A new report about Apple releasing an ‘iWatch’ has surfaced on the web. NyTimes says that Apple is planning on releasing an iWatch with Curved glass. This is not the first time this credible publication has reported about a wearable Apple gadget as it has published similar report back in December 2011 as well. At that time NYTimes reported that under the supervision of Richard DeVaul a team at Apple is working on a “curved-glass iPod that would wrap around the wrist.” After few days DeVaul left Apple to join Google and the rumors died out.
While it cannot be confirmed but the popular belief is that the iWatch is going to be powered by iOS. The biggest selling point of this new watch is said to be its curved glass display. Rumors are also suggesting that Apple might use Corning’s latest flexible glasses that were introduced recently.
On the other hand WSJ is reporting that Apple is indeed experimenting with designs for a wrist watch that will have similar features to smartphones. According to the journal Apple has discussed plans about an iWatch with its manufacturing partner Hon Hai Precision Industry Co.
With reports from such credible publications coming in its hard to believe that Apple isn’t experimenting on a watch. Will Apple release it to public, that’s a totally different story though.
