Within the close to future, Apple is greater than probably going to host an early September media occasion to point out off a spread of recent units. Whereas a lot of the consideration will clearly be placed on the brand new iPhone lineup, that’s not all we’re going to see if the rumors pan out. For example, we’re most likely going to get a brand new Apple Watch –the oft-rumored Apple Watch Sequence 7— and Apple might welcome model new sizes to the lineup.
That’s in keeping with a brand new rumor propped up by a consumer on the Chinese language social media platform Weibo that goes by the title UnclePan. This account has shared some correct info up to now, as famous as we speak by MacRumors, so we shouldn’t low cost this newest rumor by default. That being mentioned, nothing is official fairly but. And even when Apple has plans to vary the Apple Watch’s case measurement sooner or later sooner or later, plans might change. Which means this newest rumor won’t pan out, both — a minimum of not this yr.
That being mentioned! In response to UnclePan’s put up, Apple goes to vary issues up this yr somewhat bit greater than simply a brand new case design. The poster says Apple goes to undertake two bigger sizes this yr, bumping issues up from 40mm to 41mm and from 44mm to 45mm. So, not an enormous change by any means, and a few folks won’t even discover in any respect. Nonetheless, with so many rumors swirling round that Apple goes to vary the design of the Apple Watch this yr, the change in measurement actually appears doable.
The dimensions choices for the Apple Watch haven’t modified considerably over time. For a number of years, Apple provided the smartwatch in both 38mm or 42mm sizes. With the Apple Watch Sequence 4, which welcomed a bigger display screen measurement, the corporate welcomed 41mm and 44mm case sizes. So we’ve seen greater modifications up to now, however this yr’s might be noteworthy insofar that it’ll come together with a extra vital case redesign.
The query stays: will present Apple Watch bands work with the brand new case sizes? Apple has achieved a reasonably admirable job ensuring the previous watch straps work with the newer case sizes, so one has to hope that continues to be the case this yr, too.
As for the brand new Apple Watch Sequence 7, the brand new smartwatch is anticipated to welcome a brand new case design in comparison with the earlier fashions. That begins with the edges, that are anticipated to be flatter than the present mannequin. (Assume in keeping with the present iPhone 12 sequence as a reference level.) From there, the brand new smartwatch is claimed to have smaller bezels, too. Apple may also reportedly undertake a brand new inexperienced colour into the lineup as effectively. We just lately noticed CAD-based renders of what the brand new Apple Watch might appear like, and it’s actually an eye catching design. It will likely be enjoyable to see the way it appears to be like on stage, after which, finally, in the true world. The brand new smartwatch is anticipated to welcome a barely bigger battery, too.
