The iWatch could help tap into China and make messaging even easier
While the iWatch might be one of the most anticipated products Apple has ever released, but the problem remains that we still don’t know much about what to expect. The health tracking features have been rumored for months, but now there are reports that a new voice messaging App might be what they use to make the watch a success. Analysts are already expecting 40 million units are going to be sold in the first month, but that could rise depending on the pricing scheme that they set in place.
According to reports, Tim Cook visited China and noticed how many people were sending voice messages, rather than texts. He now hopes to convert that same kind of technology into a new wearable device. Rather than having to pull out their phone to send a message, they will simply press a button, speak into their watch, and swipe the screen. Messaging couldn’t be easier.
This kind of voice memo is already available in iOS 7, although it only dictates messages that are then sent as a text message. That won’t have to be the case in iOS 8, if reports are to be believed. Especially in China, this could be a huge move that helps them take over a market that they already have a large share of.
We are still waiting for an official announcement, however, and it is expected to be coming within the next few months. All signs point to a 2014 release, so stay tuned for what we can begin to expect from an official product.
