Unreleased Macs, Apple Watches show up in new Economic Commission database

As noted by MacRumors, unreleased Macs and Apple Watches are mentioned in new filings in the Eurasian Economic Commission database. They almost certainly refer to the upcoming Apple Watch Series 7, 14-inch MacBook Pro, and 16-inch MacBook Pro.

The Apple Watch Series 7

The Apple Watch Series 7 — which will probably arrive in September or October — may feature a smaller “S7” chip, according to a report by DigiTimes (a subscription is required to read the article). This would offer more space for a larger battery or other components. There are various other rumors about the next generation smartwatch. Here are some of them:

° It will see a slight redesign and be offered in a green hue.

° It will (d’uh) sport a faster processor.

° It will sport a “new lamination technique” that raises the watch’s display closer to the top cover.

° It will borrow updated ultra-wideband technology from the Apple AirTag key finder.

Upcoming MacBook Pro updates

The upcoming Mac laptop upgrades — expected before the holidays — are expected to have a major redesign, run on Apple Silicon (successors to the “M1” chip), and sport mini-LED displays. The mini-LED displays will likely use 10,000 mini-LEDs and will be comparable to OLED screens. This should result in good wide color gamut performance, high contrast and HDR, and local dimming.
