iWatch to Be Released in 2015, Still Under Testing
According to what people familiar with the matter write, Apple's long-anticipated iWatch won't be released until 2015 as it is currently in the engineering verification testing (EVT) stage. Before entering the mass-production stage, it has to go through the production verification testing (PVT) and this requires time.
The report about the iWatch release date comes from DigiTimes reporters, who cite Apple's supply chain insiders. The journalists also claim that the guys from Cupertino won't announce their first-ever wearable device at a media event next Tuesday.
The sources pointed out that a product will need to first pass the PVT stage before entering to mass production, and between the EVT and PVT stages, Apple could still be change its design.
As for Apple's press conference on September 9, the sources said that Apple is unlikely to unveil the iWatch during the event.
Apple's iWatch is expected to come in multiple sizes and feature a number of health-monitoring sensors. As noted by several insiders, the guys from Cupertino will sell their smartwatch for about $400.
