The next Apple Watch may be delayed due to manufacturing issues

According to separate reports from Nikkei and Bloomberg, the next Apple Watch is facing manufacturing problems, leading to a later release of the product than expected. The potential delay is reportedly due to complications in the new design of the smartwatch, which is rumored to include flat sides and a larger screen.

Sources told Nikkei that while small-scale production for the next Apple Watch had begun, it faced "serious challenges in reaching satisfactory production performance." Bloomberg reported similar details. Nikkei says production is now "temporarily halted" while Apple and its suppliers work to resolve manufacturing issues before finally mass production.

The new Apple Watch, expected to be called the Apple Watch Series 7, will get screen sizes increased to 41mm and 45mm (a 1mm bump from currently available options), a faster processor, and "a flatter display and edges". . Bloomberg will see the trail. Gurman reported this in his Power On newsletter on Sunday. While Gurman pointed out that the Series 7 "won't bring any major health upgrades until at least next year, Nikkei reports that the new watch" Like blood pressure measurement" will add new features.

Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 6 at an event last September, and the company is expected to hold another product event in September this year. Given these reported production challenges with the next Apple Watch, if Apple hosts a September event, it's likely the Apple Watch might not be an appearance.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
