“This year’s second-generation Apple Watch will feature improved internal components, but its external design will be largely unchanged from the first-generation model, according to well-connected insider Ming-Chi Kuo,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.

“Kuo claims that the 2016 Apple Watch will feature ‘spec improvements with limited changes to form factor design,'” Hughes reports. “Those expecting a new look for the Apple Watch, such as a thinner profile, will have to wait until the company’s anticipated 2017 upgrade, he said. This year’s model is expected to be much like the iPhone tick-tock upgrade schedule, with an ‘s’ update focusing on the internal components rather than the external design.”

“Kuo, however, did not share any further details on what he believes the improved internal components of a second-generation watch might be,” Hughes reports. “Also unknown is when the next Apple Watch might launch. Incorrect predictions had pegged it for a March launch, while others forecast a June launch that might coincide with Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference. It’s also possible the company could showcase an ‘Apple Watch 2’ alongside the anticipated “iPhone 7,” which is expected to be unveiled this September.”
