According to information from journalist Mark Gurman, the next version of the Apple Watch would benefit from a flatter screen, in line with the other products of the American manufacturer.
Since the launch of the first version of the Apple Watch in 2014, it cannot be said that the Apple Watch has undergone any radical change in terms of design. The manufacturer has indeed kept the same aesthetic approach with a square screen and very rounded borders. However, this format should change for the next iteration as reported by reporter Mark Gurman of the Bloomberg agency.
As part of his Power On newsletter, the journalist indicates that the Apple Watch Series 7 would be entitled to a completely new design, in particular to add more aesthetic consistency between the various products of the firm. She would benefit as well “A little redesign with a flatter screen and updated display technology”. As reported by the iMore site, it also indicates that the future connected watch would benefit from a faster processor.
A change in the extension of iPad, iPhone and iMac
The presence of a flat screen for the new Apple Watch Series 7 seems consistent with previous leaks. Last May, leaker Jon Prosser published 3D renderings of the watch with industrial design much more in line with current Apple products. It must be said that, for a little over a year, Apple has changed its aesthetic design language, moving from roundness to sharper angles and flat edges. After’iPad Pro, the iPhone 12 then the new iMacs have already taken advantage of this new design. The Apple Watch Series 7 would thus be one of the next Apple devices to take advantage of it.
This change would be significant for Apple, especially given the reluctance of the manufacturer to change the aesthetic approach of its Apple Watch, almost unchanged since the first model in 2015.
In addition to the Apple Watch Series 7, Mark Gurman also provided a lot of information on the Apple products expected by the end of the year. According to the journalist, the manufacturer would obviously prepare a new batch of iPhone 13, but also a MacBook Pro with a new M1X chip, an iPad Mini and new AirPods.
