The KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has presented a new aspect in the recent report which gives us the possibility that the much hyped iWatch could be delayed to as late as 2015. According to Kuo, the most obvious reason for this delay is the possibility of bottlenecks in the production process and this is quite similar to what happened with the iPhone 6 5.5 inch version which is also most likely going to be delayed.
The report says:
“We reiterate our view that iWatch, as compared to existing products, and as Apple’s (US) first attempt at a wearable device, represents a much higher level of difficulty for the company as regards component and system design, manufacturing and integration between hardware and software. While we are positive on iWatch and believe that the advantages of the design and business model behind it are difficult to copy, we think, given the aforementioned challenges, that the launch could be postponed to 2015.”
As far as the Apple products and their releases are concerned, Kuo is taken a master and his word has always served as a well thought-over prophecy. In a previous report Kuo had mentioned that the iWatch would enter its mass production stage from late-September to late November and some components of the device were also detailed including a flexible AMOLED display, a sapphire coated display cover, higher waterproof standards, and new system-on-a-chip components. However, other reports including the one from ReCode have suggested that the iWatch is going to be announced in October this year.
