    That's weird, all the apps I've installed on my S7 are working fine.

    Even the developer of PCalc had the issue and when he installed the app with Xcode on the S7 it seemed to fix the app icon, seems when the effected app is downloaded from Apple the icons on some apps are getting stripped out. He said it doesn't seem to effect the S6 and older but just the S7. Seems like this is a bug on Apples end and if it is up to them to fix it server side they may have to reissue the effected apps as a regular app update.

    Just picked up my 45mm starlight cellular S7 from John Lewis (ordered yesterday morning) now restoring from backup etc.

    Really like the way the colour shifts from gold to silver when the light hits it, the size is a nice upgrade too.

    Cheers all

    Nice little surprise today..DPD delivering my watch..

    must say, it looks so sick in the blue, it’s a lot more subtle than the photos suggest, but I love it..

    old watch sold, an just getting into gear with the S7, only thing though is I shelled out another 20 notes to get a USB C plug for the fast charging.

    Does the blue of the watch match the blue from the iPhone 12 or are they still different?

    Is there anyway to see all the strap colours when they are not in stock? Even if I choose a different colour strap not my preferred choice the delivery is stating Mid December!

    So Apple did end up reissuing the affected watch apps. Apparently this bug only occurred on the 45mm version. My broken icons now work fine :)

    First Apple Watch 7 45mm Nike version (thought the strap would reduce any sweat)

    I can’t believe just over a year ago I was still on Android , now I am a complete convert. It’s all so seamless!

    I ordered a black Titanium 45mm S7 with an expected delivery of mid-November. Last Apple watch I had was the S3 so expecting a big jump.

    Same as me then, would have expected to get it faster from Apple though, some people seem to be getting them in a few days from Currys and the likes...

    I had been given a mac at work which started my relationship with Apple. Been upgraded to the M1 MacBooks a few months ago. In the end just got sick of Android. I would always get the flagship Samsung phones and find the battery life and camera (in non native apps ) to be much worse than the Apple equivalent . I wanted my phone to be a great phone / communication device primarily and for it to be an simple experience, Apple nail that . Now I have made the switch I wouldn’t go back . Never had a smart watch but really enjoying the 7!

    :D

    My watch has been shipped with no notifications from Apple so you might want to check your order - you might find a nice surprise :)

    I cancelled my 45mm 7 when I realised in the Apple Store app there's a size comparison, the 45 is huge, so I binned that off and went to order the 41, until I saw that the expected date was the end of November beginning of December, so going to get it from Amazon for next day delivery...

    Are you male or female?

    Generally the larger size suits males and the smaller suits females.

    My wrists/forearms are on the smaller side of average for a male and the smaller Apple Watch looked far too small when I tried it on in a store. It wasn’t even like it was toss up between the two, it was obviously far too small.
