Pre-orders for the Apple Watch Series 7 may be the only chance to get Apple’s new smartwatch in time for Christmas.
Perhaps the new Apple Watch Series 7 was the biggest disappointment of Apple’s presentation last September; the novelties are reduced to a new larger screen and greater resistance, leaving the same processor, the same sensors and the same design, despite what was rumored.
That doesn’t mean it won’t sell like bagels, of course. Something similar happened with the iPhone 13, and the initial demand was so high that orders were delayed a month on the day of launch. According to analysts at CCS Insight, the success of the iPhone 13, and problems meeting demand, indicate that getting an Apple Watch Series 7 can be even more difficult.
In fact, analysts predict that the supply of the new watch will be even fairer than that of the iPhone 13 and go so far as to warn: buyers who want a new Apple Watch should reserve it as soon as possible, to avoid the increase in demand for the season. Christmas . If we do not reserve and wait for the launch of the device on October 15, our watch may not reach us until next year.
To say that, analysts rely on a couple of clues. For starters, Apple did not announce the launch date of the Apple Watch Series 7 at the launch event, although it did announce the iPhone 13; In addition, the clock has not come out at the same time as the smartphone, which is usually the norm for devices presented at the same time.
That may indicate that Apple was not sure it would be able to launch the Watch Series 7 without problems, and that it needed a little more time to secure some ‘stock’. Like all technology companies, Apple is also suffering from a shortage of supplies due to a lack of chips; Tim Cook told investors last July that most of the production restrictions were similar to those of other manufacturers.
But that may not be the whole story; According to an article by Bloomberg , published before the presentation of the Watch Series 7, Apple has encountered some problems in production , due to the larger screen size and the new glass.
Be that as it may, if you are sure you want an Apple Watch Series 7, it is recommended that you be at the Apple store at 2:00 p.m.
