A new leak regarding Apple Watch Series 10 shows that this wearable might have big battery improvements thanks to Apple’s improved display technology for its smartwatches. According to the Korean outlet The Elec, Apple might apply a new LTPO-TFT technology for the Apple Watch.

This display can lower the power consumption of the current screen available with the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2. Even though the company might have scrapped plans to produce in-house microLED, its OLED focus can still improve the usability of next-gen Apple Watches.

If this Apple Watch Series 10 leak is accurate, this means this technology could also be applied to future iPhone models, as Cupertino usually tests new display features with the Apple Watch and then adds them to the iPhone.

The complex LTPO TFT method will be produced by LG Display and Japan’s JDI. The report says Samsung Display might join the Apple Watch supply chain for next year’s model, as Samsung hasn’t applied the new LTPO OLED technology yet.


Besides that, there are several leaks regarding the Apple Watch Series 10. The most notorious is a big design change expected for this model, making Apple Watch bands no longer retro-compatible. If the rumor is true, this design change will allow thinner Watches while increasing battery life.
