Apple Watch Series 6 leak reveals unexpected (and extravagant) new design

Back in 2015, Apple tried to pitch its brand new Apple Watch at luxury watch fans with a ludicrously expensive gold 'Edition' model, starting at $10,000. That model was discontinued after a year (and is already obsolete, since watchOS 5 and above aren't compatible with it), but the luxury design could be making an unexpected comeback with the Apple Watch Series 6.

A renowned Apple leaker has shared images (below) of a gold Apple Watch, along with a plush leather case complete with an in-built lightning charger. In a subsequent tweet, the leaker claims that casing options for the Apple Watch Series 6 will include a gold edition – which means the ultimate tech/fashion flex could be making a comeback.
