Apple will use iOS 8 for iWatch and implement some sensors to monitor fitness and health signs  for  'Healthbook' app. An expert on sleep research and a 'User Studies Exercise Physiologist' have been hired to work on the project.

According to Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty, Apple may gain $17.5 billion from iWatch sales over the first year.

You can enjoy the concept below.

The photos of the home button of the iPhone 5S show that it includes some new components. Accordng to Nowhereelse, they are most likely to refer to the rumored fingerprint scanner.

Even more interesting, a mysterious square element placed closer button instantly revives the rumor. Followed by two other components attached to the extension of the map and that all seemed to be resistance. Needless to say that these three elements are absent from the button back to the home of the iPhone 5 and is to my knowledge unprecedented for this spare parts, all iPhone generations combined.
