Apple’s speculated foray into the wearable devices category – the iWatch – has been touted as the next big thing from the Cupertino company.
The latest rumors surrounding the iWatch come out of Korea, where sources indicate that Apple will produce different models for each gender – a 1.7-inch for men, and a 1.3-inch for women. This takes after the traditional design approach for watchmakers have been following for centuries, and it makes sense for there to be a larger and more robust model for men, and a smaller, more elegant variant for women.
According to the Korea Herald, the iWatch could roll out as early as the end of this year, but that’s probably hoping for too much. Or is it? With supply shortages of the new iPad mini with Retina display all but confirmed by Apple, they certainly could use something to ensure a strong holiday season, and Apple’s first wearable would be just the thing. Nevertheless, this contradicts initial reports we heard in August of a late 2014 release for the iWatch.
David Hseih, Vice President of DisplaySearch for Greater China, revealed Apple’s iWatch plans today at a conference in Taiwan. It’s also speculated that Apple has delayed the development of their new Apple televisions to focus on wearable devices.
With smartwatches still in their infancy, many are hoping that Apple will lead the charge in innovation. Let’s see if it will deliver – and when.
