Apple is expected to showcase updated smart watch products at the Time Flies event on Wednesday.
The Watch News is expected to fulfill the more overt allusion to the name of this week’s event, which will also announce updates for the iPad Air.
Usually, Apple brings out a new model of its best-selling iPhone alongside the watch, as it previously did with the iPhone 11 and Apple Watch Series 5 (the two devices are inextricably linked to the watch, which is practically dependent on the phone to function fully ).

The new iPhones are believed to have been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic and there is expected to be more information about this next month.
As for the watch, Apple seems to be improving the health and wellness features of its wearable and could also bring out a stripped-down, cheaper version, like the one done with the iPhone SE.
Bloomberg Earlier this month it was reported that the company was working on two models of watches.
One is expected to replace the current Series 5 watch, while another will replace the Series 3, which has been considered the cheaper version of the smartwatch since its release in 201
The cheaper device is believed to have focused on fitness tracking, which competes with the Fitbit company, which Google recently acquired for $ 2.1 billion ($ 2.88 billion).

Some leaks have also predicted new colors and case materials.
Apple’s vice president of technology Kevin Lynch previously said that new features would be available in WatchOS7 at the company’s global developer conference in June that would indicate improved sleep tracking, a new hand washing monitor and shareable watch faces.
The Series 6 watch is also expected to add blood oxygen monitoring previously used on smartwatches from rival companies like Garmin, Fitbit, and Samsung.
Blood oxygen sensors (also known as SpO2) can let you know when the level of oxygen in your blood drops below a certain level, which can be a symptom of major underlying diseases or disorders, such as sleep apnea.
Apple could also introduce a new biometric locking technology.
Currently, Apple Watch Series 5 uses a six-digit passcode lock when you first put it on your wrist.
You will not have to re-enter the passcode until you remove it.
With the possible inclusion of Touch ID in the power button of the predicted new iPad Air, Apple could also build a tiny fingerprint scanner into the crown of the Apple Watch.
