watchOS 11 Rumored to Exclude Apple Watch Series 4, Series 5, and First-Gen SE


Speculation abounds regarding the compatibility of upcoming Apple software updates, including iOS 18, macOS 15, and tvOS 18, with existing devices. However, a different scenario may unfold for watchOS 11. According to a recent post on the social media platform X by a reputable leaker, watchOS 11 is expected to drop support for several models, including the Apple Watch Series 4 (2018), Apple Watch Series 5 (2019), and the first-generation Apple Watch SE (2020). The update is likely to remain compatible with all other models, including the Apple Watch Series 6 and newer.

This decision, if confirmed, would not be entirely surprising, especially considering that the Apple Watch Series 5 shares the same S5 chip as the Series 4. Noteworthy improvements introduced with the Series 5 included an always-on display option, increased storage, and a built-in compass.

The leaker, known for providing accurate information on Apple’s software updates, has chosen to remain anonymous, maintaining a private account on X.

Official details regarding watchOS 11 compatibility are expected to be revealed during the WWDC keynote, scheduled to take place in a few hours.
