    The latest details to arrive on Apple's rumored plans for its iWatch streamed in overnight, talking about multiple hardware versions and a bevy of sensors providing the wearable with all sorts of data about the user and his or her environment. At least some of those sensors are rumored to gather health data, which makes perfect sense considering the heavy focus on HealthKit we saw at the iOS 8 launch earlier this month. But now some new info has come our way that makes clear just to what extent health and fitness are to be a part of the iWatch, with word that Apple's recruiting pro ...

    We've recently heard some reports mentioning the future possible size and launch details of the upcoming Apple iWatch, but this latest bit from the Wall Street Journal -- which is most of the times accurate when it comes to Apple -- seems to contradict to a certain extent the previous Reuters report. Today's report claims that there will be not one, but "multiple versions" of the iWatch. In addition to this piece of information, we're also being teased with the fact that Apple's wearable "will include more than 10 sensors including ones to track health and fitness". The report is based on ...

    Rumors of an upcoming Apple iWatch have been piling up for months, and it seems 2014 may just be the year (if recent reports are to be believed). Today, we're learning of even more details of this upcoming wearable to add on to what we've already heard about -- the device's screen size and launch timeframe have allegedly been exposed, among other details. According to sources of Reuters, Apple is looking to ship 50 million iWatch units within the first year of it being sold. No other wearable has hit this mark quite yet, but because of Apple's brand recognition, this could be a ...

    The fact that there was no hardware announced at WWDC 2014 makes Apple's fall launches quite compelling. We were expecting the company to launch the iWatch and some revamp to the iPhone at the event, and at the moment all we have are progress reports. The latest rumors from China are in today, and it gives us a clear picture of what to expect for both the iWatch and the iPhone. When it comes to the iWatch, rumors are slowly getting more detailed. This report mentioned a launch by Q3/2014, and that we should expect to see components and production from Largan, Foxconn, Pegatron, Quanta, ...

    Apple may be famous for the products it has launched over the last couple of decades, but one thing that it has also become infamous for, is for the products it has decided not to launch, or even for the technologies it has always been late to adopt. Another thing Apple is famous for, and in this particular manner Steve Jobs mainly, is in attracting some very good talent in order to help him make the best decisions while he ran Apple. One of these talents is famous designer Hartmut Esslinger, which Steve Jobs hired in 1982, and which is still highly respected in the industry. If you're ...

    Apple allegedly has its best product pipeline in 25 years, and it now seems one of these extraordinary products will be the elusive iWatch. While the name "Apple iWatch" is entirely still a rumor, the fact that the company is working on a wrist-mounted wearable is now not -- an Apple staffer has confirmed that a smartwatch is in the works. In a profile of Cook done by The New York Times, numerous employees of the company were interviewed. Topics ranged from how Apple has changed post-Steve Jobs, all the way to the iWatch. Here's the exact quote: They point to the development of the ...

    Apple's making sapphire. Or rather, GT Advanced Technologies is handling the production in its Arizona plant, but these materials are destined for Apple products. The only questions, really, have concerned just which devices might end up with sapphire, and what it would be used for. And while it might be nice to see sapphire protecting the displays on all of Apple's upcoming gear, could there really be enough to go around? We've already heard rumors that production issues could limit the availability of certain models, but a new analyst report says we shouldn't be fretting, and claims that ...

    The Apple iWatch is coming; this becomes more and more of a certainty with each report. When exactly will the world see it? October of this year is what one of the most recent reports is claiming, though things are not certain at the moment, neither regarding a launch date, nor the sole existence/launch of the wearable. However, if Apple decided to announce the iWatch, UBS (investment firm) believes that the company will likely sell 21 million units in the fiscal 2015, with 36 million units in the year after that. These are all, of course, unverified bits if information, reports, and ...

    Rumors of an Apple iWatch have continually been swirling for months now, and it seems that the time is almost here. Multiple sources claim Apple is scheduling an October event to debut a new wearable, and while the iWatch isn't mentioned by name, the safest bet at the moment is to expect a wrist-mounted wearable to be unveiled. When Eddy Cue said that Apple has the greatest product pipeline in his 25 years at the company, he seemingly wasn't lying -- Apple reportedly is confident enough in this upcoming wearable to ramp up production between three million and five million units per month. ...

    Roughly 18 months ago, smartwatches and other types of wearables were practically nonexistent. Sure, the Nike FuelBand started hitting shelves over two years ago, and a few fitness bands followed thereafter. But it was nothing to the degree it is today. FitBits are everywhere; I see random passersby wearing Pebbles; people ask me all the time if my "watch that buzzes" is "one of those Samsung things"; and it seems everyone is aware of the early onset #glassholes of this world. Wearables – especially smartwatches – are more in the public eye than ever, and some of the biggest companies ...

    Even though Apple has been reluctant to jump on certain bandwagons like NFC or Wireless charging, once you notice the lack of success behind both these technologies, you get to understand why. Neither of these services has gained much traction on giant platforms like Android, so it's clear that Apple wanted to figure things out before investing. For the first time in years we get to hear Apple having a change of heart, but today we get some serious hints as to some progress in the matter of wireless charging. Reports all the way from China have Apple already looking for coil manufacturers ...

    16GB is just too much for some people, it looks like. Apple tried to solve this issue by releasing an 8GB variant of its iPhone 5c, but they could have another product coming, an 8GB iPhone 5s. He also mentions the possibility of the infamous iWatch finally being announced with iOS 8, but notes that the chances are slim. The KGI Securities analyst is stating that he believes the 5s 8GB flavor will show up at WWDC next week, but also states that Apple may simply not decide to introduce the device because of the fact that the change is very minor. He states that he expects not much hardware ...

    How much has been said about what to expect from Apple's first smartwatch? Rumors about this so-called iWatch have been fierce for months now, and it's rare that a week goes by without us hearing something about the hardware: different sizes, sensors, designers, displays... are Apple's plans really so varied and fluid, or is speculation fueling a lot of this as well? And for as long as this project has supposedly been in development, where's the hard evidence? Well, we're still probably at arm's length from getting to the truth behind Apple's wearable ambitions, but today we do manage to ...

    Apple's WWDC 2014 event is just around the corner, and the company has already confirmed the specific date and time for the launch keynote. It's planned to happen from 10AM to 12PM on Monday, June 2nd at Moscone West, as it has for the last couple of years. Surely we've seen Apple launch blockbuster products like the iPhone 4 in the last couple of years, but lately WWDC has been a software-focused event. It's hard to predict if things will change this year, but rumors point to a possibility. The biggest things to expect at this event are definitely iOS 8, and a more iOS-looking OS X ...
