Apple analyst Gene Munster—the guy who has been predicting a full-on television set with a shiny Apple logo on it for well over five years before admitting he was terribly wrong—is back!
In a note to clients, a copy of which was obtained by Business Insider, the Piper Jaffray analyst is calling for an ‘S-upgrade’ to the Apple Watch this Spring.
In sticking to its annual upgrade cycle Apple will now make an S-version of the wrist-worn device, reasons Munster. If he’s right, that would constitute borrowing a page from the iPhone’s book.
As you know, iPhones recycle same design with so-called S-upgrades that focus on hardware advanced every other year. This Spring, Munster posits, the Apple Watch will receive refreshed internals like faster chips, packed inside enclosures unchanged from existing watches.
