Apple Watch Series 7 vs previous generation: the differences

Apple Watch Series 7 is official … or almost. Yes, because Tim Cook & C. have only given us a smattering of what the new generation of the Cupertino smartwatch will be. To have it on the wrist we will have to wait this fall , and apart from the basic information – display, resistance, compatibility with existing straps and fitness (and not) functionality – we have not yet had the opportunity to go into detail to understand what – and how important – the generational leap compared to Series 6.

It is 9to5Mac to allow us to have a more precise picture of the wearable device, this thanks to an internal document in which Apple compares the models 2020 And 2021 in a scheme which is extremely useful for us to have a more exhaustive picture. First of all, what has already emerged in the past hours is confirmed: although the SiP is new – S7 – the CPU is the same for the two models , therefore very little should change in terms of performance. On the other hand, some components could change, considering the fact that on Series 7 the display is larger and that the hardware is called to support it accordingly.
