For tech gadget lovers, September 9, 2014 is a day to watch. This is after reports came out that tech giant Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will be releasing iPhone 6 on that day.
The ground is certainly set. On Thursday, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) dispatched invitations to media houses for the event, which is scheduled to take place in a venue near their Cupertino, Calif, headquarters. Impeccable sources have revealed that the same event will be used to release the results till so far of Apple’s venture into wearable technology.
Their debut wearable is the highly hyped iWatch!
With a company synonymous with premium products that provide users with ease of use, great features, and elegance, technology fanatics believe that iWatch will definitely define the category, both in terms of price and utility.
MarketWatch reported that J.P. Gownder of Forrester Research has indicated that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will draw a new chapter in smartwatch technology with the release of iWatch.
“Wearables have so far offered more hype than market penetration, but that’s about to change,” said J.P. Gownder, of Forrester Research. “Apple will launch a product that launches a category, positioning itself in the center of that expanding category.”
Areas that many users are waiting to see are price, simplicity, elegance, and features. People are waiting to see if iWatch will deliver to their expectations and to justify the curiosity and anxiety that has surrounded the device’s release. In as much as many gadgets have been released this year, and consumers have gone deep into their pockets to purchase them, a release of a groundbreaking product will see more people digging even deeper to be the first ones to try out the technology.
However, Forbes Magazine has cleared the air, saying that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) might only commence shipping iWatch in early 2015. This is according to Re/code’s John Paczkowski, the man who first correctly reported about the September 9th event.
“So when does Apple plan to ship its eagerly anticipated wearable?” he asks. “That’s not clear, but my understanding is that we’re unlikely to see it at retail until after the holiday season — think early 2015.”
If it happens that way, it means consumers will have to wait a while longer before they can get their hands on the gadget.
