A new design for the Apple Watch 7?
If we are to believe the latest leak, the future Apple Wach Series 7 will show a lot of differences compared to previous watches, including additional colors.
Despite its seven iterations and larger screen, the Apple Watch hasn’t changed much since the original model launched in 2015. A leak unveiled by prolific Jon Prosser suggests that the next smartwatch expected this year may be different. Earlier this week, the leak specialist already announced a possible Watch redesign in the Genius Bar Podcast. According to the sources of the “leaker”, the design of the Watch Series 7 is similar to that of other products recently delivered by Apple, including flatter edges and the arrival of a green color. Jon Prosser also revealed on his own Front Page Tech Youtube channel details about the upcoming series, including images of rendered CAD files he may have seen.
This rumor corroborates old information published last year by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, before the release of Watch 6. The latter had declared that this series would have the same design as versions 4 and 5, but that the 2021 Apple Watch 7 would likely be different. The edges of the watch would resemble the edges of the iPhone and iPad Pro, that is, they would be flat, but with rounded corners, and not so sharp as to strike the wrist.
A wider color palette
Still according to Jon Prosser, in addition to these flat edges, the Apple Watch could be available in a green color similar to that of the AirPods Max. According to its source, the Cupertino company is still testing other colors, and the manufacturer could choose several as is the case with the latest 24-inch iMac, available in seven shades.

The Apple Watch 7 will likely be announced in September, along with the next line of iPhones. Although Jon Prosser did not get any information on the specifications, it is assumed that the screen will not change in size or shape, but only the design of the watch case itself will be different. It is also likely that the watch will run on an S7 processor, but we do not yet know what improvements it will bring. Finally, a persistent rumor says that Apple is working on a non-invasive blood sugar measurement, which would be a big step forward for connected technologies. This is a difficult problem to solve and there is no evidence that this feature will be available in the next Apple Watch.
