    So we all know every year we will get parts that leak from China/Taiwan for iphones/ipads, but nothing so far for the iwatch/iband! Do you guys think that's because the actual product is made in the USA? Discuss....

    We see leaks for the iphone and ipad because they are made in China, with a huge manufacturing team with many opportunities to leak.

    To that logic, we might not be seeing iWatch leaks because the watch is being developed in the USA with either tighter security measures or a much smaller manufacturing team.

    Interesting thought but I highly doubt it. I don't see how Apple or any American manufacturer could ramp up hiring and a huge, initial production run without someone finding out along the way or leaking it.

    The only ways an Apple product could be developed and manufactured without parts leaks and the such are if no one knew it was an Apple product, it was being manufactured internally, or it is not being produced at all.

    Probably because it's not being produced on the massive scale that iPhones are. Apple manufacturers several millions of iPhones for launch each year because they know how well it will sell. With so many of them being produced it's difficult to prevent leaks. The iWatch is an unproven product and likely will be produced in significantly less quantities than the iPhone. If I recall we didn't get very many leaks, if any, of the first iPhone either.

    I thought of this also. The reason is US employes don't leak things.

    Small vs. large scale manufacturing sure, but I don't buy the US vs. China argument.

    An iWatch would likely be a top selling item, so it would be too costly to manufacture in the US.

    There probably haven't been any leaks because it hasn't entered production yet.

    The reason things get leaked is because the low paid (US or China) worker thinks he can make a quick buck.
    To say that US workers don't leak things is IMO racist. You can't base a persons level of integrity based on their nationality.

    They leak plenty of things, thats why there are adult diapers.:p

    No leaks because it doesn't exist.

    The original iPhone wasn't leaked. If the iWatch is going to be hugely groundbreaking (I imagine it would be if Apple are going to commit to that market), it's going to be under lock-and-key with only a handful of prototypes; then will be demoed and production will begin a few months later.

    Just my $0.02.

    Im not being racist. I just looked at Mac Pro. I dont see any leaks for that. Then I look at the sapphire thing they have going in the US. No leaks there. Then I look at things in China like the iPhone, iPad and such. My mind blows up from all the rumors.

    I can always count on you to respond to my post...

    The original iPhone also was announced well before it was released, somewhere around 6 months, the same could happen with the iWatch if it is real and that would explain the no leaks.

    Easy to smuggle out an iPhone, produced in their millions. A little harder to smuggle out a MacPro isn't it?

    Your logic is flawed. To say the US are more trustworthy and honest than Chinesse workers is racist.

    Precisely what I was thinking. I have no doubt it exists and Apple are hiding some awesome tech up their sleeves.

    Weren't there a few articles a while back on how hardcore Steve was about developing it?



    Well, it is smaller than its former self... :)

    I'm not being racist. I'm just trying to think through it a bit with the information i have.

    Not that small!
    But yes I VERY much doubt there were any leaks regarding the first MacPro!
