Apple Watch Series 5 comes with the same Series 4 Processor
Apple has recently announced the all-new generation of Apple Watch Series 5 which comes with some new and exciting features such as the ‘always-on’ display, watchOS6 and built-in compass. With all these features, Apple didn’t reveal anything specifically about the performance of the newly launched device. It is also unclear that the Apple Watch Series 5 will perform better than the previous model or not. Which brings us to the conclusion that there haven’t been any improvements made to the CPU of the new device.
A renowned developer Steve Troughton-Smith claimed in a tweet that the Apple Watch Series 5 is coming with the same generation processor (GPU) as the last one. The latest version of the X-code revealed this information. Rest assured, the Apple Watch Series 4 and 5 would have the same performance in running different apps and using other WatchOS features.
According to Xcode, Apple Watch Series 5 has the same generation CPU/GPU as the Apple Watch Series 4; I guess the only changes are a gyro and 32GB of NAND? The plus side of that is that we won’t have to worry about watchOS being slower on the Series 4 than on a brand new model

The Website of the Manufacturer claims that Apple Watch Series 5 is coming with a 64-bit dual-core S5 processor and it is up to 2x faster than S3 processor.
The name S5 processor is being referred to the entire System on a Chip (SoC) and it brings a new display controller with a built in compass. The series 4 of Apple watches use the S4 SoC without all these improvements but the same CPU has been maintained in this year’s product as well.
This might not come as a surprise as the previous reports suggest that Apple wouldn’t be jumping in to bring a new generation of Apple Watch this year. And it was said about the Titanium and Ceramic models. It means Apple might be focusing on other areas and they’re interested in targeting new customers to its smart-watch series instead of increasing the performance compared to the previous Series 4. A report from a widely known platform such as CNBC claimed that the 70% of Apple Watch Customers would be buying it for the first time.
This also brings a benefit for the Series 4 owners and users as they can make use of their Apple Watches without any limitations next year as well. If you are thinking about buying the Apple Watch then you must read this Apple Watch Series 5 or Series 4 – Choose The One You Want To Buy.
