When Apple announced the iPhone 13, Apple Watch Series 7, 6th generation iPad mini, and 9th generation iPad at its "California Streaming" event, the Apple Watch was the only product that didn't get a release date.
Instead of announcing preorder and release dates, Apple said that the latest generation of its smartwatch would release "later this fall." According to Apple leaker Jon Prosser, "later this fall" could mean next month.
As reported by Front Page Tech, Prosser claims that the Apple Watch Series 7 could begin shipping as soon as mid-October. The leaker also says that preorders for the new watch could begin as soon as next week.
The Apple Watch Series 7 features a 20% larger display, two new watch faces, faster charging, dust resistance, and crack-resistant front crystal.
