Apple Store is currently closed in preparation for Apple Watch Series 7 preorders

Apple Store is currently closed in preparation for Apple Watch Series 7 preorders. The Online Apple Store was taken offline late Thursday as Apple prepared to begin accepting preorders for the Apple Watch Series 7, the company’s next-generation wearable unveiled in September.

Apple’s online storefront was pulled offline shortly after midnight Pacific, around five hours before Apple Watch Series 7 preorders were slated to begin on Friday.

Apple Watch Series 7 was announced on Sept. 14 during Apple’s “California Streaming” event. It boasts a redesigned design highlighted by 41mm and 45mm casings that accommodate bigger Retina displays with 20% more screen area than Apple Watch Series 6. Apple is using the more screen real estate by introducing new software features such as a QWERTY keyboard with QuickPath typing and larger user interface graphics.

Internal components are believed to be derived from the Series 6, while a new “S7” system-in-package may debut with sensor, system control, and energy efficiency upgrades. The core CPU is expected to be identical to last year’s S6 chip.

For 2021, no new health monitoring hardware is provided, though Series 7 does have a heart rate sensor, blood oxygen sensor, ECG, and internal sensors for fall detection and sleep monitoring.

Apple Watch Series 7 is available in aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium cases, similar to previous year. Aluminum is available in blue, green, Midnight (black), Starlight (white), and (Product)RED, while stainless steel comes in graphite, silver, and gold. The titanium variant is now available in Space Black and raw titanium finishes.
