Although Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 7 at the iPhone event last month, Apple didn’t give customers a date to order the device. The good news is that Apple has finally committed to a date and according to previous rumors, it looks like pre-orders will go live on October 8th.
Apple also notes on its website that the watch itself will be available on October 15th, the week after. So if you don’t plan on pre-ordering them, you can always buy them in stores. However, according to Jon Prosser’s tweet, that could be tricky. Prosser claims that mass production only started a month ago, which means that initial inventory will be “very limited”.
Pre-orders for the Apple Watch Series 7 will start on Friday, but it will be difficult for you to get one. 👀
I was told that mass production started just under a month ago, so stocks are * very * limited.
If you want the new Apple Watch, get up bright and early on Friday.

This means that if you want to secure a unit right in front of the gate, you need to place a pre-order quickly, otherwise you may have to wait a while for your model to arrive. Plus, as some have pointed out, Apple has yet to mention how much the watch will cost. The company said it would start at $ 399, but that’s presumably for the smallest and cheapest model.
That means those who want the more expensive models with a larger display and higher quality materials will have to wait for the pre-orders to find out. It’s a bit strange, but with pre-orders starting this Friday, we probably won’t have to wait long to find out.
