The Apple iWatch is rumored to come with a curved display and also solar charging, the solar charging will apparently be built into the device’s display.
According to a recent report by The Korea Herald, the Apple iWatch will use stepped battery technology from LG, the battery is one of the manufacturing issues that Apple have apparently faced with the iWatch.
Stepped batteries are similar to normal lithium-ion batteries, although they have an extra ridge on the back that increases the capacity of the battery.
LG’s stepped batteries apparently give around 16 percent more capacity than their standard batteries, so this could be a good solution for the Apple iWatch.
We have heard a number of different rumors about the Apple iWatch, one is that the device will be used to control home automation, another is that health monitoring will be a large feature in Apple’s new wearable gadget.
We are expecting Apple to launch the iWatch later in the year, the device is rumored to launch alongside the new iPhone 6 and Apple iOS 8, this is expected to launch some time in September.
Apple are expected to release two different versions of the Apple iWatch, with different display sizes, one will apparently feature a 1.7 inch display for men, the other a 1.5 inch display for women.
As soon as we get some more information on the new iWatch and some actual photos of the device, we will let you guys know.
