Apple has confirmed this week that the Apple Watch Series 7 shall become available in stores on October 15, with pre-orders starting this Friday, October 8.
Be warned though, that if you are planning to purchase the latest Apple Watch unit, know that availability might be very low due to limited supplies.
According to YouTuber and avid Apple leaker Jon Prosser, the mass production of the Apple Watch Series 7 began just last September. This apparently resulted in really low inventory counts, meaning there won’t be a lot of units available for immediate shipment come next week.
Prosser has reported last week that the Apple Watch Series 7 pre-orders may begin anytime on the first week of October, with the product hitting stores in mid-October – this statement proved to be true.
Apple Watch Series 7 was one of the items announced at the Apple Event on September, but the tech giant never divulged when the watch would become available, until today. It has been rumored that Apple faced some difficulties in the production of the new Apple Watch models, which might be the reason why the release in stores have been delayed.
Apple has done some changes to this year’s Apple Watch, including an improved IP6X certification for dust resistance, a bigger display with more rounded corners, and WR50 water resistance.
Apple Watch Series 7 will come in five aluminum case finishes, including a new green, blue and red option, while the stainless steel options come in graphite, silver and gold. The Cupertino company will also sell the Apple Watch edition in titanium and black titanium, with the starting price at $399 in the United States.
Apple announced that the Apple Watch Series will be available in over 60 countries in the first phases of launch, including Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, Russia, South Korea, UAE, UK, and the US.
Pre-orders shall begin at 5am PDT on Friday, October 8.
