The Apple Watch Series 7 was announced at a special Apple event in September, along with the iPhone 13 lineup and new iPad models. However, unlike its brethren, the Apple Watch Series 7 is not yet available to customers - and Apple has yet to say when it will arrive. According to John Prosser, the next-generation Apple Watch is expected to arrive in stores in October.
On Tuesday, Prosser shared a report based on "multiple sources familiar with the release," which told him that the Apple Watch Series 7 will be available to customers in mid-October. The Apple blogger also said that pre-orders could begin "as early as next week."
During its September presentation, Apple didn't say exactly when the Apple Watch Series 7 would arrive in stores. Instead, the company said they will be available "later this fall" and "by the end of the year," according to Apple's website. Since fall in the U.S. ends Dec. 21, it's almost impossible to predict when the Series 7 will be officially released.
Interestingly, Apple's longtime partner, Hermès, seems to confirm Prosser's information. The company, which will again offer its own Apple Watch models, told a customer that pre-orders for the Series 7 will begin Oct. 8, 2021. It's unclear whether this is a legitimate response, but it matches the timeline Prosser reported.
