Apple Watch Series 6 is thinner, has larger battery & more

The news: The Apple Watch Series 6 is a very different watch than the Series 5, at least internally, according to a teardown by iFixit.

  • The battery received a “3.5% increase for the 44mm battery, and an even bigger 8.5% increase for the 40mm”
  • Force Touch has been removed, contributing the the Series 6 being 3.16% thinner
  • A larger Taptic Engine is present inside the new watches, too

Our take: It’s always fascinating to learn what really changed on the inside of some new products. Super cool to see that there is a physically larger battery on the inside!
