Taiwanese publication DigiTimes reports that Apple’s iWatch has reached the “engineering verification test” stage, which is one step below the “device verification test” stage, which is one step below production.
Apple sent out press invites for its September 9th media event last week, with the tagline âWish we could say more.â As per several media reports, the company will be announcing the next-generation iPhone and the much-rumored iWatch wearable product at the event.
We’ve already heard that Apple will introduce its much-rumored wearable product at its September 9th media event, but won’t ship it until early next year.
A few days ago, the well-sourced John Paczkowski of Re/code reportedÂ that Apple will be unveiling its first wearable device next monthÂ at its September 9th media eventÂ that it recently invited the press to attend. The wearable would likely be introduced alongside new iPhones and a myriad of other potential announcements. Following up on that report, Re/code now clarifies that while the wearable will be previewedÂ in September, it will not be released until next year.Â
On August 27, it was reported that Apple had indeed decided to unveil their wearable device, the oft-rumored iWatch, alongside the iPhone 6 on September 9. Now, a new report has surfaced that corroborates those claims.
On August 28, Apple confirmed that they would be holding their special event on September 9. While it’s already expected that this would be an important time for Apple, with the launch of the iPhone 6 and rumored unveiling of the iWatch, but now a bigger indication is pointing to an even bigger event.
While it was reported that Apple would unveil the iPhone 6 on September 9, it wasn’t quite official. Now Apple has confirmed the event.
It has been widely rumored that Apple is set to unveil its first wearable device, perhaps the so-called “iWatch,” at some point in the near future. While it was originally expected that Apple would introduce its first wearable at an October media event, aÂ recent report claims that Apple willÂ announce its wearable at its September 9th media event alongside the iPhone 6. With less than two weeks to go, the excitement is officially mounting.Â
Back in July, Steve “Woz” Wozniak opined on his thoughts on wearables, and noted his own disdain for the Galaxy Gear wearable he owned for only a day. Now he’s back with thoughts on Apple, and a potential changing market.
