Apple Watch Series 7: the connected watch will be available in mid-October
The Apple Watch Series 7 was announced at Apple’s special event in September, along with the iPhone 13 lineup and new iPad models, but it’s still eagerly awaited.
Unlike the iPhone 13s and the new iPads which were released right after the conference last month, the Apple Watch Series 7 are still long overdue. Indeed, the Apple Watch Series 7 has been delayed due to manufacturing issues due to the complexity of the new design, which ultimately pushed Apple to adopt a more classic design and push back on mass production.
On the official Apple website, we can read that the watch will be “Available this fall, without further details”, but a new report from leaker Jon Prosser indicates that Apple Watch Series 7 will finally be available from mid-October.
Apple Watch Series 7 pre-orders begin next week
In addition to confirming the launch window for the new Apple Watch Series 7, Prosser also cited several anonymous sources familiar with the watch’s release schedule and assured that pre-orders could start as early as next week.
The Apple Watch Series 7 features a sleek design chassis that accommodates a larger Retina display, with nearly 20% more screen area compared to the Apple Watch Series 6. Apple also relies heavily on improvements in robustness, dust resistance as well as an improved energy management system that allows 33% faster charging thanks to a new USB-C Magnetic Fast Charger cable. No performance improvement is expected, since Apple recycled the SoC from the previous generation.
As a reminder, the watch will be marketed from $ 399 like the Apple Watch Series 6 last year. We should therefore find the watch from 429 euros in France. 5 colors will be available: Green, Blue, Product Red, Starlight and Midnight. We will also be entitled to more expensive stainless steel and titanium versions, which will be respectively offered in Silver, Graphite and Gold for the first ones, and Natural or Space Black for the titanium versions.
