Rumor | The Apple Watch series 7 will drop the prospect of new health tech for a bigger battery
Apple is projected to launch the Watch Series 7 alongside the impending upgrades to the iPhones 12 later in 2021. This wearable has been rumored to add new apps (which currently correspond to hardware for features such as advanced ECG tracking). They might support for potentially exciting and highly relevant new health-tracking data, driven by new sensors for non-invasive blood-sugar testing and body temperature.
However, according to the latest leak by UDN, these new facilities might not make it to the upcoming "Apple Watch 7". Instead, it seems Apple may want to focus on core features such as screen-on time and overall design in this update.
This, apparently, might involve a new system-in-package (SiP) integrating an "S7" processor that leaves more space for a larger battery. In addition, the "Watch 7" might debut somewhat of a new shape for the iconic wearable for the first time in multiple generations, resulting in smaller bezels for the illusion of a larger display attached to a case of more or less the same size as that of the Series 6.
In addition, their potentially iterative upgrades might at least get new colors, green included. Should this new report, allegedly based on information from industry sources, prove accurate, it might be disappointing for some health-focused Apple fans. On the other hand, the rumored new health-tracking feature-set might yet make it to the "Watch 7's" 2022 successor.
