    If you have a hard look at all the changes that come with iOS 8, it's clear that Apple has to launch a wearable along with it. Some of the newest reports claim that Apple will announce the iWatch on September 9 along with the iPhone, but most of the other sources claim that we might not see a launch until December. Some of the latest rumors now claim that we won't see an iWatch until 2015, and today's source explains why. Digitimes is reporting that the reason why the iWatch might not see the light of day until 2015 is because the device has barely entered its "engineer verification test" ...

    There have been a ton of conflicting rumors regarding Apple's launch of the iWatch. A couple of weeks ago the word on the street was that the product would be announced and launched in December along with the 5.5-inch iPhone 6, and new rumors from just a week ago claim that everything is going to be announced on September 9. Whatever the case may be, one of the biggest questions that's still left on the table is the price tag of Apple's wearable offerings, and some credible sources have just chimed in. Re/code was the source that claimed that Apple's iPhone 6 event would happen on ...

    Between those new rumors about HTC wearables, and the surprise pre-IFA launches of the LG G Watch R and Samsung Gear S just the other day, we've totally got smartwatches on the brain. We've also been thinking a lot about Apple's plans for its next product launches, especially with that invite for a September 9 event going out yesterday; would the iWatch be featured? We heard a rumor just the other day specifically saying that this would be a dual iPhone/iWatch event, but now we're doubting just how useful that iWatch announcement might be, as we get word that sales of the smartwatch might ...

    With IFA just a week away, smartphone fans all across the world are gearing up for announcements of the latest hardware to hit platforms like Android and Windows Phone. But then there's also the contingent of Apple users out there, and while they don't have much to look forward to from IFA, they've got plenty to anticipate over the next few months as we expect to get word of new iPhones, iPads, and maybe even iWatches. So far, though, we haven't been able to nail down just when Apple planned to reveal any of this new gear. Today, our answer arrives, as the company distributes invitations ...

    Even though we're pretty much settled on a probable iPhone 6 event on September 9, most of the rumors around claim that we'll only see the 4.7-inch iPhone being announced. The reports even claim that we'll see the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 until December, along with the iWatch as well. At this point it's hard to know what rumors to believe, but some credible sources chime in with new data. Most of the credible Apple leaks have always come from the Wall Street Journal, but given the fact that Re/code hired most of its tech news team, we can safely say that this is another credible source as well. ...

    Are you a big smartwatch fan? Convinced that wearables are the way mobile tech is headed? We very much like the cut of your jib, but being an early adopter isn't always for everyone; just how much interest does the public really have in wearables, and is there anything the manufacturers could be doing to get them more interested? A new report from Jan Dawson, Chief Analyst at Jackdaw Research, paints a pretty bleak view of the market, citing low consumer interest and a poor selection of devices, and suggests that something big needs to change if smartwatches are really going to take off. ...

    Back in "the day", telephones were made up of a round speaker connected to a round microphone via a handle. To call someone, you picked up the "handset" from the "receiver" and "dialed" the number. The reason we still use that term today is because the apparatus for inputting our contact's phone number was a round dial. You'd stick your finger in the hole that represented the number you wanted, rotate the dial until it stopped, pull out your finger, and wait while it returned back to the starting position. This wasn't such a chore when only four digits were required to call someone. Then ...

    Apple's announcement of HealthKit at WWDC 2014 came with a couple of surprises and some odd disappointments. Most rumors claimed that this was more than just a repository of health information, and actually the platform that would enable Apple's wearable products to make sense. The problem is that Apple hasn't yet announced any wearable for this to happen, though that could change soon. Apple had filed for the HealthKit trademark in the US back in July, and many of us worried that we only saw medical devices being mentioned. Today the company has just filed for the same trademark in ...

    Apple has been famous for keeping its cool about the competition. This year alone we've seen Samsung launch 4 different smartwatch models, LG launch one, and there is a solid promise from Motorola and HTC to do the same. Even so, we have yet to see Apple launch its own iWatch, which is ironic since rumors of Apple building a wearable are older than Google's intentions of launching the already existing Android Wear. If you're wondering when we'll see Apple's contribution to the wearable market, it might be later than you think. New reports from Taiwanese sources claim that Apple's mass ...

    To say I've been excited about Google Now on a smartwatch is a bit of an understatement. I've ranted about how Google Now and wearables were a match made in heaven more than once. And the minute Android Wear was announced, I stopped what I was doing and vented about my buyer's remorse over the $250 I had just spent on Pebble Steel. Things have changed somewhat, though, and I'm now perfectly okay – even quite pleased – with Pebble Steel. Android Wear has finally hit virtual shelves and the launch hardware is, dare I say, boring and bland. And turns out, our Michael Fisher found the new ...

    The most contradicting and controversial rumors of the year have everything to do with Apple's iWatch. Some have said that we'll see two iWatch models launched this year, while others assume that Apple isn't ready for a launch in 2014. Now rumors are even considering a third iWatch model being produced as well, and these rumors continue to point to a 2014 launch. Taiwan’s Economic Daily is contradicting some of the recent rumors from KGI securities, and claiming that there will be three iWatch models instead of two. One of these models will have a 1.6-inch display, and then the two ...

    Looking forward to Apple's iWatch? Sure, just you and a couple billion other iOS fans who have so far been eyeing all this Android Wear business this summer with thoughts of “just wait; you'll see.” And based on the rumors we've heard so far, the iWatch really is shaping up to be a force to be reckoned with, not just with some very premium hardware but also deep OS-level integration with Apple's other mobile devices. We've been hoping to see the iWatch arrive sometime this fall, with reports leaning towards availability maybe sometime in October, following production hitting full-blast ...

    Most of the rumors that surround Apple lately have to do with the company's plans to build a wearable. We're still not sure that it'll be called the "iWatch," but we do know that the company has been hiring people from different sectors in health and fashion in order to build its first smartwatch. The sudden death of the Nike Fuelband has left a ton of very talented people available for such a task, and Apple is already taking action. Two former Nike Fuelband employees have just updated their LinkedIn profiles to confirm that they work for Apple. The two new Cupertino employees are Jon ...

    Rumors continue to arrive regarding what we can expect from Apple's iWatch in the coming months. We've already heard that the company is working on a probable October launch, and we've also heard of sports celebrities wandering the Apple campus, aside from other rumors that there will be two variants of the iWatch. If you're wondering what these two variants are, and what they'll do, you've come to the right place. A source familiar to the matter has just shared that Apple is already testing two iWatch models with very different designs. There is a "Sports" model, which apparently has a ...
