Apple’s sapphire-covered ‘iWatch’ to enter mass production in November
Ming-Chi Kuo is a noted analyst and his findings related to the upcoming Apple products are always found very credible. In the past he has always provided very accurate information about Apple’s future plans and his recent report has stated that the upcoming iWatch is going to enter the mass production stage in November. Previously, Kuo had suspected that the mass production would begin in September but that turned out to be a little away from this newest discovery. He wrote in his report “We have pushed back our estimated time of iWatch mass production from late-September to mid-/ late- November. We also lower our forecast of iWatch 2014 shipments by 40% to 3mn units.”
This push back he says is because of the complex hardware and software engineering n this first generation Apple product category. In this report he has also highlighted a few features which we should be expecting from the iWatch including the flexible AMOLED display, the sapphire coated display cover, the increased waterproof standards and the new upgraded system-on-a-chip components. We have already been told about the sapphire glass and AMOLED display in the previous reports which have leaked on the iWatch but the waterproof feature has recently emerged in reports and it totally makes sense to have a wrist gadget protected from water.
