such as a thinner screen bezel.
Don’t expect significant improvements in Apple Watch hardware this year. Instead, they think that future Apple Watch Series 7 models would have screen improvements and other minor updates.
- The screen of the Apple Watch Series 7 will update a little.
- Still under development: Improved UWB network.
- Oh, don’t forget the faster Apple chip!
- A model with new features scheduled for 2022.
2021 Apple Watch Series 7 will be a minor update
Mark Garman and Debbie Wu, who wrote for Bloomberg, from their sources familiar with Apple’s plans, users should expect minor improvements to the Apple Watch in 2021 and new features—learned that expected to appear in future watches after 2022.
“Apple’s previous goal was to include a temperature sensor in this year’s model, but it’s more likely to be included in the 2022 update,” the article said.
According to Bloomberg News, Apple Watch Series 7 should make three minor hardware changes.
You don’t need a source to know that every Apple gadget with an annual release schedule, like clockwork, gets a new, faster chip every year.
The tentative name Apple Watch Series 7 needs to narrow the boundaries of the display. This allows you to enlarge the screen without expanding the device chassis. Most importantly, Apple’s suppliers seem to have created “a new lamination technology to bring the display closer to the front cover,” just like the iPhone.
Improved wireless connection
This requires updated wireless capabilities and better UWB capabilities. For example, UWB chips have used the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 series, the current Apple Watch Series 6, and the company’s item tracker called AirTag.
Given that future watchOS, eight software updates will allow devices to unlock doors and hotel rooms; it makes sense to use the UWB hardware updated in Series 7.
One of the consequences of the above enhancements is that the upcoming Series 7 may be slightly thicker overall, but “users won’t notice.”
According to a previous leak, this year’s Apple Watch may adopt a redesigned look with flat sides and new green options.
When will Apple Watch Series 7 be released?
The original Apple Watch launched in April 2015, but subsequent models have moved to Apple’s standard release schedule. For example, Apple typically releases a new iPad in September or October and updates the Apple Watch simultaneously.
We do not expect Apple to deviate from this established schedule in 2021.
What’s new in the 2022 Apple Watch
According to Garman, the Apple Watch is scheduled for a further major update in 2022, including temperature and blood sugar monitoring features.
Most importantly, the next Apple Watch SE will release in 2022, and in March 2021, an Extreme version will release that focuses on the new sport that we first heard about.
