What you need to know
Apple Watch Series 7 goes on sale tomorrow but some people already have one.
Some photos show the difference between the old displays and the new ones is bigger than we might have thought.
Maybe this is a bigger upgrade than we realized.
With Apple Watch Series 7 set to go on sale tomorrow, we know that some people already have them on their wrists. While early reviews have been solid, most say that the upgrade from an Apple Watch Series 6 isn’t one people should bother with. Some new photos might change some minds.
Apple’s new watches increase their case size from 40mm and 44mm to 41mm and 45mm. That also means that the displays have grown, too. Apple has re-jigged the bezels to give us more screen real estate and while some reviews say the difference is minimal, some photos appearing online seem to show the opposite. Some photos make the difference look like night and day.

Pretty impressive, right?
All of those shots appear to be comparing a 40mm watch with a 41mm model, but you can expect similar increases moving from 44mm to 45mm, too.
These new watches are set to be the best Apple Watches Apple has ever made, even without the increased display size. Improved battery charging speeds and tougher screens are decent upgrades on their own. But it’s the larger display that stands out the most — and now I can’t wait to test one of these things out for myself tomorrow!
Happy Apple Watch Series 7 day-1, people!
