The Apple iWatch wearable technology on the rumor mill exploded over the weekend Feb. 10, 2013. The New York Times stated from anonymous sources familiar with Apple product development that Apple in their Cupertino, California facility is experimenting with an Apple iWatch made of curved and bendable glass known as Willow Glass.
The anonymous sources from the New York Times also stated that the Apple iWatch would run on Apple's iOS platform. It would also standout from current competitors with the companies understanding of how Willow Glass can curve around and interact with the natural movement of the human body. No other information is currently available on the Apple iWatch and Apple refused to comment any further.
It has developed many questions to the entire world about what the Apple iWatch could look like and the features it would contain. Will it include Siri? Will it include Apple Maps with real time directions? Will it sync with your iPhone or iPad to receive calls, text messages, and emails? How much would it cost?
Apple has secretly been working on wearable technology for years and last year the Chinese Gadget website tech.163.com said that Apple was developing a watch with bluetooth and a 1.5 inch display. There is one truth to the Apple iWatch rumor that Apple actually has the technology and development to make a fully functioning Apple iWatch.
Apple is moving towards a reliance on wearable devices for the future of their company to increase smartphone device sales. They look at the human body as a blank slate for wearable devices. It will be a seamless transition for Apple to make since they are already in the wearable technology space with numerous accessories for the iPod Touch and iPhone 5 that can be worn on the human body.
