Apple unveiled Apple Watch Series 7 at its virtual September 14 “California Streaming” event with a larger and brighter display, five new aluminum colors, faster charging, user interface updates, IP6X certification, and more. Following the announcement, the tech giant did not reveal a street date for the device. As rumors indicate that the wearable platform could be available for pre-order soon, new images posted to Facebook gives us a first real-world look at the new design.
The images were allegedly posted to a Facebook group for “Apple Watch enthusiasts,” by a user claiming they worked for a mobile network that was involved in testing the watch. The images were ultimately taken down from Facebook and then obtained by MacRumors. One of the images shows the model details of the device while the others show the on-screen keyboard and the Home Screen in grid view.
As of now, the official status for Apple Watch Series 7 is that it will become “Available later this Fall”. As per Apple leaker Jon Prosser, Series 7 will launch by mid-October and pre-orders will open by next week. As per Prosser, the retail price for Series 7 will start from $399 like Apple Watch Series 6.
While we are still waiting for Apple to launch its next-gen smartwatch, the tech giant has already released its new lineup of 41mm and 45mm sizes bands for Apple Watch Series 7. In addition to the updated vibrant color options across the Classic, Attelage, and Jumping styles, Apple Watch Nike and Apple Watch Hermès also introduced exclusive new bands this fall. Note that old watch bands will also work with Series 7 despite the increase in display size.
