Apple Watch Series 7 model numbers A2473, A2473, A2475, A2476, A2477, and A2478 have received approval from the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC).
The listings show that these devices will be equipped with watchOS 8. In addition, Apple Macbook Pro models with model numbers A2442 and A2485 have also been approved by the EEC authority.
Apple announced the Apple Watch 6 and Watch SE models last year in September. With EEC certification in tow, it is likely that the Cupertino-based company may announce the new Watch 7 lineup with watchOS 8 in September. Unfortunately, the rumor mill is yet to reveal concrete information on the specs of the models in the Apple Watch Series 7.
Apple has recently seeded the fourth beta edition of the Watch OS 8 to developers. It is expected to come equipped with features that are said to be extensions of the iOS 15’s features. It will let users add keys for hotels, cars, home doors, and so on. Users in the US will also be able to add their IDs to Wallet. It is expected to arrive with an overhauled Home app, and there could be additions like Pilates and Taichi in the Workout app. The Breathe app will be called Mindfulness in the watchOS, and the Apple Watch will be able to measure respiratory rate while sleeping. For easier communication, the Messages app may come with features like scribble, dictation, GIFs, and emojis.
As mentioned above, two unknown Apple laptops with model numbers A2442 and A2485 have also received EEC certifications. These were found to be running on iOS 12. Speculations are rife that Apple is working on 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, and a redesigned MacBook Air. These laptops are expected to launch sometime later in 2022. Probably, the new MacBook Pro models may come equipped with the enhanced M1X chip.
