Apple reportedly considered offering the original Apple Watch Ultra in a dark color, and may now introduce it as an option for the expected second generation device.
But if the weight is going to be lighter, the color may be darker. According to Mark Gurman's Power On newsletter, it's an option that was previously considered and rejected.
Reportedly, the reason for Apple deciding not to produce a dark titanium edition of the original Apple Watch Ultra was solely aesthetic and designers just didn't like it. Gurman says that the darker color could still arrive with the 2023 edition, however.
It's not clear whether the design would in some way be different to the prototype, however, or it's just that the designers have grown accustomed to it.
What the Apple Watch Ultra is definitely not expected to feature, though, is a micro LED screen, as reports say that option has had to be delayed until 2026.
