In a note to clients — as noted by MacRumors — analyst Ming-Chi Kuo weighs in on the Apple Watch Series 7. The update of the smart watch will likely ship in September or October.
Look for a significant redesign
Kuo says it could feature the first significant redesign in years. For instance, the goal is to use double-sided System in Package (SiP) tech to reduce the size of the processor. Conveniently, his would make room for a larger battery. And longer battery life is on the wish list of most Apple Watch users.
