Apple wins the patent for round design.
It looks like Apple is looking to start making round-faced Apple Watches soon judging by the recent news of a patent win by the company. A U.S. Patent 9965995 filing mentioned an ‘electronic device having curved edges’, which may point to a new Apple Watch that will support a circular design.
While it’s not entirely sure that Apple would indeed be making a rounded Apple Watch, there’s still a good chance that they might introduce it in future. If you remember, Android smartwatches favored more for users because some opted for a more circular shape while the Apple Watch stuck with a more rectangular one.
If this is true then this will the first time in three years that the Apple Watch will go a major redesign – though the approval of this patent will mean that that won’t happen in the next few years.
