Less than a week before Apple’s “Far Out” special conference: the event that will focus on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro announcement, Apple will also update its entire Apple Watch lineup. Until then, the existing supply of Apple Watch Series 7 and Apple Watch SE is rapidly dwindling.
Apple’s online store shows that most versions of the Apple Watch Series 7 won’t ship before launch next week and only a few models are currently available for delivery, most of which can be picked up in offline stores. By the way, did you know that Apple plans to start showing ads on Maps next year?
In addition, the Apple Watch SE is also experiencing scarce supply issues, though not as severe as the Apple Watch S7. Some models of the Apple Watch SE are not available for delivery or pickup at an Apple Store.
Typically, existing Apple products are out of stock as much as possible before a new product launches, especially with supply shortages at this stage. The new Apple Watch S8 series is expected to be available for pre-order on September 9, with the first orders starting to ship a week later on September 16.
Judging by earlier revelations, Apple will unveil three new smartwatches at its conference next week – the Apple Watch Series 8, the new Apple Watch SE and the new Apple Watch Pro. Apple Watch S8 seems to be the main change in the addition of a new body temperature sensor.
The Apple Watch Pro could be a big upgrade. The new Apple Watch will have a larger 47mm dial, a 1.99-inch display, better battery life, and a focus on extreme sports.
As at the time of this article, very little is known about the new Apple Watch SE and the current price starts at about $318. Bloomberg previously reported that the device is unlikely to feature the larger design of the Apple Watch S7.
