Report: Apple Watch Series 7 Will Use A New Smaller Double-Sided S7 Chip
This year’s Apple Watch Series 7 release will reportedly feature an all-new S7 processor that will be smaller than previous releases while also packing a double-sided design.
In a paywalled preview of a report that was seen by MacRumors, DigiTimes says that the new chip will be produced by Taiwanese supplier ASE Technology.
That same company says that the use of double-sized technology allows for miniaturization, something Apple could well be drawn to for Apple Watch Series 7.
What that will mean for users isn’t clear. The Apple Watch Series 7 isn’t expected to be a huge departure from the current Apple Watch Series 6 device that has been on sale for almost a year. Reports from Bloomberg have previously said that thinner display technology could be used this time, while a new flat-edged design was also leaked by Jon Prosser – alongside a fetching green colorway.
Recent reports suggest the rumored blood glucose monitoring will have to wait until Apple Watch Series 8 or beyond with this years’ release simply coming too soon for it to be added.
With all eyes now on iPhone 13 rumors, it’s sometimes easy to forget that Apple does have other new hardware to get out the door this year – including a new Apple Watch.
