Yes­ter­day, Apple announced the new Apple Watch Series 7. Con­trary to rumors, the watch has not received a new design. Although many expect­ed to see straight edges, like the iPhone 12, this did not hap­pen.

The only thing they did was enlarge the screen and final­ize impor­tant lit­tle things. Inter­est­ing­ly, not a word was said about improv­ing the per­for­mance of the watch at the pre­sen­ta­tion. And for good rea­son.

Devel­op­er Steve Troughton-Smith looked at the specs for the new devices in Xcode and found that the Apple Watch Series 7 runs on the “t8301” proces­sor from last year’s Series 6.

Per­haps the com­pa­ny sim­ply did not see the point in improv­ing the fill­ing, which is already very pow­er­ful. How­ev­er, there is a the­o­ry that due to prob­lems with watch pro­duc­tion, Apple decid­ed to go with a back­up plan. There­fore, we did not see any major changes in this gen­er­a­tion.

This the­o­ry is rein­forced by the fact that the com­pa­ny has not announced spe­cif­ic dates for the start of sales of the Apple Watch Series 7, unlike oth­er gad­gets. It is known that they “will be avail­able in late autumn.” It seems, for the first time in sev­er­al years, that the Apple Watch may be a scarce device. [9to5Mac]
