A recently released internal Apple document reveals more details about the Apple Watch Series 7, including weights, connectivity, and internals. The comparison document that Apple has not shared with customers shows that the watch incorporates a new S7 system, but retains the same processor and speeds as the S6 chip in the 6 series.
Meet the S7, like the S6
Last night, developer Stephen Troughton-Smith discovered that the Apple Watch Series 7 has the exact same processor as the Apple Watch Series 6, and this document corroborates that detail. What’s different is just branding – something Apple doesn’t push much.
Apple calls the new 7-series SiP the S7 chip. While the processor remains the same, it’s likely that other small components have actually changed to accommodate the larger display.
Series 7 weight
Other details like the weight of each model are also included in the documentation. Apple has yet to reveal this information on apple.com.
- Apple Watch Series 7 aluminum weighs 32.0g / 38.8g compared to 30.5g / 36.4g last year
- Stainless steel watches are significantly heavier, weighing 42.3g / 51.5g compared to 39.7g / 47.1g last year
- 7-series titanium models weigh 37.0g / 45.1g compared to 34.6g / 41.3g last year
According to the document, Series 7 has the same speaker as Series 6, still 50% louder than Series 3. Series 7 has the same Bluetooth 5.0 components, same U1 chip, same 32GB of storage, and the same international emergency call functionality.
You can download the document for yourself using the Dropbox link in the tweet shared with us below. Keep in mind that Apple states at the end of the document that all specifications are always “subject to change without notice.”
The Apple Watch Series 7 does not yet have a release date or pre-order date beyond this fall.
