Apple is now offering more storage capacity on its Apple Watches – 64GB compared to 32GB on last year’s Apple Watch Series 8. The specifications listed on Apple’s website confirm this information. One direct benefit of this update – we believe – could be the ability to install more apps, store more music offline, and make it easier to update your watch.
