Apple Watch Series 7: launch stocks will be very limited
The Apple Watch Series 7 will hit the market in very limited stocks. According to information from Bloomberg, Apple is facing big production problems because of the new screen of the connected watch. Despite everything, the smartwatch will be well presented during the iPhone 13 keynote.
Apple Watch Series 7 will be available in very limited quantities at launch, warns Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman in his Sunday newsletter. According to him, some editions of the connected watch will be “Shipped late or available in small quantities”. If you pre-order your new smartwatch from the Apple Store or from a retailer, you could wait several weeks before receiving your accessory.
“The situation shouldn’t be too different for those who witnessed the original Apple Watch launch in 2015”, explains Mark Gurman. That year, the connected watch was presented in April but it took several weeks for it to be available in stores in sufficient quantities. Out of stock were numerous and, unsurprisingly, the second-hand market took advantage of this to increase prices.
Apple will introduce Apple Watch Series 7 alongside iPhone 13
The journalist points to the production problems encountered by Apple. The new screen, larger and surrounded by flat edges, would cause serious production problems. A few days earlier, a Nikkei report pointed in the same direction. The outlet claimed that the assembly line failed to meet Apple’s high production demands because of the many components that had to be inserted into the case. It is probably for this reason that the brand finally makes deadlock on the sensor capable of measuring blood pressure. This novelty dedicated to health would be delayed until next year. This year, Apple is focusing on design.
Despite these many difficulties, Apple would present the Apple Watch Series 7 during the keynote dedicated to iPhone 13. According to information gleaned by Gurman, the Cupertino giant would not wish to announce the connected watch at a separate event, such as this was the case last year.
In this context, we expect to discover the 7th generation Apple Watch from the Tuesday, September 14, 2021. If the leaks of recent weeks have been correct, Apple was to send the invitations to the press from Tuesday, September 7, 2021. We tell you more as soon as possible about the watch.
