Back in September, Apple announced that Apple Watch will launch in early-2015. In a surprising move earlier this month, Tim Cook mentioned it’s expected to ship customers by April, but no exact launch date was announced.
According to a new report from MacRumors, Apple is asking high profile developers to get their Apple Watch apps ready by mid-February.
Although the features Apple Watch will come with are quite useful, the availability of apps can make it even better for the platform as well as for the users, which is one of the main reasons Apple want developers to get the apps ready before the official availability of the smartwatch.
Since Apple Watch will support Apple Pay as well, the company is even asking Apple Pay partners to make an iOS app with WatchKit support that should be ready for prime time by February 12th.
There’s a possibility that Apple wants to test apps on the watch internally before it launches the device to make sure they work fine, and no bugs are present. Apple Watch isn’t going to be cheap, there are different editions starting at $399. We’ll update you if we get to hear anything more about the Apple Watch.
