If you are still using the original Apple Watch Series 1, you might want to consider upgrading soon. The first-generation smartwatch is now obsolete.
Apple has officially confirmed that the Apple Watch Series 1 is now obsolete, according to an internal report obtained by Macrumors. This means that the first-generation smartwatch will no longer receive any software updates or security patches from Apple, which could affect its functionality, compatibility, and security in the long run.
It also means that Apple will not offer any hardware repairs or replacements for the device, even if it is covered by AppleCare+ or warranty. If your Apple Watch Series 1 breaks down or malfunctions, you will have to pay for the repair costs yourself or buy a new one.
The Apple Watch Series 1 was launched in 2016 as the company’s first foray into wearable technology. It featured a dual-core processor, a heart rate sensor, a digital crown, and a Force Touch display.
However, the Apple Watch Series 1 has been left behind by newer models that offer more features, better performance, and longer battery life. It may have been a pioneer in smartwatch technology, but it is now time to say goodbye to it.
The Apple Watch Series 9, which was announced in September 2023, is the latest smartwatch from the company and features a larger and more advanced display, a faster charging system, and a more durable design. ItAppl is available in two sizes: 41mm and 45mm. It comes in aluminum or stainless steel finish and starts at ₱26,490.
