- A new Apple Watch patent has been granted to Apple.
- It reveals a potentially huge redesign featuring a wrap-around display.
A new Apple Watch patent has been uncovered that points to a future design overhaul featuring a wrap-around LED display.
Whilst that doesn't sound very exciting, images reveal the patent includes iterations for a new type of Apple Watch with a much more ergonomic design and a flexible display:
The patent also points to an Apple Watch without a bezel, or indeed a digital crown. Just a patent at this, stage, the new design may never see the light of day, and if it does it is likely years away. Right now, the best Apple Watch you can buy is the Apple Watch Series 6.
