Yield Issues With Apple Watch Solved, Production to Start in January?

Apple and Quanta have apparently solved yield issues with the Apple Watch and production is currently scheduled to begin January, reports UDN via GforGames.

Supply chain sources are now saying that production will begin next month instead of late February thanks to breakthroughs in the manufacturing of several vital components including the display and processor.

Quanta (the company responsible for the assembly of the Watch) has already increased its number of workers from 2,000 to 10,000, while the current goals is set for 20,000 employees. Reportedly, the first wave of Watches to be shipped will be of 3-to-5 million units, while Apple expects a total of 24 million Watches to be shipped throughout 2015. By the sound of it Quanta has been hard at work to meet the quota and the company’s efforts will most likely allow the Apple Watch to hit the market on-schedule.

Apple has said that its watch will launch in early 2015. The starting price of the device is $349; however, it's unclear how much the other versions of the device will cost. There are 34 Apple Watch models that customers will be able to choose from. It's been suggested that that the stainless steel/sapphire models will cost $999 and the gold models will cost around $4999 - $9999.
