Yesterday we heard a rumor that the new Apple iWatch would come with a round design, the device is said to feature a similar design to a traditional wrist watch, like the Moto 360, although the profile of the iWatch is said to be slimmer than that of Motorola’s smartwatch.
Now according to a recent report, the Apple iWatch will feature wireless charging, and Apple is apparently using a company called Luxshare for the wireless charging components for their new smartwatch.
So far we have heard numerous rumors about the Apple iWatch, the company is said to be making 15 to 20 million units of their new smartwatch before the end of the year.
Apple are expected to release two versions of the iWatch, one with a 1.7 inch display for men, the other with a 1.3 inch display for women.
The device is said to come with a range of health and fitness tracking features built in, Apple have apparently be working with Nike on some new health and fitness tracking apps for iOS 8, and these could also be available in their new smartwatch.
Apple iOS 8 is said to have two major new features, a HealthBook app for health and fitness tracking, these features will apparently also be available on the iWatch, the second major new feature is home automation.
We can expect Apple to integrate the new Apple iWatch into their new home automation platform, as well as the new iPhone 6, and we are expecting to find out more details about Apple home automation at WWDC 2014 next week.
The new Apple smartwatch is rumored to launch in September along with the new 4.7 inch iPhone 6, a 5.5 inch iPhone 6 is rumored to launch in October or November.
