The Apple Watch Series 7 officially ditches the hidden diagnostic port

The Apple Watch’s diagnostic port has been a mysterious the purposes of the wearable lineup because it firstly simulation, but the new Series 7 officially trenches the six-pin port entirely.

First noted by MacRumors , the lack of a port can be seen when you remove the bottom strap from an Apple Watch Series 7 — the company has removed the conceal sheet and the port behind it. Intended for internal used to support diagnostics, the port wasn’t officially accepted on Apple’s website or documentation. But the diagnostic port briefly inkling at the possibility of expanding the Apple Watch with hardware accessories.

The most famous of these was the Reserve Strap, which attempted to use the port for extending the battery life of the Apple Watch by incorporating extra batteries into a specially made band that would slit instantly into the diagnostic port. The port actually offered faster accusing than Apple’s own magnetic cable, too.

Unfortunately, Apple promptly blocked that capability and Reserve Strap( together with virtually every other strive at harnessing the port for beneficial roles ). For the precede life span of the Apple Watch, it remained handy for its intended purpose: diagnostics for internal Apple use and repairs.

Of course, Apple still needs a way to do diagnostics on the Apple Watch, and appears to be replacing the mysterious port with an even more inscrutable 60.5 GHz wireless module that pairs with a magnetic dock capable of neighbourhood data movement for internal abuse. That’s led to some speculation that Apple is using the Series 7 as a test bed for a future portless iPhone that could use same technology to supersede cables for connecting to personal computers. But if years of the useless diagnostic port have taught us anything, it’s that sometimes there’s no greater represent or utility to be found in proprietary diagnostic tools.
