Leaked Apple Watch Sequence 7 Renders May Be of the Apple Watch Sequence 8

(*1*)

The Apple Watch Sequence 7 release on September 14 left everybody stunned since rumors all alongside had claimed the watch would function an edgier design to compare the brand new iPhone 13. Now John Gruber at Bold Fireball claims the leaks will have been for the Apple Watch Sequence 8.(*3*)(*13*)

In his expose video of the Apple Watch Sequence 7, leaker Jon Prosser famous that the leaked sharp-edged design may well be for the Apple Watch Sequence 8 and no longer the Apple Watch Sequence 7. This has been subsidized up through Gruber, who isn’t precisely a leaker however has a confirmed observe document of getting explicit insider data and behind-the-scenes get admission to at Apple.

Gruber spoke back to hypothesis that Apple modified the design on the ultimate minute because of provide chain problems. He disregarded the idea and stated, “This isn’t how {hardware} works. Those designs are set lengthy upfront. In truth, from what I’ve heard, the flat-edge watch designs may well be reputable leaks, however they’re subsequent yr’s designs. That’s how a ways upfront Apple works on {hardware} — they have been already within the complicated phases of designing the 2022 Apple Watches months in the past.”

An afternoon prior to the release match, Bloomberg’s iandroid.eu Gurman famous in his publication that “whilst the iPhone gained’t be seeing any momentous design adjustments, the Apple Watch will. Search for a flat display and flat edges to compare the iPhone and iPad design…”. Gruman’s commentary used to be corroborated through different leakers with a good observe document together with Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and Jon Prosser who shared the (*7*)widely-circulated renders that had us hyped all alongside.(*4*)

Our Take

Someone with even a obscure working out of ways design and engineering works would facet with John Gruber. On this case, Apple isn’t designing a product from the bottom up. Designers running on what’s now being known as the Apple Watch Sequence 8 know what the Apple Watch Sequence 7 packs and seems like. the following era is an iteration of this current design.

Because the designers know what the internals and general exterior form might be, save for a couple of minor optimizations and adjustments, the {hardware} design will also be finalized faster. Having a able template (current product) and understanding what’s going to trade significantly cuts down what design parameters will also be modified, exponentially accelerating the design procedure.

(*14*)

Then again, Apple may just transform the design within the yr main as much as the Apple Watch Sequence 8 release because of quite a lot of components together with manufacturability constraints, consumer comments, inner {hardware} adjustments, and provide chain demanding situations.
