The rumor: Even amid notable production delays, Apple still plans to announce the next generation Apple Watch on September 14, according to Mark Gurman (88.8% accurate, via Power On).
- Speaking to the Apple Watch Series 7, “I’m led to believe that we’ll see an announcement during the usual September event alongside the iPhone, but there will be a mix of the models shipping late or in small quantities” Gurman says
- The new wearable is expected to feature an updated design with flat edges and larger speaker grills, in addition to a faster processor and WiFi chip
Our take: This sounds perfectly reasonable amid the production issues. Glad we will still be seeing this on Tuesday and not at a later event in the Fall!
