Posted by · 8580 views · Translate

Apple's rumored iWatch has been one of the most highly-anticipated products to launch in 2014. Supply chain rumors now point to a third quarter launch for the device, according to a new report from Economic Daily (via MacRumors).

The report cites an alleged bill of materials for the device, and claims that Apple has asked suppliers to deliver the products starting in August, placing the device's launch sometime in Q3.

The iWatch will be manufactured by Quanta Computer, while Taiwan-based chip design house Richtek has also entered the supply chain. The device's touch panel will be supplied by TPK, the paper noted.

The report also claims that Apple is looking to ship 65 million units in 2014, a number which would crush the competition. Apple will reportedly design the processor behind the iWatch, but outosurce production to Samsung.

Recent rumors have pointed toward the iWatch focusing on health-related statistics. iOS 8 will allegedly be shipping with Health Book, which will have the ability to show heart rate, hydration, blood pressure, activity, nutrition, blood sugar, sleep, respiratory rate and more. Many believe Apple will source the data from an iWatch-like device.

Since when did apple need a copycat? All samscum did was rush the watch. They haven't made one yet because they take their time. Especially for features.

There goes apple again, Tim Crooks at it's best, just like his predecessor (Thief Jobs)taught him to steal and copy ideas from others. These are Nike knock off, poor apple people nothing original whatsoever. hey K-Y-Jelly you'll be the first one to try one on. At least samshunk made something already, so whatever apple will do, it will be a complete knock off of all the other brands.

You are a knockoff of truth. Gimmicking at it's finest like your strategy (troll defense) you taught yourself to conclude like that. Pro trolls being so naive 24/7. You'll be one of the first to be mind fcked before you know it. Samshit was completely tired of apple releasing stuff first, but if iWatch is a knockoff, explain why every last product crushes the competition. If you even look back at what the fart watch does, it barely does anything or looks new. Samscum is a knockoff of everything they make, including you. If it were a knockoff it would be considered bad but you won't admit the truth unless you put some damn patience in your life.

The iWatch would be useless without a frontal camera for FaceTime.
