In its new Watch Series 7 smartwatch, Apple has dispensed with a secret port that for years it kept hidden in each version of the device, with no clearly defined purpose.
It is a 6-pin connector that was at the point where the lower part of the strap connected to the device. Apparently, at never be tested by the consumer, there was never information about it on the Apple website or in the documentation about the watch.
The fact is that the connector, whose absence in the new edition was pointed out by MacRumors, had late maintenancesuch as diagnosing or restoring the watchOS operating system using a wired connection.
The port also involved an experimental effort to incorporate additional ‘hardware’ accessories, such as Reserve Strap, in order to extend the battery life. However, the project was closed in 2016, shortly after starting.
The disappearance of the mysterious connector could also mean that maintenance functions are transferred to a new secret module for data transmission.
According to documentation submitted by Apple to the US Federal Communications Commission, the module allows the wireless transfer data with a frequency of 60.5 GHz, but its operation would be reserved for the internal use of the company.
The Apple Watch Series 7 was presented on September 14 at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino (California, USA). The new watch, which will begin to be marketed October 15, offers a larger screen, is waterproof and guarantees greater protection against shocks and dirt.
