    Apple’s iWatch to be Released 3rd Quarter


    Apple's iWatch to be Released 3rd QuarterFor over a year, Apple has long been rumored to be preparing a smartwatch, dubbed “iWatch”, which will focus on health features and place Apple as one of the leaders in this still-emerging wearables category. According to sources, the company plans to finally launch the device sometime in the third quarter of this year, and it’s being reported that Apple will ship 65 million units in 2014. This could be another indication that the new Apple device will actually be a low-cost fitness tracking band or something similar, rather than a smartwatch.

    The manufacturer Quanta will be building the device, while TPK will supply touchscreens for the iWatch and Taiwan-based Richtek will supply some chips. The report also claims that Apple will design the processor that powers the iWatch, and it will outsource production of the chipset to Samsung.  Stay tuned for updates on the iWatch as we receive them.
