What you need to know
- Apple Watch Series 7 was announced on Tuesday.
- Much to the internet's surprise it looked nothing like we thought it would.
- A new piece of insight reckons that's because leaked designs are actually next year's watch.
As we've previously noted, the Apple Watch looked nothing like the wearable multiple leakers and insiders told us to expect, from our special report:
Jon Prosser noted in his Apple Watch Series 7 reveal video that a source had hinted at the prospect we might not be looking at the Apple Watch Series 7, but the Series 8. That insight has now been backed up than nonother than John Gruber over at Daring Fireball. Responding to speculation that Apple changed the design last minute because of supply issues, Gruber dismissed that notion out of hand and then stated:
Gruber isn't a leaker per se, but does have a proven track record of specific inside information and access behind the curtain at Apple.
Apple Watch brought more disappointment because we were also promised a new processor that didn't materialize. We did however get a slightly tweaked design with new Watch Faces, a larger display, and more durability.
