Apple Watch Series 9

If you’re shopping for an Apple Watch this holiday season, you’re running short on time. Not only is Christmas fast approaching, but a new twist has developed where Apple must stop selling Apple Watch models due to an ongoing patent issue.

Apple will stop selling Apple Watch due to a patent dispute, starting on December 21, according to Bloomberg. Retailers that have Apple Watch models in stock will be able to continue selling their existing stock, but that stock will not be refreshed after the ban takes effect, without direct involvement from US President Biden, anyway. Specifically, the sales ban will impact Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2, because of their ability to read blood oxygen levels.

Fortunately, Amazon still has Apple Watch Series 9, Apple Watch Series 8, and Apple Watch Ultra 2, all in stock and with nice discounts, and with delivery before Christmas.
