    Apple has plans to unveil its upcoming wearable device in September, alongside the iPhone 6, reports Re/code. The site previously suggested Apple had planned to debut the device at an October event, but now says that Apple's plans have changed.

    According to Re/code, the device will "make good use" of both HealthKit and HomeKit, two sets of APIs that were introduced during WWDC. HealthKit, which ties into Apple's iOS 8 Health app, focuses on health and fitness, while HomeKit is a home automation platform designed to allow users to control a variety connected devices.

    Though Apple has plans to introduce a wearable device in September, there is no word on when the device might ship. Given a lack of part leaks and rumors pointing towards a late 2014 or early 2015 launch, it is likely the device will be shown several months before it will be available to consumers.

    Apple's upcoming wearable device has been frequently referred to as the iWatch by both MacRumors and other rumor sites, but it remains unclear what Apple will call the device at launch. It is expected to be a wrist worn device, however, and rumors have suggested that it will come in multiple sizes with several different designs available at multiple price points.

    It is also expected to incorporate an array of different health and fitness sensors to measure various health-related metrics like steps taken, sleep quality, heart rate, and more.

    The reason we haven't seen any leaks on this iWatch which btw my phone spells it like that is because it's being made in Austin, Tx!

    Does this mean the iWatch will go on sale alongside the 4.7-inch iPhone 6? If so, that's great, my wallet is ready.

    I'm hoping these two devices work in harmony together.

    Remind me again how reliable recode has been on rumors in the past?

    Can we get a KGI Securities Analyst in here to either verify or correct or change the supposed date for this announcement?

    bring back the "one more thing..." for this, even though no one will be surprised it's still fun and will pay tribute to Steve

    'They are, but they're not.

    But maybe.

    Battery issues

    No, it's not coming.

    Well, maybe, not this year.

    Yes, 2015.

    Wait, late 2014.

    Hold on hold on, no

    Maybe

    Display issues

    It's not coming due to issues

    3 versions expected to come in 2014

    Well, make it 2015

    More issues, not coming soon.

    It's coming with the iPhone 6, (maybe)

    We're not sure'

    Sums up the last few months.
    :rolleyes:

    I only trust two sources. The WSJ and the cafeteria lady that works at Apple.

    Guess they pushed it back to September because Mark Gurman reported it to be released in October...
