Regarding the increased screen size of the Apple Watch Series 7 generation, Apple’s vice president of product marketing just explained the engineering challenges in this regard.It is known that if they want to achieve this goal without greatly increasing the size of the case, they have to completely redesign the watch screen, the screen protection layer, and many details inside and outside the case.In the end, the engineering team reduced the Series 7 frame from 3mm in the Series 6 era to 1.7mm, which is also the most significant change in the new product.
MacRumorsIt is pointed out that the Apple Watch Series 7 originally scheduled to be released in September has been postponed to October, and it is rumored thatAppleIt takes more time to get a complicated screen design.
The reason for increasing the screen size of the watch is because Apple has found a way to do this without affecting other Apple Watch functions.
Such as touch sensor andYOU AREPanel integration allows the overall height of Apple Watch and the size of the case to be basically the same.
The redesigned Apple Watch Series 7 screen means a major technological innovation. The benefits of an enlarged screen are obvious to users, but only if it does not affect any other experience, such as aesthetics, wearing comfort, battery life, or frequency compatibility.
In addition, Apple’s vice president of interface design, Alan Dye, said that this update aims to “make the user experience clearer and easier to access.” But only with the increase in size, they need to implement hundreds of subtle changes to the UI.
We know that this is an opportunity to optimize the entire experience design, so we have been considering remaking every element in the past few years, implementing hundreds of extremely small but important and influential changes to make the watch The UI can be more coordinated and easier to use with the new screen design.
For a long time, text input on Apple Watch has been a huge challenge. But in Apple Watch Series 7, we have ushered in an important achievement, it is the QWERTY screen keyboard.
Dye added that the company has always wanted to provide a QWERTY input experience for watches. To this end, they removed the border around the keys to reduce the sense of cramps.
At the same time, Apple conveyed to users the psychological expectation that “input accuracy is not so important” because the company chose to use machine learning technology to correct what users actually want to input.
Looking to the future, Apple plans to further improve the user experience of Apple Watch and continue to innovate in the areas of information display and reduction of space waste.
