Apple has been gradually pivoting its design language over the years and across its products. Interestingly enough it started with the iPad Pro which ditched the curved edges in favor of flat ones. This later expanded to the iPhone 12, and it looks like it could soon be extended to the Apple Watch as well.
In a series of new renders shared by 91mobiles, they have posted what appears to be renders of the upcoming Apple Watch Series 7 which shows off the watch’s flat edges. This seems to be in line with the renders we saw from Jon Prosser and RendersByIan a few months ago, so while it’s not necessarily confirmed, they do corroborate each other’s claims.
The adoption of flat edges gives the watch a bit more of a square look to it. While the face of the Apple Watch has always been square-ish, the use of the curved edges and curved display did give it a more “organic” look. This makes it look more boxy, but whether or not that’s a good or bad thing will boil down to your own personal preference.
Apple is said to be planning an event in September where the iPhone 13 will be announced. It is also the same event that will most likely see the launch of the Series 7 as well, so check back with us in the coming weeks for the details.
