    How do you know..?

    It could go either way but I'd say there most likely will be. But I'm not going to say it like it's a fact.

    It would be weird if Apple suddenly switched to an 18 month cycle for a product. My bet is for March 2017, so it doesn't steal the iPhones spotlight in the fall. Apple doesn't really release new products close to the winter months anymore, and late summer will be the Macs spotlight.

    I like how you call out other peoples guesses, but assume your own guess is correct.

    I said it's likely maybe you should read it better.

    Speculation mode:

    Well, if you take a closer look at the slogan-text on watchOS 3, saying "Feels like a whole new watch" (see link down below) it might be unlikely that they'll release a new watch this year. Maybe a new collection in tandem with watchOS 3 public release this fall but not more.

    http://www.apple.com/watchos-preview/

    watchOS 3 seems to bring a whole new life to the current watch, making it surprisingly snap and per-se is proven if you take a look at many reviews on Youtube (very positive review wince beta 1 of watchOS3)

    This makes perfect sense to me and is probably the best indicator for no new watch this year.

    Why is that likely? They've just removed one of the biggest reasons people were looking forward to a next generation Apple Watch.

    Before that, they pointed to June. And before that, they pointed to March. ;)

    One can only dream that apple might finally care about their Macs again... My guess is that a AW update is more likely than a Mac update.

    We've had part leaks indicating an iPhone 7 release this year. So far there have been no leaks regarding new hardware on a watch. This should pretty much tell you the watch isn't getting an upgrade this year.

    Its weird but in the past 2 or 3 months my parents, siblings, wife and friends have all suddenly decided to buy an Apple Watch. Before this I literally didn't know anyone with one! It can't be coincidence and Im sure I can't be the only one in this situation. Maybe the advertising is working? Maybe its starting to make ground? Perhaps for this reason there won't be new hardware until next year? Who knows!

    Problem is that while software will greatly improve user experience, it can never solve make up for missing hardware. Hardware that is GPS. Only then, will it truly be a whole new watch.

    I bought my wife an AW that she is now thrilled about, where before she was ambivalent about it.

    I suppose with iPhones you can guarantee when the new model is due. Most other Apple products have a less predictable update schedule, especially the Apple Watch.

    I don't think I would buy one now though. I've had mine more than a year now so I would think a new one can't be that far away.

    To be honest I prefer the older macs that were easy to upgrade. I don't fancy buying a new macbookpro and not being able to upgrade it, and being stuck with a small hard 'disk'.

    I suppose it's a tribute to the design of macs that I am more than happy with m 2011 mbp.

    ummmm yes, it definitely changes it.

    pretty key in the english language. IS and LIKELY are 2 VERY different words.

    Wouldn't mind them releasing a 46mm Apple Watch this fall. I'm a big guy and the 42mm looks small on my wrist. Plus big watches are a thing now, and even a 46mm would be smaller than many of them. They could even call it the Apple Watch Pro!
