The Apple Watch Series 7 will ship this month in large quantities, production issues notwithstanding
Recently, supply chain sources indicated that production issues would cause Apple to delay the Watch Series 7, its next-generation smartwatches. For reference, Apple encountered problems with producing the latest iPad Pro 12.9, with it shipping hardly any units at launch.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, via 9to5Mac and MacRumors, Apple has now resolved its Watch Series 7 worries, which we have discussed previously. Correspondingly, the company remains on track to present the Watch Series 7 alongside the iPhone 13 series on September 14. This year's launch event will be an online-only one, meaning that Apple has pre-recorded it.
Kuo also states that Apple's new displays were the main reasons behind its Watch Series 7-related production delays. Reputedly, Apple has adopted a new lamination process to reduce bezels and save space, crucial for small devices like the Apple Watch. Kuo adds that Apple will begin shipping the Watch Series 7 at the end of September, and in large quantities at that.
Still, the Watch Series 7 is not expected to offer any new health features than those that Apple has already integrated in the Watch Series 6. The upcoming smartwatches should feature a thinner and flatter design though, comparable to the iPhone 13 series. A new SoC will join the revised display too, which is said to be up to 30% larger than those in the Watch Series 6.
