The Apple Watch Series 6, introduced by Apple in September of last year, has been discontinued following the launch of the new Apple Watch Series 7.

Following pre-orders of the Apple Watch Series 7 opening up earlier today, Apple has removed the Series 6 from its website, no longer offering it to purchase for customers. The Apple Watch Series 7 replaces the Series 6 and now leaves the Apple Watch SE, Apple Watch Series 3, and Series 7 in the lineup.

Apple announced the Series 7 earlier last month but declined to offer availability dates until earlier this week. Between the Series 7's announcement and pre-orders, Apple kept the Apple Watch Series 6 available for purchase on its website, but many models were unavailable and out of stock.

The Series 7 is Apple's most high-end Apple Watch model, featuring advanced health features and display technology. The Series 7 starts at $399, with the most expensive configuration having a $1499 price tag.

The Apple Watch SE is the mid-level Apple Watch model; starting at $279, the SE offers customers basic Apple Watch features without advanced functionality, such as a blood oxygen sensor. The Apple Watch Series 3, introduced five years ago, remarkably remains in the Apple Watch lineup and starts at just $199.

My Series 3 is still going strong. Great watch if you just want a basic activity tracker and don't need cellular or any of the added features they've tacked on. Especially now that they fixed the update issue. It had been a giant PITA having to restore the watch every time an update came out.

I hope that the person holding the gun to your head and forcing you to buy it gets apprehended soon

I haven't been paying attention since the Watch doesn't interest me, but holy carp, the series 3 is still being sold? No shame, Apple. No shame. ?

Sucks for those shoppers who don't know that it's 5 years old and Apple will probably drop support for it next year.
