There have been several rumors that Apple will launch an iOS based smartwatch, informally called iWatch.
Analyst Wanli Wang at CIMB Securities claims that two Taiwanese firms, Inventec and Quanta Computer have received orders to make the highly anticipated iWatch, according to The Economic Times.
Wang also claims that according to his sources Apple will launch the smartwatch in 2014, and could sell it for an average price of $199. Wang predicts that Apple will ship 63.4 million units in the year after the launch. Wang hasn’t provided any further details about iWatch.
Tim Cook recently said wearable tech was an area of ‘profound’ interest for the company. Apple has also been busy filing trademark for the “iWatch” name in several countries, which indicates that it is gearing up to launch a smartwatch.
