Apple’s upcoming Watch Series 7 seemingly returned to schedule, after the tech giant reportedly solved some manufacturing issues that were rumored to have significantly delayed the launch of the smartwatch.
Production drawbacks, first reported on August 31 and allegedly related to the new Series 7 design, have been overcome, according to an article by The edge referring to an analyst’s report seen by MacRumors.
The problematic design in question reportedly features a larger display screen with an attached new watch face and a square case with square edges.
The Series 7 is also rumored to include 41mm and 45mm band sizes (with support for older bands), but it will likely lack a blood pressure measurement function.
Mass manufacturing of the watches is scheduled to begin in mid-September, just in time for Apple’s next hardware launch event scheduled for September 14, 2021.
