Although Apple fans worldwide are waiting for the rumored Apple smart watch, we now hear that the device will not release until late 2014.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has been quoted as saying by Apple Insider that the rumored iWatch will debut only in the second half of 2014.
He also added that the device might be facing few hardware and software issues, and that could be the reason for the delay.
Kuo has suggested that components in the wearable devices haven’t matured.
Also, Apple may have not adequate resources to develop an iWatch version of iOS, because the company have to put its efforts to make big changes in its iPhone and iPad iOS this year. Because of all these reasons, the mass production of iWatch will begin only next year.
Kuo has also been quoted as saying that the iWatch will use a 1.5 to 2.0-inch display and will follow the features of the iPod nano, particularly its processor and the touch technology.
Apart from all these elements, he believes that Apple’s iWatch will use biometric features and would support increased security and health-related applications.
In the past, Kuo has offered accurate information on Apple products plans on several occasions. They include details on Apple’s 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, iPod and iPad details.
We guess we should go by his words, right?
