This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

The Apple Watch 7 is back on track for a September launch after the company resolved reported production issues, according to MacRumors, which cited analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. That clears the way for its rumored reveal during Apple’s iPhone 13 event on Sept. 14

The manufacturing difficulties were linked to fitting all of the smartwatch’s new components together and a lamination technique used to bring the display closer to the glass, according to Nikkei Asia and Bloomberg.

The Apple Watch 7 will start mass production in mid-September, to ship later in the month, Kuo reportedly said in a note.

Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
