Apple Watch Series 7 may include new double-sided S7 chip

The rumor: Apple is working on a radical upgrade to the chip design in Apple Watch Series 7, according to DigiTimes (63.5% accurate, via MacRumors.)

  • Taiwanese supplier ASE Technology has developed double-sided System in Package (SiP) technology that allows for a smaller chip design
  • Apple Watch Series 7 is rumored to be redesigned and include new health features

Our take: This absolutely sounds like it could lead to a larger battery in a watch that is tremendously size constrained already. In all of Apple’s products, every millimeter counts…but especially in smaller ones like AirPods or Apple Watch.
