In stark contrast with previous generations of the world’s best-selling intelligent timepiece, the Apple Watch Series 7 got an awfully vague “later this fall” ETA on Tuesday. This essentially corroborates recent speculation of mysterious production issues encountered at the last minute, which could also explain why the hot new smartwatch looks so radically different from what all those generally reliable leakers and insiders told us to expect.
In other news, MacRumors was also able to confirm the Series 7 will ship (at some point) with a 1-meter USB-C magnetic fast charging cable included as standard, as well as the same 32 gigs of internal storage as its predecessor and unchanged Bluetooth 5.0 and U1 ultra wideband technology.
Last but not necessarily least, you shouldn’t be surprised to hear a weight increase is in the cards, although we’re not talking about anything drastic. The 41mm models in aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium will be anywhere between 4.9 and 6.9 percent heavier than the same variants of the Apple Watch Series 6, with gains of between 6.6 and 9.3 percent tipped for 45mm case sizes.
