The Apple Watch 9 could be far more powerful than even the Apple Watch Ultra

Apple Watch Series 9 to be powered by a new A15-based chip

Each generation of Apple Watch has a new chipset, just like each generation of iPhone generally does. But in reality these new chipsets have been little more than rebranded versions of old ones in the last few years; while the Apple Watch 8 has an S8 chipset, that uses the same CPU as the S7 and even the S6 back on the Apple Watch 6.

Even the Apple Watch Ultra is stuck with that dated CPU, so it’s about time the Apple Watch line got a true chipset upgrade, and it looks like it might with the Apple Watch 9.
