Thanks to the larger display on the Apple Watch Series 7, users can now use a full keyboard right on their wrist. Users will be able to tap or slide across letters to type, in which case watchOS will use "machine learning to predict the word you’re typing."


The new Apple Watch Series 7, which comes in larger 41mm and 45mm sizes, features larger displays compared to the Series 6 thanks to smaller bezels.

Alongside a full keyboard, Apple says it has redesigned the buttons and menus across watchOS to make it easier to tap on the larger displays. Due to reported production issues, the Apple Watch Series 7 will be available later this fall, with no specific date currently given.

Maybe next time they will include real buttons, like with numbers on them, so you can calculate tips?

How embarrassing..will not be upgrading this year unfortunately. The screen size will make very little difference to a lot of people IMO. I made the mistake of upgrading to the 6 from the 5 and I will not be doing this again. ?
I upgraded from the 5 to the 6 because I got a good deal, but it want a huge upgrade, not is this. Pretty minimal. I’ll stick with my 6.

I finally turned on swipe on my iPhone and I am starting to get good at it. Wondering if the experience is as good on the watch? :rolleyes:
