The rumoured upgrades and redesign have hinted it may be a game-changer gadget this time. However, the latest leak may not be pleasing for the Apple fans who were waiting to get the new Apple Watch 8 for its rumoured new design!

    “Sadly it's staying the same as the series 7 with no design improvement. The base now doesn't have titanium anymore,” ShrimpApplePro account tweeted. According to the tipsters, the information is obtained from the final production of Apple Watch 8. The standard watch of the Apple is expected to stay similar to the Apple Watch 7 with no improvements. While this leak did not bring good news for the ones who were eyeing a totally overhauled Apple Watch, but there is something else that may be more exciting.

    Apple Watch 8 expected colours

    The standard version is expected to differ across quite a few parameters. 9to5Mac reported a leak from Earth 616 time traveler's source, which suggests that Apple Watch 8 will come in these colours:

    • Aluminum in starlight, midnight, product red, and silver
    • Stainless steel in silver, graphite, and gold
    • No titanium model in this version

    If this is the final list of colors for the Apple Watch Series 8, then it means there will be no green and blue colors. According to the report, Apple Watch Series 7 users were showing their interest towards a more neutral color last year.

    However, all these updates are based on the leaks and rumours, and the final design and colour options are only expected to be revealed with the launch of the Apple Watch,which is expected to be unveiled during the iPhone 14 launch event in September.
