iHelp BR has discovered assets in the latest watchOS 6 beta that hints at new Apple Watch models.

According to reports, iHelp BR has discovered setup screen animations that reference new Apple Watch models that will come in titanium and ceramic cases for both the 44mm and 40mm models.

Apple Watches with ceramic cases are not new. Apple Watch Series 2 featured models with ceramic cases called Apple Watch Edition models, as did the Apple Watch Series 3. Apple, however, stopped offering watches with ceramic cases with Apple Watch Series 4.

Titanium, on the other hand, would be new to the Apple Watch. Titanium makes a lot of sense as a material for watch cases because of its strength and lightness, and also because it is hypoallergenic, making it a great option for users with sensitive skin.

That said, it is unclear at this time if these will be all-new models or simply additions to the Apple Watch Series 4 range. There have been precious few rumours about the Apple Watch this time around.

Apple will likely announce the new Apple Watch (if any) alongside the new iPhones. Reports suggest that it could happen on 10 September.
