Rumors about the iWatch hints that the Apple wearable will be arriving several months ahead of its release date and it will also bear a higher price tag in comparison to the Android smart watch.
There were rumors about Apple will be launching its wearable, iWatch along with the iPhone 6 launch which it had scheduled on September 9. The iPhone 6 could be ready for sale in a fortnight from the unveiling; this cannot be said about the iWatch. Rumors now indicate that the iWatch could see a release sometime in 2015. This is possible because it adds credence to the earlier rumors which talked about production starting in November and the product hitting the shelves by the first quarter of 2015.
The reasons for this delay are not clear but there are speculations that it could be because of production and supply issues. The iPhone 6 is also encountering some manufacturing bugs and experts are predicting shortages when Apple finally introduces its next iteration of iPhone. The release of iWatch months after its launch will be deemed normal because Apple in the past has unveiled devices but introduced it for sale, after a couple of months. Apple’s last Mac Pro hit the shelves a full six months after it’s unveiling.
Rumors also hint that the iWatch will carry a price tag of $400, which is $100 more than the other compatriots like LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live, and possibly the Moto 360 as well. However, all these predictions are based on rumors and wild guesses. Consumers probably have to wait for some time before the details are public. Apple has always maintained a tight lid on any news pertaining to its future products. So we will have to wait till September 9th for the unveiling event.
