    I find it strange that with so many iPhone 6 leaks (albeit unconfirmed), that there hasn't been a single leak of purported mould, or fascia or something.

    Makes me think it's not going to happen?

    well if the iphone leaks are in fact real it is b.c production has started. That would probably mean the iwatch is slated for a later date.

    Who knows, but my guess is due to the nature of the design/use and manufacturing time/process/quantity, it's easier to contain. As with an Apple TV or something. As release gets closer maybe we'll see more.

    Yeah, I too thought the same thing as the OP.

    Perhaps poster #2 is correct!?

    that's because there is no iwatch coming this year, and there is no 5.5" iphone coming this year or next. everyone will have to wait until iphone 7 to see if apple decides to make anything bigger than a 4.7" screen.

    While there have been no physical leaks, there has been an apparent leak of IOS 8 which has shown an app called "watch utility" this may point to the iWatch. Also health book which may be connected to iWatch.

    It could be that Apple will release these features in IOS 8 ready for an iWatch launch in September along with the iPhone 6.

    No facts to back that up !

    I would bet that the iPhone 6 will have a bigger screen than the 5 or 5S.:p

    This screenshot was fake.
    OT I think we will see the iWatch this year. We heard so much information about it and all this Healthbook thing indicates that around the release of iOS 8 Apple also will be releasing the iWatch.

    Year on year, Apple seem to have a incredibly hard time of hiding a final iDevice. I haven't noticed it happen so much with laptops/desktops etc.
    I've known well in advance what the last 4 iPhones would be like.
    Speculation is really high for the watch (as is interest).
    For a release in the last part of the year (like iPhone), when would Apple need to start the process?

    It's funny how Apple joke about it, I know Steve jobs did and Phil Schiller did in the last iphone keynote haha

    I didn't know it was fake, my mistake. But the health book is interesting and I hope your right that Apple will release the iWatch or even just announce it along side IOS 8.

    Personally I think if they are putting all these features in (such as health book) then are getting ready to announce/release the iWatch. I just hope its not going to cost thousands as some "analysts" have been reporting.

    What you're missing is just how massive the phone market is compared to everything else.

    http://daringfireball.net/linked/2014/04/14/snell-wearable

    Even if it's massively successful the watch will only sell a fraction of what the new phone does. Nothing to do with how good or bad it is, that's just the size of the interested market.

    This means the iPhone needs months and months of pre-building to make enough for launch day whereas a watch can probably be started later this summer and still have enough time to make all they need.

    I think the iWatch will be waterproof. Although I'm sure some people will complain of leaks.

    And yes, mould will develop if water gets in!

    That could be very true, but I think the iwatch will sell like crazy just for the simple fact it is apple. If they make the mistake and think it will be a niche market, there will be massive shortages.

    2 things:

    1: it's not in production stage yet, it's still in planning stages.
    2. it's not coming out this year. FAIL

    I want the iWatch to come out this year tho to compete. I've waited long enough.

    What makes you say this? There have been a lot of rumours that the iWatch will launch this year, possibly at WWDC but more likely in September. Even Tim cook promised new "product category's" in 2014.

    I didn't say it won't come out. I was implying the lack of leaks means one or the other. Not necessarily a bad thing but more like an inconvenience for people like me who like to buy apple products lol

    What makes you say that? i think it depends how much time and resources they have put into it. Also how much has been given to the iPhone 6, i'm still hoping for screen options on that one and not just 4.7 on its own.

    It's almost given that we will see the Healthbook App in iOS 8. That also means Apple has to release the iWatch :)

    Apple HAS to release the iWatch? I don't think they have to do anything.
