iWatch Delayed says Analyst Report


Apple iWatch Release Date

Expected to launch this fall, Apple’s iWatch smartwatch may be delayed, a new note obtained by MacRumors from KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo reveals. The well-connected insider who has offered many accurate details about unreleased Apple devices now says that mass-production for the iWatch is set for November. Previously, the same Kuo said that the smartwatch would hit mass-production in late September.

Apparently, the development of the iWatch is a lot more complex than initially expected, which is why Apple may be delaying the launch of the wearable device.

“We believe developing the hardware and OS of iWatch will be a much more difficult task than for Apple’s existing products,” Kuo wrote.

The analyst says the iWatch packs new technologies including a flexible AMOLED display, sapphire glass cover, a smaller form factor and better waterproof standards than any other Apple devices. Furthermore, redesigning iOS for the iWatch may be a more difficult challenge for the company.

The iWatch is expected to offer advanced health and fitness features, with Apple having already unveiled its Health iOS 8 app and HealthKit developer pack that will help Apple and developers connect the iWatch with other iOS devices for the purpose of gathering all sorts of health data.

Apple is expected to launch a slew of new devices this year, including new iPhone and iPad versions, new Macs, and the iWatch, alongside new software including iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, although release dates for any of these products aren’t officially available at this time.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
