Apple has also introduced new iPhones and iPads.
Although Apple introduced the new iPhones during its presentation on Tuesday, space was also reserved for the new generation of smartwatches. It will be known in the market as Watch Series 7.
Apple made several major news. Here are some tips:
The new smartwatch was supposed to offer flatter edges in the style of iPhones. However, these rumors were not ultimately confirmed, and rather Apple added more to round the edges. At the same time, engineers inserted a larger screen in approximately the same body.
The screen bezels have been reduced by up to 40 percent compared to the 6 Series, to a level of 1.7 mm. As a result, the display area has increased by a fifth. In addition, the screen is 70 percent brighter than its predecessor.
WatchOS will benefit from a larger viewing area with updated elements of the environment. For example, we will have larger buttons.
Notifications in turn show more content (text), and the watch now offers a full QWERTY keyboard with QuickPath (to predict what we intend to type). New numbers will also be added.
We will also be able to use the watch as digital keys, support ECG and can also act as an oxygen meter. As before, there is a lack of mobile connectivity.
At the same time, Apple emphasized increased durability during the show – the latest generation of watches will be the most durable to date. The degree of protection is mentioned as IP6X for dust resistance and WR50 for water resistance.
The company also said that the battery should provide up to 18 hours on a single charge, the same as the previous value. However, the charging process should be significantly speeded up (by 33 percent) thanks to the new charger with USB Type-C connector. From zero to 80 percent of capacity, we’ll have it in 45 minutes.
The news was confirmed that we will wait for the new hour. Apple initially announces availability during the fall, but hasn’t specified it. It is reported unofficially that the company is having problems with the production of watches.
However, we know the selling prices at least. The latest Watch Series 7 line will start at $399.
However, Apple says the current Watch Series 3 (for $199) and the Watch SE line, which will start at $279, will also remain on offer. Similar prices can be expected in euros.
Despite design changes, we will still be able to use existing belts. The full set will be on display again. On the contrary, the watch itself will be available in five colors. The operating system will be WatchOS 8.
We also draw attention to a new segment of our SHARE Technology podcast, in which you will learn:
- That the new iPhones have almost the same design as last year’s models,
- The performance and quality of images in poor lighting conditions are greatly improved,
- The difference between iPhone 13 and 13 Pro is a bit bigger again
- And there will be no direct satellite connection functionality on the new iPhones.
