The rumor: Apple may make their watch battery last longer for the first time in the line’s history, according to Max Weinbach (68.8% accurate).
- “The Apple Watch Series 7 is bound to see its first real battery life improvement since the original Apple Watch,” says PineLeaks on Twitter
- Apple has promised up to 18 hours of battery life on Apple Watch since the device was released in early 2015
Our take: Finally. I can’t remember a single other Apple product that has seen battery life remain absolutely unchanged for this long…and I’m hoping the improvements could allow the watch to be charged every 2-3 days (instead of every night). Alongside the new design, perhaps this could wind up being the killer upgrade this year.
