Two new Macs, 'Apple Watch Series 7' pop up in regulatory filings

Ahead of any announcement from Apple, the Eurasian Economic Commission has added details for two new Mac models, plus the "Apple Watch Series 7."




Apple devices have to be registered in the EEC regulatory database before they can be sold in that territory, so a listing there is always an early sign of a release. It is not a certainty, nor is there a typical timescale between listing and launch.

However, typically an EEC entry will be only weeks ahead of an Apple launch. The database is also extremely concise, with no more than an internal Apple model number, and the briefest of descriptions.

In this case, there are 19 "new" entries in the database, but 17 are previously-released models that need to be re-listed with new operating systems from Apple imminent. The two unknown "Apple brand laptop personal computers," have numbers A2442 and A2485.

They are listed as running "macOS 12."

At the same time, the EEC database has listed six previously unknown devices as "personal wearable electronic devices of the Apple brand." They are models A2473, A2474, A2475, A2476, A2477, A2478, and are presumed to be the forthcoming "Apple Watch Series 7."

The Apple Watch entries also confirm that these models run watchOS 8. So do a total of 26 new wearables listed in the database, but again, most are existing devices that are re-registered because of their new software.

Similarly, a total of 42 "new" iPhones have been registered in the latest update to the database. However, all 42 are reissues with the addition of iOS 15.

The updated entries were first spotted by French site Consomac, which speculates the new Macs may be M1X models.

    Glad to hear there will be a 16" MBP. M1X ASi. Just looked up the current model identifiers and it looks like the other is an updated 13" MBP.

    Still waiting for a 30" ASi iMac to choose from before I decide.

    I’d quite like an Apple Watch that won’t die in a sauna.

    That’d be the thing, but in our current disappointing reality; no watch should be worn in sauna. 

    Your next comment, is there a sauna-gate or was that just a general question? I mean a sauna-gate would be hilarious.

    Then don’t push for right-to-repair where we go back to gaskets and screws.

    I have never pushed for right-to-repair. If you don’t like the way Apple builds kit then buy different kit. Apple isn’t the only game in town.

    Gaskets?  The things that are designed to prevent leakage?  That sounds like a pretty good idea.

    Nice.  Can't wait to buy the 6 for cheap from my coworker who always buys the latest and greatest apple whatever.  i'm always a year behind but I save 80-90% as he just practically gives it away to me for lunch or something.  My coworker and others like him are the reason I invest in their stock.  :D
