The Apple Watch Series 7 is finally here, but it still has to get into the hands of customers. Despite the larger screen, the Apple Watch Series 7 is geared towards an innovation of the “S” year. This is due to the fact that the 7 Series does not change much from a functional point of view, but adds to the existing experience. If you remember, the Apple Watch has a diagnostic port hidden at the bottom. For the Apple Watch Series 7, Apple got rid of the diagnostic port. This means that the company will use wireless data transmission instead.
Apple Watch Series 7 diagnostic port has disappeared because Apple will use wireless data instead
The diagnostic port, located in the lower band slot, is now on the Apple Watch Series 7 (via Mac rumors). As its name suggests, Apple used this port for diagnostic purposes when the device was delivered for service. For example, it can be used to restore watchOS using a cable connection. If the diagnostic port is gone on your Apple Watch 7 Series, that means that Apple will now be using the wireless data. This is explained by the new 60.5 Hz wireless data module.
According to Federal Communications Commission data, the wireless data module will only activate if the Apple Watch Series 7 is placed on a patented magnetic dock with the same frequency module. This will allow Apple to perform diagnostics such as a wireless watchOS recovery instead of a wired connection. The reason why Apple Watch Series 7 does not have a diagnostic port is likely due to the fact that it is dust-resistant with IP6X protection.
Series 7 will be available to customers on Friday, October 15. Apple Watch Series 7 reviews are now available on YouTube, so you can watch them if you haven’t already. On Monday, October 18, Apple is organizing another event to present the new MacBook Pro models powered by the M1Book.
