The Apple iWatch is expected to launch in September, along with the new iPhone 6 and the latest version of Apple’s mobile OS, Apple iOS 8.
According to a recent report, the Apple iWatch has now entered production, and Apple have apparently started producing small numbers of the Apple iWatch using SiPs.
SiPs stands for system in package modules, which is a number of integrated circuits that are wrapped up in an enclosed package, this is designed for smaller electronic devices, and SiPS are used in devices like MP3 players.
The SiPs is made up of a range of components, which include the CPU, DRAM and flash memory, this means that the internal hardware on a device takes up less space that a PCB would, which would be ideal for the Apple iWatch.
Apple are expected to release two different sizes of the Apple iWatch, one with a 1.3 inch display for women and the other with a 1.7 inch display for men.
The device is said to come with a flexible display, and fitness tracking will apparently play a major part in the iWatch, this is something that will feature heavily in Apple iOS 8, as we have already seen.
Apple are also said to be working together with Nike on some fitness features for the Apple iWatch, exactly what this will be remains to be seen.
We are also expecting the Apple iWatch to feature a sapphire display, and we expect it will feature a circular design, similar to the Moto 360 rather than a square or rectangular design like the Samsung Gear.
