Yesterday the company announced the Apple Watch Series 7 smartwatch, which, contrary to rumors, has not received a completely new design. Moreover, the Apple Watch Series 7 received the exact same processor as last year’s Apple Watch Series 6.
During the presentation, Apple did not say a word about the performance of the Apple Watch Series 7. Usually, the company claims that its new devices are faster or more energy efficient, but this topic was not discussed on stage. On the official Apple website, there is no mention at all of the platform on which the Apple Watch Series 7 is built.
Developer Steve Troughton-Smith confirmed based on the latest version of Xcode (a platform that allows developers to create apps for Apple devices) that Apple Watch Series 7 has the same processor as last year’s Apple Watch Series 6.
Both Apple Watch Series 7 and Apple Watch Series 6 are equipped with the “t8301” processor, which is the codename for the processor in the Apple S6 SiP. Apple Watch does not have the usual printed circuit board; instead, it uses the so-called “system-in-a-box” (SiP).
While the iPhone 13 and iPad mini 6 will go on sale next week, Apple said the Apple Watch Series 7 will be available later this year without any further details.
