Apple Watch Series 7 vs Series 6: full comparaison


Apple Watch Series 7 is official, or almost. Yes, because Tim Cook has 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 autumn, and apart from the fundamental information – display, resistance, compatibility with existing straps and fitness and functionality – we have not yet had the opportunity to go into detail to understand what it is – and how much important – the generational leap over Series 6.

It is 9to5Mac that allows us to have a more precise picture on the wearable device, thanks to an internal document in which Apple compares the 2020 and 2021 models in a scheme that is extremely useful for us to have a more comprehensive 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 in terms of performance it should change very little. On the other hand, some components could change, considering the fact that on the Series 7 the display is larger and that the hardware is called to support it accordingly.
