The Apple Watch Series 7 is here and it looks a little different from the previous generation. With just a 1.7mm bezel surrounding the screen, the Series 7’s screen now looks significantly larger and brings the screen closer to the edge. As well as this the always-on screen mode is 70% brighter and Apple also claims that you can now pack an additional 50% more text onto the display compared to the Apple Watch Series 6. Unfortunately, the Series 7 will not be available until this fall which we assume is due to the rumours regarding the issues with the manufacturing process. However, we think the Series 7 is definitely worth the wait, having had the most significant update since the Apple Watch launched in 2015.

The new Series 7 watch from Apple was announced during their live event today and will be available to pre order today for launch during the fall of this year. So, as of right now there is no official release date for the Apple Watch 7.
