Apple is expected to announce their next-gen smartwatch, the Apple Watch Series 7, later this year. Based on the rumors, this is the first time in a long time that the watch will be undergoing a massive redesign, but if you were hoping to see some major new features, it is possible that you might be disappointed.
However, for those who prefer a longer-lasting battery, then your wish could be granted. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he believes that the Series 7 could be the first Apple Watch to adopt a double-sided System In Package. This is to help reduce the overall size of the processor in the watch, which Taiwan’s Economic Daily News believes could result in more space being freed up and thus a larger battery could be fit inside of it.
As it stands, the Apple Watch doesn’t have the best battery life. While it’s not terrible by any means, it definitely could stand to be improved upon, especially with features like sleep tracking which would require the user to wear the watch all day and all night. We’re not sure how much bigger the battery could be, but hopefully it will be significant enough.
While there have been rumors about Apple introducing features like a non-invasive method of measuring blood glucose levels, recent reports claim that it is apparently still years from being a reality. There have been other rumored features like a body temperature sensor, but apparently that won’t arrive until 2022.
