64-bit processor and 1 GB of RAM, the union minimum.

Much like iOS 16 and iPadOS 16, the major new iteration of watchOS, at number 9, was shown off at the WWDC 2022 conference . The final version of the software will arrive after the summer, along with a new generation of apple watches.

As we have seen in previous articles about iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 , some iPhones and iPads will not be able to take advantage of future updates to their respective software. Let’s see what the situation is on the Apple Watch side.

Which Apple Watch compatible watchOS 9?

Here is the official list of Apple Watches supporting watchOS 9:

  • Apple Watch Series SE
  • Apple Watch Series 4
  • Apple Watch Series 5
  • Apple Watch Series 6
  • Apple Watch Series 7

First of all, you should know that all the watches that supported watchOS 7 have supported watchOS 8. The bundle includes the Apple Watch 3 (2017) and all Apple Watches released since. With watchOS 9, Apple is moving away from  the Apple Watch Series 3 . It has already reached its 5th year of update support. Also, it is powered by a 32-bit S3 processor . It is therefore the last watch not to integrate a 64-bit chip. And its RAM is 768 MB, when more recent models have 1 GB of RAM. The Apple Watch Series 3  in any case stops at watchOS 8 .

If you own a Series 4 or newer watch, you will certainly be safe until next year, at least.

The watchOS 9 software not running on Apple Watch Series 3, is this an argument important enough for you to buy a newer model?
