As I'm sure everyone is aware. There has been fairly consistent rumours that the iWatch (or whatever it is called) will be announced next Tuesday and released in 2015. However, I feel that this is incorrect and the iWatch will be announced next Tuesday and released in 'December 2014'. There are a number of reasons why I feel this will be the case. 1. The time gap between announcing the product and releasing it in early December 2014 would be longer than that of the iPad. The iPad was announced in late January and went on sale in early April, just over two months, therefore, there's plenty of time for the iWatch to be announced, get FCC approval and be manufactured for an early December release. That would leave a gap longer than the gap between the iPad announcement and iPad release. 2. Why would Apple want to miss out on Christmas sales? There are many people who are going to want to buy this product as a gift, for example, those who are on the 'S' product cycle, may get an iWatch as a gift this year instead of the iPhone 6. 3. Bumper Apple Shipments. This suggests that apple has 'Above normal' numbers of products being shipped this autumn and therefore, it's a real possibility that the iWatch could be part of this shipment, I mean, are iPhone 6 shipments going to be hugely above that of other Apple launches? Unlikely i'd say, therefore that suggests that another product could be being shipped in addition to normal. What do you think?
