Newly released photos allegedly show a black ceramic Apple Watch Series 5 that was never released.
Apple released the Apple Watch Series 5 in 2019 with a ceramic “Edition” version, but it was only available in white. Edition versions of Apple Watch are not released every year and are not always the same material.
A photo shared by a usual part leaker named “Mr. White” on Twitter shows what could be a black ceramic Apple Watch Series 5. This device was never announced, and could have been scrapped for any number of reasons.
As of the Apple Watch Series 2, Apple switched the Edition material to ceramic from 18 karat gold. Apple did not release Edition versions of the Apple Watch Series 4 or Apple Watch Series 6.
