Report claims Apple moving forward with Apple Watch 3D printing

Bloomberg reported that Apple has started manufacturing 3D parts for its upcoming Apple Watch model.

Consistent with analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s claims that Apple will use 3D printing for titanium mechanical parts in the Apple Watch, Bloomberg has backed up this claim with several changes, most notably the use of stainless steel material instead of titanium. Kuo said in July that Apple would use 3D-printed titanium mechanical parts for the yet-to-be-released Apple Watch model.

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman also said that Apple is testing the process for sustainability and speed and will likely do so for the Apple Watch Series 9.

Apple is believed to launch the Apple Watch Series 9 in September. While there is a small period between the introduction of a new manufacturing process, the 3D printed parts could likely be applied to future Apple Watch models instead.
