The impending Apple Watch will feature its first new hardware design in years, as indicated by Bloomberg columnist Mark Gurman’s Power On pamphlet. Gurman says the Apple Watch Series 7 will have “a flatter display and edges,” apparently proceeding with Apple’s journey to straighten the sides of each product in its lineup.
The display is said to be somewhat bigger than the current panels found in the Series 6, and the cases’ sizes will likewise be somewhat greater than previously, with each model getting a 1mm bump to 41mm and 45mm. Unverified leaked pictures last week proposed a similar 41mm and 45mm sizing. Gurman says Apple will incorporate various new watch faces to capitalize on the additional screen real estate.
Physical appearance to the side, the Series 7 will likewise have a faster processor, as indicated by Gurman. In any case, there supposedly will not be any significant health-focused redesigns this year, however Apple “may” incorporate a body-temperature sensor in the next year’s model.
An updated design for the Series 7 would proceed with an every-three-years cadence for significant Apple Watch hardware refreshes. The first and last time Apple changed the case design of the Apple Watch was the Series 4; that essential appearance has stayed unaltered through the Series 6, save the presentation of new materials and completions.
Apple as a rule reports new watches in September, so an uncover for the Series 7 may not be far off. Last year the Series 6 and SE watches were a feature declaration at Apple’s September event, since the iPhone 12 divulging was pushed back to October.
