Breaking: Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra sales paused in the US – Find out why!

Apple temporarily stops selling two Apple Watch models in the US

Apple has decided to stop selling the Apple Watch Series 9 and the Apple Watch Ultra 2 in the United States. The reason behind this decision is an ongoing dispute over the blood oxygen sensor used in these devices. This move comes after the International Trade Commission (ITC) sided with medical tech company Masimo in a patent dispute related to the sensor technology.

As a result of the ITC’s decision, Apple will no longer make the Series 9 and Ultra 2 watches available for purchase on its US online store starting from 12 PM Pacific Time on December 21, and in Apple retail stores after December 24. However, these watches will still be available for purchase in other countries, as well as on Amazon and Best Buy while supplies last.

The ITC ban only affects the sale of new Apple Watch units and does not impact existing models with blood oxygen monitoring. This means that the Apple Watch SE 2 remains unaffected and will still be available for purchase.

The ITC ban will take effect in a few days, but customers can still buy the Apple Watch Series 9 and Watch Ultra 2 right now. In fact, there are some great discounts available on Amazon, with the price of the Apple Watch Series 9 being reduced to as low as $329, making it an attractive purchase. The Apple Watch Ultra 2 is also being offered at a discounted price of $750, down from $799.

Despite this setback, Apple is already looking ahead to the future, with plans for major upgrades to the Apple Watch 10 next year. It seems like there will be more exciting developments in the world of Apple Watch in the near future.
