As rumors go, the Apple “iWatch” has been tracking blogosphere headlines for an excellent few years now, however with Samsung having come via with several smartwatches already and Google having actually just taken the wraps off Android Wear, the Cupertino company understands that this emerging sector is in the midst of a boom. Thus, there’s a real agreement that the iWatch will certainly undoubtedly arrive later this year, and although a new report out of Asia provides yet more circumstantial evidence instead of anything solid, it does provide idea about the several versions that Apple is claimed to be preparing.

As each a short article over at the Economic Daily News, there’ll be two different setups of the 1.8-inch iWatch version, with a higher-end, more durable version strengthened by a scratch-resistant sapphire glass shell on the front. Provided that our next-gen iPhone is set to do likewise when it come to the sapphire glass, this report is certainly possible, yet interestingly, also indicates that the iPhone 6 will certainly not, as a matter of fact, gain from the durability and enhanced clarity that a pearl glass front panel would provide.

It takes place to keep in mind that Apple will, rather, use the product on the iWatch to examine the waters, unlocking to the prospect of using it with a future version of the iPhone, showing that the notion of sapphire glass for the next-gen smartphone is fairly some way off the mark.

There is said to be a somewhat smaller sized variant of the iWatch packing 1.6 inches of screen real property, but despite this apparent wide range of info on Apple’s inaugural, wrist-worn gadget, it does show up as though we’ll need to wait a long time before seeing it real.

A few days back, KGI’s Ming Chi Kuo recommended that the manufacturing of the gadget had actually been pressed back to the wrong side of November, and along with the late proving, Apple would just be able to equip around 3 million units at launch rather than the previously recommended amount of greater than triple that.

Provided that the larger, 5.5-inch iPhone is likewise apparently beleaguered by delays, the listing of new Apple gizmos launching imminently appears to be acquiring much shorter with each report, therefore let’s simply really hope that, despite these cases, Apple comes across no further barricades from here on in.
