Recently, we came across news that Apple was extending its trademark to cover jewelry and watches. This has led to speculation that the Cupertino firm is planning to lift the lid on the rumoured iWatch, its first smartwatch, at WWDC in June, with the wearable’s launch rumoured to be in September (same time frame as the iPhone 6). Creating this much buzz for a product has been used by Apple in the past.
Before Steve Jobs lifted the lid on the original iPhone back in 2007, it had been making rounds in the rumour mill for 2 years. After officially unveiling the device, Apple, in a stroke of marketing genius, made people crave for the iPhone before releasing it in June of that same year.
At WWDC 2014, Apple is expected to introduce iOS 8, which comes with an app called Healthbook. The app is said to collect health-related data through sensors that is rumoured to come with the iWatch. So it would make sense for Apple to unveil their first smartwatch at the same time it introduces iOS 8.
Of course, since Apple has remained tight-lipped when it comes to yet-to-be-unveiled products, take this with a pinch of salt.
