When will Apple finally get around to releasing its smartwatch? Rumors argue quite convincingly that such a product is in development, but they’ve been in disagreement (or just fully in the dark) when it comes to precisely when the so-called iWatch might become available. In recent months, the narrative seems to be one dominated by talk of delays, and rumors have suggested that it won’t be until well within the second half of the year before we see any iWatch launch. Now some new sources are weighing-in on the matter, describing some particular setbacks Apple has supposedly been enduring.
Apparently, we’re looking at roadblocks on multiple fronts, both with the smartwatch hardware itself, as well as with personnel overseeing the project. Issues regarding the latter have forced Apple to find new leadership to guide the iWatch’s development, while we hear that technical problems have plagued the company’s efforts so far as the watch’s screen and battery are concerned.
In spite of these developments, the sources in question still believe that a 2014 iWatch launch is in the cards. Maybe instead of August or September, we now might get to see it arrive sometime more like October or November?
