Several reports have indicated that Apple would have problems producing its next-generation smartwatch in time for its September 14 launch event. Reportedly, Apple has now overcome these issues, providing it with enough stock for launch day.

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.
