Apple iWatch release date reportedly set for September 9

Finally the moment is just appeared to be around the corner when Apple iWatch will get out of the buzzes and become a reality. While the official announcement is yet to take place, the release date of Apple’s first wearable device is reportedly set for September 9.

According to a report by re/code, which is one of the reputed web publications in the technology world, Apple now plans to unveil its new wearable device on September 9. The announcement is reported to take place at the same event where the Cupertino giant will unveil its next-generation iPhone device, or devices.

Though the source has not confirmed the wearable device as iWatch, it is quite likely to be a first smartwatch by Apple which would be called iWatch.

There are speculations that the upcoming wearable device would make good use of Apple’s HealthKit health and fitness platform and also be operable with its HomeKit platform. The integration of HealthKit is expected to provide fitness-tracking features right on the wrists of the users, whereas HomeKit support might use the new framework for controlling connected devices.

If we take look at some past reports, the iWatch would be available for a price between $149 to $229. The company had acquired wireless chip maker Passif last year which would enable the development of the wearable device.

Apple CEO Tim Cook already hinted about iWatch by saying, “I think the wrist is interesting.” Moreover, the iWatch is likely to feature a solar charging layer on its curved screen to give better battery life against Android Wear-based smartwatches.

Alongside the iWatch, Apple is speculated to unveil its new iPhone, which would be called iPhone 6. The company is being in rumours to unveil two variants of its new iPhone with 4.7- and 5.5-inch display options.
