Macrumors confirmed that the new Apple Watch Series 7 uses a new S7 chip, although the CPU of S7 is the same as the S6 chip of Series 6.
So far, Apple provides the details of this new watches relatively small, and do not even publish specifications page for details on its website. However, Macrumors can confirm that Apple's currently disclosed several details about Series 7.
First, the Apple Watch Series 7 Series has indeed equipped with S7 names, Apple said that the S7 chip is in performance with Series 6 compared to the S5 chip in Apple Watch SE and Series 5, the S7 chip is higher than S5 chip 20%. .
As Steve Troughton-Smith pointed out, the CPU in the S7 chip has the same T8301 identifier as the CPU in the previous S6 chip, which explains why S7 is not changed relative to S6.
However, Apple Watch chips are not only CPUs, which also leads to Apple to give it a new name with the same performance.
This is no longer Apple to do this. For example, in Apple Watch Series 5, Apple includes a S5 chip, which is equipped with the same CPU as the previous generation, but adds a gyroscope.
As for internal storage, Apple Watch Series 7 is stored as 32GB, which is the same as 6 Series and SE models.
In terms of connection, the 7-Series includes the same Bluetooth 5.0 protocol as 6-Series, but is different from the 6-Series that the new Apple Watch series has built-in support for the North of China satellite navigation system.
S7 also includes a U1 chip, no significant improvement compared to the ultra-wide frequency chip in the iPhone 12 in the iPhone 12 last year.
