Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 7 at the iPhone event in September, but stopped short on saying when the device would actually launch. This seemed to be in line with earlier rumors that suggested that there could be issues with production and that the global chip shortage contributed to it.
This is why Apple was unable to provide a firm release date on the smartwatch, but now according to Jon Prosser of FrontPageTech, he claims that based on what he’s heard from his sources, the Apple Watch Series 7 is expected to begin shipping out mid-October which means that we should be able to order it around that time as well.
Do note that this is a rumor as Apple hasn’t confirmed anything yet, but since we are pretty much in October already, we expect that Apple should have some details to share soon if the rumors are true. If not we’ll just have to wait.
The Series 7 was admittedly a bit of a disappointing launch. While it does come with a slightly updated design, it wasn’t the massive overhaul that we had been hearing about. The upgrades also don’t feel that spectacular and there aren’t any new health sensors. If you’re looking to upgrade coming from a Series 3 or Series 4, it might be a good upgrade, otherwise if you don’t mind holding out, the Series 8 could prove to be a more compelling device.
