Apple Watch Series 7 Has Resolved Production Issues | Digital Trends
For the first time, a low-injection pressure overmolding was used to protect the inner components. A new OLED production line was used to reduce costs and improve efficiency. A longer supply chain may have contributed to the delays because of the addition of new suppliers like LG Display, Young Poong, and Jabil.
“We expect Jabil to start mass production of Apple Watch 7 panel modules in mid-September,” said Kuo.
Kuo’s note is optimistic about the future of Apple Watch shipments and mentioned “new health-management features” for the Series 8. This is encouraging news for Apple users as Gurman said there would be “no chance” of any additional health features for the Series 7.
The Apple Watch Series 7 displays will be larger than previous models. Currently, they come in 40mm and 44mm sizes. The new series should be 41mm and 45mm. Apple will release its new product lineup at 10 a.m. PT on Tuesday, September 14 and you can watch it live.
