Rumor: 'Apple Watch Series 7' to feature flat edges, green color option [u]
The "Apple Watch Series 7" could feature a new squared-off design similar to the iPhone 12 or iPad Pro, and may also come in a green color akin to AirPods Max.
Prolific leaker Jon Prosser shared the "Apple Watch Series 7" rumors in the latest episode of the Genius Bar podcast with Sam Kohl (via Apple Track). Details were scarce, though Prosser hinted that additional information could be arriving in the future.
Prosser called the refresh a "slight redesign," while Kohl said that the "Apple Watch Series 7" would have a design language similar to Apple's other recent products.
"I think it makes sense to redesign it to fall in line with Apple's other products, Kohl said, adding that the edges of the new wearable are similar to Apple's recent iPad models.
The rumor lines up with predictions aired by well-connected TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in September 2020. At the time, Kuo said that a significant Apple Watch form factor change was in the works and could debut as soon as 2021.
Additionally, the two podcast hosts hinted that the new Apple Watch would come in a green colorway similar to the one available on Apple's AirPods Max.
Update: Prosser published renders of the supposed next-generation Apple Watch in a YouTube video on Wednesday.
