Apple Watch is known for its impressive lifespan and a design historically speaking to last a while. Every new generation of iWatch has enhancements obviously but a watch lasts few years before one thinks of replacement. However, if you are planning to upgrade this year you will have additional features like an always-on and larger display as well as a compass, blood oxygen and altimeter. For those who are tracking 2021’s Apple Watch Series 7 release, we have confirmed news though they are leaks coming from 2 reliable sources.
In a break from its traditional iPhone 13 series lineup announcement last month, Apple kept the Watch Series 7 launch date under wraps. It was left to everyone’s best guess of a launch happening sometime in Fall 2021. But we have two leaks from confirmed sources about the upcoming launch.
Apple Watch Series 7 pre order date
The sources have confirmed that Watch Series 7 preorders can be placed from Friday, 8th October and it will be shipped the following week. The Apple Watch 7 pre order date is set for international markets.
One such confirmation has come from Hermès, one of Apple’s official partners. AppleTrack has got hold of internal emails from Hermès in which the customer service says
Another reliable source whose accuracy rate is 74.6%, Jon Prosser, says his sources have confirmed a mid-October launch with Watch 7 pre order date to be announced in the coming week.
Apple is yet to confirm the launch news. However, it does not stop anyone of us to dream. If the date from Hermes is true, one can hope for the press invites for Apple Watch Pre order date to go out on Tuesday, October 5th, 2021 and that is tomorrow. If these dates stand true, then one can hope Apple to update its Apple Store app to show the configurations and prices.
In the meantime, the latest renders of the Apple Watch Series 7 have surfaced on a Facebook group for Apple Watch enthusiasts as reported by MacRumors. One can see a deviation from the leaks out in open to date. The watch display is larger, more expansive, and “more rounded and softer corners”. There is slight curvature over the edges.
