Almost everyone expects Apple to jump into the wearable device market but Cupertino itself hasn’t even dropped so much of a hint about its future plans. For over a year we have been hearing rumors about the iWatch, a smartwatch that Apple is supposedly working on. Multiple news outlets are now reporting that the first wearable device from Apple might be unveiled this October. Apparently the company is going to conduct a special event that month.
You might be one of the many people who might have wondered once when iWatch is going to be released. Apple has no answer for us. Re/code hears from people familiar with the company’s plans that Apple hopes to schedule an event in October to show off its first wearable device. The Nikkei published a similar report, adding that Apple is so confident about this device that it expects to product three to five million units every month.
Recent reports suggest that the iWatch will play nicely with Healthkit, a fitness information gathering application that Apple showed off at WWDC 2014 last week. iWatch itself is rumored to come with multiple sensors that would aid users in collecting vital information about their health and fitness.
As far as the smartwatch is concerned, some believe that it might have a curved OLED display and will be offered in different sizes for men and women. Some of the rumors we have heard might be a bit far-fetched but that hasn’t stopped Apple fans from being hopeful about its first wearable device.
Can the company’s plans change between now and October 2014? Absolutely. Nothing is written in stone at this point in time.
