Over the past few years we have been hearing all kinds of rumors that Apple is working on a wearable device, the Apple iWatch. The company itself is staying mum on the subject so we aren’t really sure what the situation is. We are all trying to find out the details. Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple analyst at KGI Securities has some news, and says in a new report that its possible Apple may push the iWatch release back to next year. The problem is with the manufacturing process.
In fact, a report Kuo released way back in July claimed that Apple would start mass producing the Apple iWatch in November with a possible launch in 2015. Sure, analyst predictions are hit or miss, but many believe that Kuo has an accurate track report regarding Apple. So while we don’t know for sure, it’s a good bet that this is accurate. So I wouldn’t expect it very soon.
Apparently the iWatch’s component and system design is giving them some trouble. The integration between hardware and software is proving to be a challenge. Hopefully they will overcome the difficulties. Apple remains completely silent on wearable devices even though some of its rivals are already off and running. The iWatch is expected to focus on fitness and be priced between $249 and $299. When we know more, you will know.
