The upcoming iPhone 13 might be getting all the attention but there’s another product that will make its debut at Apple’s September media event. This year Apple Watch Series 7 is expected to receive a major design refresh, which will finally replace the design that has been around since Apple Watch Series 4.
According to several reports, latest of which comes from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman Apple is going to make the design of the Apple Watch Series 7 flatter compared to the previous generation. The new design will have flatter display and edges bringing its look and feel closer to that of iPhone 12.
In addition to a new design, which is undoubtedly the highlight of this year’s new model, Series 7 is also expected to bring an improved processor.
Larger screen sizes
Apple Watch Series 7 is also reported to feature slightly larger displays than Apple’s current offering, thanks to the new design.
According to rumors the smaller version of the Watch will come with a 41-millimeter screen size while the larger version will come with 45-millimeter size.
The 1-millimeter increase might not be very significant however Apple is still trying to take advantage of it by designing an updated Infograph Modular face.
No New Health Features
As far as health features are concerned Apple is not expected to add any major new health features in this release. Apple added the ability to measure ECG with Apple Watch Series 4 while Apple Watch Series 6 brought the ability to check Blood Oxygen.
Apple is said to add body temperature measurement feature to the Apple Watch with Series 8 next year.
When will Apple announce Apple Watch Series 7
Apple has yet to officially announce its September media event where it is expected to launch the new iPhones, Apple Watch and other products.
This could also change since Apple delayed iPhone 12 event to October last year. The event will be online-only just like all Apple events have been ever since the start of the Pandemic.
