iwatch concept

Since Apple isn’t expected to unveil any new products over the summer all eyes are now on the fall. The company has announced new hardware in the fall over the past few years so there’s every reason to believe that it might do the same this time around as well. What it will unveil though is a subject of much debate. A new report published in Japan claims that both the iPhone 6 and iWatch will be launched in October.

The report comes shortly after multiple news outlets reported that the first wearable device from Apple is due this October. Apparently the company is scheduling an event in October where it will unveil the elusive iWatch. This is actually the first time we’re hearing that the iPhone 6 might make an appearance at that event as well.

Japanese news service Nikkei reports that the iWatch will be powered by iOS and will have a curved touchscreen display. Its also said to have sensors for health and fitness related data monitoring. The data might then be integrated into the newly unveiled Healthkit application.

The iWatch production is expected to hover around three to five million units in the first month. Previous reports suggest that Apple expects strong demand for its first wearable device after it hits the market. Even though the company hasn’t confirmed future plans, its CEO Tim Cook has said multiple times that Apple is going to enter new product categories in 2014.

As always, Apple is not commenting on any rumors or speculation.
