features may face delays. Fast performance is assured by a new chip, but this development highlights potential roadblocks for health technology integration.

The Series 10 is set to revolutionize design and efficiency, yet fans may need to temper expectations about immediate advancements in health functionalities. Concurrently, Apple is testing a next-gen plastic Watch SE to broaden its market reach.

The upcoming iOS 18 will integrate ChatGPT into Siri, expanding its capabilities. Apple has partnered with OpenAI for this feature, despite most new Siri functionalities being developed in-house.

While Apple Intelligence will launch with iOS 18 this fall, the big Siri upgrade won’t be available until spring 2024, leaving many eagerly awaiting its release.
