Previous rumors about Apple’s upcoming smartwatch have suggested that the wearable could have a new square-edged design. However, a new leak now suggests that the Apple Watch Series 8 could look a lot like the Series 7.
The leak comes from Twitter user ShrimpApplePro (@VNchocoTaco) who shares an image showing what the next Apple Watch will look like. In a subsequent tweet in the thread, the user claims that the Apple Watch Series 8 will have the same design as the Series 7 and will not bring any new sensors either.

The images suggest we’ll still see the same rotating crown on the side of the watch, along with a button and microphone in between.
According to the report, there will be no titanium variant of the watch and instead we will see midnight, starlight, Product (RED), silver variants in the aluminum range and silver and graphite colors in the stainless steel range.
The user also claims that the Watch 8 will be available in 41mm and 45mm sizes and will be compatible with older bands and straps. We also learn that the Watch 8 will go into mass production later this month and will likely launch in time with the iPhone 14 series in September.
The report also mentions a new box package that looks like it’s tailored for security. The Apple Watch Series 8 box will reportedly have a seal made of stronger adhesive that will damage the box if you try to reseal an opened package.
