Apple Watch will have larger face size in Series 10 models

Apple is poised to incorporate a larger screen size and some other upgrades when the tech giant releases its Series 10 smartwatch, according to Bloomberg.

The outlet reported on Sunday that the planned upgrades for the two Apple Watch Series 10 models may be linked to the smartwatch celebrating its upcoming 10-year anniversary. 

The change in screen size will make the Series 10 more in line with that of the Apple Watch Ultra, according to Bloomberg. The Apple Watch Ultra 2 features a 49 mm case.
