On the Apple Buying Advice site, Josh Centers cautioned against cellular Apple Watches, but TidBITS readers were quick to point out that many people need cellular connectivity.
Apple has released watchOS 8.1.1 to address charging problems with the Apple Watch Series 7.
Apple says that the Apple Watch Series 7 will be available to order on 8 October 2021 and will be in stores starting 15 October 2021. Whether or not it’s worth upgrading to depends on what Apple Watch model you have now.
Rumors suggested the Apple Watch was due for a major physical design, but the Series 7 turned out to look much like its predecessor—albeit with a few physical and software changes. Also, watchOS 8 gets some fitness improvements aimed largely at cyclists.
