Apple Watch Series 3 sold out before production ends
Just days before the series is expected to be discontinued, Apple Watch Series 3 models are being rolled out around the world.appleThe online store is finally sold out. Of the four Series 3 configurations listed on Apple’s website, three are currently out of stock in the UK and Australia, and one series model is not available in US stores. Availability in other countries varies.
The upcoming watchOS 9 software update is not compatible with the Apple Watch Series 3, and Apple is expected to stop selling the device after it unveils the new Apple Watch model at a special event on Wednesday.
New models rumored to be announced at the event include the Apple Watch Series 8, a higher-end Series 8 model likely to be named the Apple Watch Pro, and the second-generation Apple Watch SE. The original Apple Watch SE could replace the Series 3 as the new lowest-priced model.
The Apple Watch Series 3, which launched in 2017, is already very outdated, and as the Series 4 and newer models of watchOS 9 near release later this month, the Apple Watch Series 3 is also entering the countdown to its own life cycle.
